Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander has been given the go-ahead to resume throwing.
Verlander has been sidelined since the start of the season because of a strained right triceps.
"This is a first step," Manager Brad Ausmus said.
Verlander made about 50 throws in the outfield before Detroit's game against the White Sox. He told Ausmus and pitching coach Jeff Jones that he felt fine afterward.
Ausmus said the Tigers don't have a timetable for a possible return for Verlander, who won't throw off a mound for a while. Ausmus said Verlander will be able to throw and play catch on a daily or every-other-day basis, depending on how he feels.
White Sox designate
Right-hander Javy Guerra has been designated for assignment by the White Sox.
Guerra didn't give up a run in three games and 1 1/3 innings for the White Sox. He went on the disabled list April 20 because of a right shoulder inflammation.
He had a 17.18 earned-run average in four games during an injury rehabilitation assigned at triple-A Charlotte.
