Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon (illness) recently became infected with the chikungunya virus, which is an illness that is transmitted to people through mosquitoes, according to general manager Al Avila. He is expected to be completely healthy by the opening of spring training camp.
Fantasy Tip: As a result of the club's offseason acquisition of Francisco Rodriguez, Rondon will no longer be counted on to close games, although he could see an occasional save opportunity here and there. The 25-year-old right-hander went 1-0 with a 5.81 ERA, 1.613 WHIP and five saves in 35 appearances last season and isn't worth monitoring outside of AL-only leagues.

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon is throwing and will begin pitching in the Venezuelan Winter League next month, according to team official Al Avila.
Fantasy Tip: Rondon finished his season in disappointing fashion, being sent home for an apparent lack of effort. Regardless, he has the best stuff of Detroit's currently back-end relievers and is best suited for the closing role entering 2016, depending on who the Tigers bring in from outside the organization. Despite rough overall numbers in 2015, Rondon should be targeted as a under-the-radar closing option later in fantasy drafts.

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon said he was not injured after the radar gun showed his velocity was down in the low-to-mid 90s during his outing Monday, Sept. 21. Rondon previously has been clocked in the 97-100 mph range.
Fantasy Tip: It's still unclear if the Tigers have sent Rondon home for the rest of the regular season or just for the short term. Regardless, fantasy owners still looking to make headway in saves should look to pick up Alex Wilson for the time being.

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon has been sent home for "effort-related reasons."
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if this is just for tonight's game or for the remainder of the regular season. Stay tuned for more details. If this is a season-ender for Rondon, run to the waiver wire to pick up Alex Wilson, who should be next in line for save chances, if you're chasing saves this late in the year.
