Robertson throws side, good for Sunday
Looks like Nate Robertson is good to go for the Tigers Sunday at the Metrodome. He threw a side session this morning, didn’t show any obvious problems and said afterwards he’s all good.
The Tigers wanted to see Robertson “air it out,” as Jim Leyland said, to see how his injury reacted. That seemed to be the problem with Washburn and his knee, which seemed to hold up fine when he threw on the side but swelled up when he got to game intensity.
