News: Putkonen (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at Low-A West Michigan on Thursday, James Schmehl of reports. Impact: With a couple clean performances with West Michigan, Putknonen could put himself on track for an activation on Sept. 1, when rosters expand. Even in Detroit's leaky bullpen, Petkonen isn't expected to see many high-leverage innings down the stretch.(RotoWire, )

Impact: GM Dave Dombrowski admitted Friday that he wasn't expecting Putkonen to return this season, but he's now optimistic given the right-hander's recent progress. Putkonen, who has been on the DL since Apr. 19, has been rehabbing at High-A Lakeland and may return to a middle-relief role by early-to-mid September.(RotoWire, )

News: Putkonen (elbow) threw a 30-pitch bullpen Wednesday and has been progressing well with High-A Lakeland, MLive's James Schmehl reports. Impact: It's nice to hear he's progressing well, and although it's certainly possible he rejoins the Tigers' bullpen in September, he won't be of much fantasy use.(RotoWire, )
