DETROIT (AP) -Tigers pitcher Jeremy Bonderman might miss his start Sunday against Minnesota because of a blister on the tip of his middle finger.
Manager Jim Leyland said the right-hander was ``very questionable.'' Bonderman (2-0) experienced blisters for the first time during spring training.
``You want to get it to a point where you don't have to worry about it,'' Bonderman said. ``You don't want to keep fighting it.''
Bonderman pitched six innings Tuesday to pick up his second victory of the season. Bonderman was 14-8 with a career-high 202 strikeouts in 2006. He has a 4.20 ERA and team-best 40 strikeouts in seven starts this season.
Leyland said Bonderman's replacement would not come from the bullpen, which is down a man after right-hander Joel Zumaya went on the 15-day disabled list May 3 with a finger strain.
