No timetable for Joakim Soria’s return to the Tigers

9 Comments

Jason Beck of MLB.com reports that the Tigers do not have a timetable yet for reliever Joakim Soria’s return from the disabled list for a strained oblique muscle.

Soria has been out since August 10, so he’s already eligible to return, but most oblique strains tend to take at least 3-4 weeks and some linger for six weeks or more.

According to Beck he has been doing some throwing from flat ground and as a reliever there’s not much arm strength to build back up, so Soria might not be that far away. He made just six appearances for the Tigers after being acquired from the Rangers in July.
