Robertson on Friday, Porcello Saturday
The cut on Rick Porcello’s right index finger continues to bleed when he tries to throw, so his next outing has been pushed back from Friday to Saturday, when the Tigers visit the Yankees. It’s possible, Jim Leyland said, that they’ll need to push him back again. He needs to be able to throw a side session before they send him out in a game, and that hasn’t happened yet.
The ripple effect means that Nate Robertson will start Friday against the Nationals instead of Thursday in a camp game. Supposedly the camp game is now canceled, so there won’t be much of anything going on around the complex Thursday afternoon.
