• Wei-Yin Chen's pitching session in Sarasota, Fla., went well Saturday, Showalter said. Chen was scheduled to throw 35 pitches from a full mound for the first time since straining his oblique in Minnesota. Showalter said he has a schedule mapped out for Chen's rehab assignment, but he will discuss the rehab schedule with general manager Dan Duquette before before making any final decision.
• Jason Hammel (virus) received an IV on Friday and was not in the clubhouse Friday or Saturday. Showalter said if the team doctor thinks Hammel is past the contagious part of the virus, he'll be back Sunday. At this point, it seems unlikely Hammel would miss his scheduled Monday start in Detroit, but that remains a possibility.
• Miguel Gonzalez's wife is scheduled to give birth Wednesday. As of now, it appears Gonzalez will make his scheduled start Sunday, but obviously that could change quickly. Showalter said they have a plan in place for if Gonzalez needs to be scratched Sunday to be with his wife.
