We've heard how Jeremy Bonderman is doing as he prepares to return to Detroit's major league roster, but what about the other Tigers currently on the disabled list? Matt Treanor is likely out for the rest of the season, but three others look to be recovering nicely.
- Carlos Guillen is eligible to come off the DL today, but isn't ready to rejoin the team. Jason Beck reported on Saturday that Guillen was just beginning to swing a bat again. But in today's Detroit News, he mentioned that his injured shoulder is still holding him back.
- Nate Robertson's DL stint ends tomorrow, and he says his back is feeling much better, so he could be activated. As recently as this past weekend, Robertson was still experiencing back spasms and stiffness, but team trainers adjusted his anti-inflammatory meds, and that apparently made a difference.
- Marcus Thames has made progress with his rib strain, and will soon take batting practice. If that goes well, a rehab assignment wouldn't be far off.
