Coke all set to start Wednesday at Texas
Just watched Phil Coke have a long tossing session on an otherwise empty field Saturday afternoon here at U.S. Cellular Field. He seemingly got through that fine, and the Tigers have him listed as their probable starter Wednesday at Texas.
Coke gave up three runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings of work in his rehab start Friday night for Triple-A Toledo at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Most of the damage happened in the sixth. It was his first game action since May 23, when he suffered a bone bruise on his right foot.
Unless something drastically changes, Andy Oliver is headed back to Toledo. He’s not listed among the other probables through next series.
