Phil Coke served as Detroit’s closer last October.

The lefty might not be available for this year’s run.

From Jason Beck of comes word that Coke felt renewed discomfort in his left elbow after a throwing session on Monday and headed back to Motown from Minneapolis on Tuesday to undergo an MRI. The situation does not sound promising.

“Today it was tight and sore,” Coke told on Tuesday night. “And before I threw yesterday, I didn’t feel anything. … I’m incredibly disappointed right now just because the way it’s been going. I feel like I’m letting everybody down. I don’t deal well with being in this current position.”

Coke, 31, has a rough 5.40 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 38 1/3 innings of relief this season.

It doesn’t sound like he’ll be making another appearance.

    The Tigers will be fortunate if Coke is NOT available for the post-season. He’s not close to one of their 25 best players right now.

    If Phil was a drug dealer, he’d have the perfect name

    Coke should wear number 0. His agent is missing out on a big endorsement deal. Too bad Pepsi has the concession rights at Comerica.
