Downs progressing through rehab program

Downs progressing through rehab program

|

DETROIT -- The Tigers may get an extra left-handed arm in the bullpen soon, and it won't be through a trade. Darin Downs is still progressing through tendinitis in his left shoulder that has sidelined him since July 7.

Downs has made two Minor League rehab appearances in the past week -- one for Class A West Michigan and the other for Triple-A Toledo. In those outings, Downs hasn't allowed a hit in two innings while striking out three.

Downs is expected to make another appearance for Toledo on Wednesday night. He will either throw two innings or until he reaches a specific pitch count. Downs says he doesn't know the plan following his upcoming rehab appearance, but he may pitch another outing at Toledo over the weekend.
