  • Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Rehab assignment on tap next

    Skubal (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment as long as he bounces back from Tuesday's live batting practice session with no issues, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Skubal has reportedly been impressive in facing live hitters and is about ready to commence with a rehab assignment. He's expected to require 4-to-5 rehab starts before returning, so the left-hander probably won't be an option for the Tigers before late June. He's coming back from flexor tendon surgery.

  • Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Throws live batting practice

    Skubal (elbow) threw live batting practice Friday at Comerica Park, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Jonathan Schoop was one of the hitters that stood in against Skubal and told reporters that the 26-year-old left-hander looked "nasty." Velocity readings had him reaching 98 mph with his fastball at one point. Skubal is on the road back from August 2022 flexor tendon surgery and could be an option for the Tigers' starting rotation sometime in late June.

  • Tigers' Tarik Skubal: To throw live BP this week

    Skubal (elbow) is scheduled to throw live batting practice later this week, Jason Beck of reports.

    The live BP workout will be a significant step forward for Skubal, who has been limited to bullpen sessions over the last month. Nearing the end of his recovery from August 2022 flexor tendon surgery, the 26-year-old southpaw might be a consideration for the Tigers' rotation by the end of June.

  • Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Nearing rehab assignment

    Skubal (elbow) will throw his another bullpen session Saturday as he continues his recovery from last year's flexor tendon surgery, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Skubal is 11 months removed from surgery and has been throwing all of his pitches, with Saturday's bullpen being his seventh since he began ramping up. He should be cleared to face hitters soon and could start a rehab assignment not long after that. A return to the Detroit rotation by late June seems possible.

  • Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Bullpen session coming Saturday

    Skubal (elbow) will throw another bullpen session Saturday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Skubal's last bullpen session was Sunday, during which he only threw fastballs. The Tigers still have not set a target date for Skubal's return, but considering he has yet to be cleared to face live hitters, it's possible he stays on the IL beyond his eligible return date of May 29.

  • Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Completes 15-pitch side session

    Skubal (elbow) tossed a 15-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    Skubal threw exclusively fastballs during the session, which marked his first time taking part in mound work in nearly nine months after he underwent flexor tendon surgery last August. After opening the season on the 60-day injured list, Skubal won't be eligible to make his 2023 debut until May 29, but the Tigers haven't provided a firm target date for him to be activated. A clearer timeline for his debut could come into focus once he completes several more side sessions and faces live hitters in batting practice before advancing to what will likely be a multi-start minor-league rehab assignment.
