Coke seems likely for bullpen

Still no answers on who will fill out the final two spots in the Tigers rotation, but it’s looking slightly clearer on who won’t. Manager Jim Leyland said today it’s 99.8 percent certain (his percentage, not mine) that Phil Coke will open the season in the bullpen. It’s nearing the point where if Coke was going to start, or at least be seriously considered for it, he would have to start being stretched out in his pitch count. Instead, Coke threw only one inning today against the Yankees.
