Alburquerque has resumed throwing, and he could be able to return to active duty around the All-Star break.

–C Alex Avila hasn’t been the consistently hot hitter he was a year ago, but Tuesday night he hit a big two-run home run. The blast into the ivy beyond the center field fence brought the Tigers to within a run of the Mariners at 4-3.
