Our own Evan Petzold reported on August 10 that Soria, who is dealing with an oblique strain, was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
James Schmehl, who covers the Tigers for MLive Media Group, tweeted the following update on Soria.
Sounds like Joakim Soria will be able to rejoin #Tigers when he's eligible to return from DL. Said Ausmus: "He's definitely feeling better."A healthy, productive bullpen will be a key for the Tigers down the stretch if they are going to make a run at the post season.
