Tigers | Al Alburquerque needs better command

Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland wants to see better command out of RP Al Alburquerque, who walked three and gave up four runs last Sunday. "Some guys need to step it up," Leyland said. "We'll find out. Performances are starting to get evaluated. It's getting late."

Fantasy Tip: With Detroit's ninth-inning duties undecided, this doesn't bode well for Alburquerque's chances to throw his hat in that ring. He gets plenty of swings and misses, but he won't be trusted by Leyland in the late innings if the walks continue to pile up.
