It's not clear whether Krol will be available Monday, but it sounds like this isn't a long-term concern.

Ian Krol was credit with a win after pitching a perfect inning as the Tigers beat the Marlins 3-1 on Sunday.

Krol, a product of the Doug Fister trade with the Nationals, has allowed just one hit while striking out four in four scoreless innings this spring. He'll likely be counted on as more than a lefty specialist in the Tigers pen.
