TIGERS 3B BRANDON INGE: "I’m approaching full strength [after double off-
season knee surgery]...Playing has been the easiest step in the rehab. I’m still
stiff after games. But halfway through the season, things will be back to normal.
I still have to build my quads up some...The right one has been harder to recover
from, and the left knee was the bad one...I’m 100 percent hitting without a doubt."
The Tigers will host Washington Tuesday in Detroit's only night game in Lakeland (6:05p/ET)
this spring. RHP Max Scherzer will start for the Tigers in his first "A" game action in almost two
weeks. Scott Olsen is the scheduled Nationals starter.
