Guillen update (and it's good news)
Good news on Carlos Guillen from head athletic trainer Kevin Rand: Guillen began playing catch Thursday in Miami and is set to begin hitting off a tee Monday.
Guillen, sidelined since early May with inflammation in his right shoulder, is making three sets of 25 throws each at 45 feet. According to Rand, he’s feeling good and throwing without any restrictions.
“We’re in the pain-free stage,” Rand said. “It’s now a question of addressing the [arm] strength.”
Guillen will stay in Miami next week while the Tigers are on the road. Now that he’s doing more baseball activity, however, he’ll likely be back in Detroit when the team returns home a week from Monday.
