Quick hits

• The Tigers announced they sold out available single-game tickets for Opening Day within 25 minutes after they went on sale Saturday morning. Tickets for the March 31 opener against the Royals are still available to fans who purchase a season-ticket package of 20 games or more.

• Verlander will throw a bullpen session on Sunday morning in Lakeland, after which Ausmus hopes to determine whether and when he'll pitch in a game this coming week.

• Don't read into Rondon pitching in the ninth inning, Ausmus said, even though he has done so twice so far. Rondon hit 95-96 on one scout's radar gun on his way to finishing out Saturday's 5-1 win over the Astros.
