On Wednesday afternoon, Detroit Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand updated the status of injured relief pitcher Daniel Schlereth. Schlereth was moved to the 60-day disabled list on June 2 due to a setback in his recovery while rehabbing from an injured shoulder and is currently suffering from shoulder tendonitis.
Rand said that Schlereth was making progress, should return to mound work in the near future and is currently rehabbing at the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic in Denver, Colorado.
"He's throwing now to 120 feet," Rand said. "We're getting close to the point where he'd be ready to resume a mound progression. At that point, we'll reassess him."
Schlereth is expected to report to Lakeland, Florida, in the near future to begin training with regular throwing.
