Worth noting

Joel Hanrahan continues to throw off a mound at the Tigers' Spring Training complex in Lakeland, Fla., but is not scheduled to face hitters yet.

"He's thrown bullpens the last two weeks. They've gotten incrementally a little bit better, but not to where [he can take the next step]," Rand said Friday.

Hanrahan threw 40 pitches off the mound Friday, Rand said.

While neither the Tigers nor Hanrahan put a timetable on his return from Tommy John surgery when he signed at the beginning of May, his rehab has by all accounts gone slower than expected. Part of the extra time has been spent rebuilding arm strength.
