Berry better, but will likely rest a bit longer

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Quintin Berry's left knee felt much better Tuesday than it did when it forced him out of the Tigers game on Sunday, allowing him to take part in a pregame workout Tuesday morning on Kaline Field behind left field at Joker Marchant Stadium. However, he was not ready to return for Tuesday's game against the Rays.

The Tigers have their final off-day of camp on Wednesday. Leyland said Berry will work out again Thursday afternoon, but that he'll probably sit out that evening's game against the Astros.

"If he's ready to go and OK to play, I'll take him to Viera [Friday to face the Nationals]," Leyland said.
