Berry could return to lineup on Sunday

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- The logjam of injured players in Tigers camp might finally be about to clear. After Brennan Boesch, Don Kelly and Ramon Santiago all returned from injuries in the past week, Quintin Berry might be cleared to play on Sunday.

Berry hasn't played since Feb. 24, the third game of the Tigers' spring slate, while dealing with patellar tendinitis in his left knee. Berry appeared close to a return earlier this week, but it didn't happen. Depending on how he feels Sunday morning after a heavy workout Saturday, he could be ready to go.

"I think it's a possibility, but don't hold me to that," manager Jim Leyland said on Saturday morning. "The report from the trainers today was he was really going to get after it today, and he thought that he probably would be available for us tomorrow. … I don't know, I think it's a possibility."
