Tigers trying to get work in for Valverde

Tigers trying to get work in for Valverde

|
ARLINGTON -- The Tigers are still trying to get closer Jose Valverde, who hasn't pitched since Sept. 6 against the Chicago White Sox, back in action.

Valverde, who has been out with tenderness in his right elbow, didn't get used Tuesday night with the Tigers on the road and trailing in the ninth inning. But manager Jim Leyland said he would try to get Valverde in Wednesday's game if he can, leading or trailing.

"If he feels like really, really good, I want to pitch him," Leyland said. "If there's a little lingering there, I probably won't. But he has to pitch."
