Porcello scratched for Sunday
Just got back from the clubhouse, where the Tigers announced that Rick Porcello will NOT start on Sunday. He cut the nail on his right index finger on a ground ball during PFP, and will be held back for two or three days. Jim Leyland said he was told it was a 50-50 shot that he would be able to play.
“Fifty-fifty is not good enough,” Leyland said. “I wouldn’t pitch anybody who had that situation.”
Alfredo Figaro will start Sunday against the Nationals instead.
