Leyland keeping tabs on reliever Alburquerque
DETROIT -- Though Al Alburquerque finished out the ninth inning Saturday following a visit from head athletic trainer Kevin Rand, manager Jim Leyland was still slightly concerned about the soreness around Alburquerque's right hip area. He planned to keep tabs on it, but unless it grows into a bigger issue, it isn't going to keep the pitcher out of action.

Leyland has been looking for ways to ease Alburquerque into action after he missed about three weeks with a concussion. He's likely to continue easing him in for a while.

Alburquerque said Sunday morning he's feeling good, but the injury isn't a concern on his part.
