I saw it too:

"Bottom 9TH B:2 S:1 O:2
Detroit Tigers pitcher Todd Jones left the game due to an injured arm."

Expect Rodney to open up the season in Detroit if Jones's injury is serious.

Jones to DL

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Todd Jones is headed to the disabled list.

Jones pulled his left hamstring with one out to go in the Tigers' final exhbition, a 4-3 win over Tampa Bay today.

The Tigers don't know yet who will be called up to take Jones' place. Fernando Rodney will likely be the closer until Jones returns.

Todd Jones hurt his left hamstring during his appearance today and is expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

"My last outing ... I felt fine," Jones said. "Today, I was fine getting loose and threw a 1-0 cutter to (Joey) Gathright and felt something pop a little bit. ... I'm hoping it's not too bad. We'll see what happens." Manager Jim Leyland didn't name an interim closer, but Fernando Rodney becomes the clear favorite for saves in Detroit.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers will open the season without closer Todd Jones.

Jones aggravated a left hamstring injury while throwing a ninth-inning pitch during Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

"I'm not one of those who say: `Oh man, what a way to end spring training.' We've got to move forward," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said.

"We're not going to have Todd Jones for 15 days. What are we supposed to do? I feel bad for Todd Jones, but I'm not going to sit here and feel sorry for myself. And if any of the other players are out there feeling sorry for themselves, they're on the wrong team."

Jones, an All-Star for the Tigers in 2000, was 1-5 with 2.10 ERA and 40 saves with the Florida Marlins last season. In December, he signed an $11 million, two-year contract to return to Detroit.

The 16-year veteran hurt his hamstring during an outing against Houston on March 21, but said he felt OK after an appearance against Cleveland on Thursday.

He retired his first two batters Saturday, then left with a 2-1 count on Joey Gathright.

"My last outing ... I felt fine," Jones said. "Today, I was fine getting loose and threw a 1-0 cutter to Gathright and felt something pop a little bit. ... I'm hoping it's not too bad. We'll see what happens."

Leyland wasn't sure who will open the season as the Tigers' closer. One possibility is right-hander Fernando Rodney.

"I don't like to make rash decisions when you have something bad like that happen," the manager said. "You're better off to just take your time, don't panic, think it out and then make a decision."

May want to pick up Joel Zumaya as well. After reading a couple quotes from Jim Leyland it sounds like Rodney is going to have a very short leash.
