Inside spring training camp:

Bonderman start scratched: Jeremy Bonderman will not pitch in Saturday's game against the New York Mets in Lakeland as previously scheduled. Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Bonderman instead would throw a pair of simulated, 15-pitch innings to get his work in. "There's no red flags here," Leyland said, noting he is cautious with Bonderman and pitchers Joel Zumaya and Macay McBride because they are coming off surgeries. Leyland said that when Bonderman told him he had stiffness in his right shoulder, it was "common sense" to make this decision.

Kibler gets nod: Jon Kibler, a nonroster camp invitee who pitched at Michigan State, will start Saturday against the Mets. Kibler, a left-hander, was 14-5 with a 1.75 ERA at Class A West Michigan.
