Spring Training is a time for all ball players to work out the kinks and get ready for the start of the regular season. One thing they shouldn’t have to work on is dressing themselves…
Sanchez gave up four runs on four hits and a walk in four innings. He was 8-5 with a 3.43 ERA last year.
Pineda struck out four, including three in the second inning, and walked one. He retired eight in a row before walking and then picking Andrew Romine off first base.
The left-hander was traded with Miguel Cabrera to Detroit after the 2007 season. Willis has been with seven other major league organizations since then.
Justin Verlander threw two shutout innings in his spring debut as the Detroit Tigers roughed up Shelby Miller and topped the Atlanta Braves’ split squad.
With individual game tickets going on sale Saturday — including those for Opening Day — hundreds of Tigers fans showed up at Comerica Park to pick up a wristband and the chance to be first in line in the morning.
Tigers starter David Price threw two hitless innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit Daniel Murphy on the right hand with a fastball.
As planned, Iglesias played one inning. He caught a popup in the top of the first and grounded out in the bottom half.
Perry hasn’t pitched in the major leagues since 2012, when he appeared in seven games for the Washington Nationals. He pitched for the Tigers from 2009-11.
Manager Paul Molitor said Monday that Hughes has been “penciled in” to take the mound on April 6 when the Twins play at Detroit.
