DETROIT -- Daniel Schlereth now has six innings of one-run, three-hit ball under his belt in his rehab assignment at Class A Lakeland after a hitless inning on Saturday night.
Schlereth, who is rehabbing from left shoulder tendinitis, started the game for the Flying Tigers and recorded a walk and a strikeout in his inning. He has allowed one hit over 3 2/3 innings in his last three games, but has walked five batters over that stretch.
With two weeks left in Schlereth's Minor League rehab assignment, the question is now whether and when he'll be promoted to pitch at one of the upper levels in the farm system. That's the next logical step if he has any chance of spending September with the big club.
