Luke Putkonen may be cleared to pitch this season

Tigers long reliever Luke Putkonen still has a chance to be ready to pitch by season's end, according to head athletic trainer Kevin Rand. "He's throwing with that in mind," Rand said of Putkonen, out since mid-April with right elbow inflammation. Putkonen threw off a mound for the first time in his rehab process Friday, delivering a 25-pitch bullpen session that included only fastballs. (Detroit Tigers)
