DETROIT — Justin Verlander threw a 45-pitch bullpen session before Detroit's game against Milwaukee on Monday.

The right-hander says he'd likely need a simulated game and at least one rehab start before taking the mound in a game for the Tigers. Manager Brad Ausmus says Verlander will probably throw another bullpen before participating in any sort of simulated game.

Verlander has not pitched this season because of a strained right triceps.

Reliever Bruce Rondon, who hasn't appeared in a game for the Tigers since 2013, threw 25 pitches Monday. He missed last season because of an elbow injury, and the right-hander has been dealing with tendinitis recently.
