Bonine set for Saturday

Pointing to Bonine’s record over the last two years, Leyland said, “If you can’t give a guy like that a chance, who are you going to give a chance to?”

That’s part of a pretty busy morning. Vance Wilson revealed that when he felt his elbow flare up last week, which he thought was some torn scar tissue, he actually tore the ligament in his elbow again. He’ll undergo another surgery, probably next week, and will start the process all over again.

Joel Zumaya, meanwhile, was back in the Tigers clubhouse today on a visit. He said his rough second inning Wednesday night was partly the result of trying some different grips and getting himself out of sorts. He’s very hopeful that he can be back in time for the series in San Diego, his hometown. Look for a story on the site later today.
