Steven Souza (hip) hit and ran the bases Tuesday.

Michael Fulmer will start Friday against the Rays.

Fulmer hasn't pitched since last Wednesday when he gave up one run in 4 1/3 innings against the Mariners, so he'll be going a full eight days between starts. The Tigers are trying to keep his workload in check and will continue to look for ways to give him breaks. Fulmer has thrown 79 innings this season between the majors and the minors. He threw 124 2/3 innings (his highest workload as a professional) last year in the minors.
