Detroit Tigers reliever Daniel Schlereth pitched a hitless inning for single-A Lakeland on Saturday night. He now has six innings of one-run, three-hit ball under his belt on the rehab assignment.
The 26-year-old leftie was placed on the 60-day DL in April after six early appearances that didn't go so well (10.29 ERA, brutal 2.71 WHIP in 7.0 innings pitched). He pitched pretty well for the Tigers in 49 games in 2011, posting a 3.49 ERA with 44 strikeouts.
Schlereth is scheduled for two more weeks in Single-A. He'll have to be called up by the end of August if he wants to see any potential postseason time with the Tigers, who are currently two games behind the first-place Chicago White Sox in the AL Central.
