Valverde Logs Second Hitless Appearance in Minors
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Jose Valverde's second appearance in as many days for Class A Lakeland went almost exactly like his first. He tossed a hitless sixth inning for the Flying Tigers on Saturday, erasing a leadoff walk with a ground-ball double play. Now the Tigers have to decide on Valverde's next step in his quest to win back a job in their bullpen. The expectation is that Valverde will progress in the farm system and pitch at least a couple of outings for Triple-A Toledo, allowing him to face more veteran hitters and work in some actual save situations.
