It’s a young life, but still. From John Low of the Detroit Free Press:

But it must be reported that right-handed reliever Bruce Rondon has arrived in Tigers spring training clearly having lost a significant amount of weight since the end of last season. How much? There’s no official word, at least yet, but he has dropped a lot more than 10 pounds. Maybe 20 or 30.

Legitimately curious to see if he can still hit 100 on the Juggs gun now that he’s lost some of that mass.

    More importantly, if he can control that 100 MPH fastball, and throw strikes. But it’s good to read BASEBALL stories, and not the usal PED stuff.

    The pictures of Joba make me want to kill myself. Flat brim AND your shirt tucked in to elastic waist athletic shorts??!!!??? Why, why does Nathan wear dark crew socks pulled up? Dork Kelly looks like the student in student-athlete. OMG, OMG, OMG.

    And, trust me, you want to see Verlander in his grandpa’s golf outfit.

      Oh, and apparently Beautiful Brad is trying to lose the pretty boy image by effectively looking like he’s never worn a ballcap ever.

      Sorry, Prince can’t come to the phone right now, he found the all-you-can-eat barbecue chickenwing buffet. Can we take a message

        People in Billy Butler houses should not throw stones.

        So is that a no on the message?

    I don’t care about his waistline, is his elbow in the best shape of its life?

    What’s with the Prince heartache? Did he come close to producing what he earned?
