Downs feels fine after 10-pitch inning at Class A

DETROIT -- The one bit of good news on the injury front for the Tigers on Friday came from lefty reliever Darin Downs. His shoulder felt fine after his 10-pitch rehab inning Thursday for Class A West Michigan.

Downs' next step will be a trip to Triple-A Toledo, where he's expected to make a relief appearance Sunday night. The Mud Hens are home through next week, so he'll have ample time to get in his innings before returning from the disabled list.

Downs went on the DL almost three weeks ago with tendinitis in his left shoulder. Once he got rolling with his throwing program out of the All-Star break, it didn't take him long to get back to game action.

"I'm taking it day by day, whatever they say," Downs said. "I just tell [the medical staff] how I feel."
