Covering my first Tigers game in over a week. Anyway, both Zumaya and Rodney played catch today — separately, not together — and felt fine. There’s a chance Rodney could start throwing off of a mound this weekend, but it’s hard to tell right now. No such timetable exists on Zumaya quite yet.
Polanco is in the lineup as expected and will likely start again Wednesday before deciding what to do with the day game Thursday. Rabelo is hurting a little but still available at catcher, so no need for an emergency catcher scenario.
