• Joel Hanrahan is scheduled to resume throwing off a mound this coming week, according to Ausmus. It's expected to be an all-fastballs session. Hanrahan, who signed with the Tigers almost exactly a month ago, has spent the past couple weeks building arm strength with long tossing and other workouts.
• Austin Jackson, who had just four multi-strikeout games over the first 41 games of the season, struck out twice Sunday for the fourth time on Detroit's week-long road trip. He's 10-for-70 with 19 strikeouts over his last 19 games, and finished 2-for-24 with nine strikeouts for the trip.
