Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann following today's bullpen session: "As of now, I'm on schedule to make my next start, whenever that is. I think I might throw another side on Tuesday, another bullpen on Tuesday, and we'll go from there. Do some stuff off the mound, cover first tomorrow maybe, but I'm feeling good and [I'll] see how I feel I guess." Asked about starting Tuesday, Zimmermann indicated that was never the original plan. Tigers have until Wednesday (10 days) to be able to retroactively place him on the disabled list for the groin injury suffered last Sunday. Team will monitor how he feels tomorrow, but Zimmermann was encouraged: "The big test was today and I came out of it just fine. I'm sure I'll be a little sore, but nothing to be concerned about." --

Tigers pitcher Shane Greene also throwing bullpen session right now. Team is planning on having him make an additional rehab start and throw approximately 75 pitches, but that could change with injury, heavily-taxed pen etc. Asked about the starter vs. reliever debate, manager Brad Ausmus said: "I'm not sure really what his best role is." Ausmus did reiterate this: "The needs of the team come first."
Olney: Kershaw's command 'so extraordinary'
What Clayton Kershaw is doing this season might be a case of the best pitcher of all time doing his best work, particularly in how he controls the ball-strike count.

Manny Machado flips his bat in disgust after striking out. Looked like he just missed clubbing HR on about four different pitches in that AB
