On Wednesday night, Michigan media outlet Mlive reported that Daniel Schlereth's most recent MRI revealed that the Detroit Tigers' left-handed relief pitcher has no structural damage to his throwing arm. At this time, Schlereth is in Denver taking part in a rehabilitation program that is working on range-of-motion and strengthening exercises with a physical therapist by the name of Mike Allen.
Schelereth received a second examination last week at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Denver after suffering a minor setback in his rehab when he was unable to finish a 30-pitch bullpen session after attempting only 15 pitches. The follow-up examination this week matched the initial results, which displayed rotator cuff tendinitis inflammation. The injury was discovered when the Tigers attempted to move Schelereth to Triple-A Toledo, the move was voided when the pitcher admitted that his shoulder had been bothering him for an extended period of time.
