LAKELAND, Fla. -- Bruce Rondon's allergies settled down on Sunday, allowing him to pick up his pitching program where he left off a few days ago. The hard-throwing Tigers reliever threw his second session against live hitters and showed little if any rust, mixing sliders and changeups with some fastballs against a few Detroit batters.

"Today we were just trying to get him back on track," manager Brad Ausmus said.

Danny Worth, who faced Rondon for the second time in four days, said he was tough on Sunday, about the same as before despite not working out in between sessions.

Rondon was sent home Friday morning while dealing with illness, later diagnosed as allergies. He did not work out Saturday, raising the level of concern, but was a full participant on Sunday.
