Schlereth, Guillen take steps toward return
The injury info around Tigers camp wasn’t limited to Joel Zumaya today. Daniel Schlereth threw a bullpen session this morning without discomfort in his strained left hamstring. His last hurdle is to be able to run all-out, which he hopes to get down in the next couple days. He says he’s on track to pitch again this weekend.
Schlereth estimates he threw about 40 pitches today.
“Pitches were down for the most part,” Schlereth said, “which was a good sign.”
As for Guillen, he ran the bases for the first time today and felt fine. The big test there was changing direction as opposed to running straight ahead like he had been. He thinks a couple more times doing that, including at all-out speed, should put him close to a return. Tuesday marks three weeks left before camp breaks, and the original timetable projected Guillen to be game-ready with two weeks left.
