Rondon (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a 20-pitch bullpen session in Florida on Thursday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Rondon is progressing as expected with each of his mound sessions, but he remains without a clear timetable. With Joe Nathan (elbow) now done for the season, Rondon could be the No. 2 option at closer behind Joakim Soria, who is expected to take over the duties immediately.

Rondon (shoulder) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Rondon was only able to throw fastballs in the session, so manager Brad Ausmus indicated he was hopeful the next step would be to mix in off-speed pitches. There's still no clear timetable for the 24-year-old, but he appears to be progressing well as he deals with biceps tendinitis.

Rondon (biceps) has been throwing without discomfort, according to Tigers' manager Brad Ausmus. He was put on the disabled list April 1.

It's long toss and not off the mound, but it's a great sign. He could be back sooner rather than later. The Tigers haven't needed him yet -- they've been locked and loaded in three wins thus far. But it will be good to get him back in there -- he'll deliver a few holds and will certainly take the pressure off the Tigers' relief corps.

Rondon (biceps) will be placed on the 15-day DL, MLB.com's Jason Beck reports.

Rondon underwent a recent MRI which revealed the issue, and the middle reliever remains without a timetable to begin throwing again. The 25-year-old righty is likely a long distance away from pitching in high-leverage situations in Detroit.

Rondon is dealing with shoulder tendinitis that was discovered during a recent MRI, Dana Wakiji of FOX Sports Detroit reports.

Rondon doesn't expect the ailment to be serious, but it may sideline the reliever for a few days leading up to the regular season. The right-hander has allowed four earned runs on 10 hits over 7.1 innings this spring, and expects to work in middle relief in the majors in 2015.

Rondon was not available to pitch Wednesday with a sore shoulder, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Rondon had previously been sidelined with a neck injury but it appears the shoulder soreness is a separate issue for the 24-year-old. The exact extent of this setback is not immediately clear, but he should be in line to serve as a late-inning reliever for the Tigers if he can stay healthy.
