Tigers | Won't overuse Al Alburquerque

Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland is careful not to overwork RP Al Alburquerque down the stretch. Alburquerque and RP Brayan Villarreal are not available in relief Monday, Sept. 24, after both relievers threw Sunday, Sept. 23. Alburquerque has a 0.00 ERA in his last five appearances, and he's allowed three hits and five walks while striking out 12 in 9 1/3 innings over that time. "He did terrific, there's no question about that," Leyland said. "The thing with Alburquerque is, for the rest of this season and spring training…. Let him continue to get back where he can settle in where you're not worried about him getting hurt. It doesn't mean he won't, but at least you feel more comfortable with it."
