Mike Maroth


Maroth, who has been sidelined since May with elbow problems, made a rehab start for Triple-A Toledo. He allowed three runs _ including two homers _ in three-plus innings.


Maroth, on the 60-day disabled list, threw 45 pitches from 60 feet on Sunday morning. "They said I'd be out two to three months, and a month after (elbow) surgery, I'm throwing without pain," he said. "I would think I'm at least on the right pace."


Maroth is expected to miss 2-3 months after undergoing successful arthroscopic elbow surgery in Los Angeles on Friday. The Tigers' left-hander, who has made at least 33 starts in each of the last three seasons, had bone chips removed from his pitching elbow.


Maroth is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips from his left elbow. The Tigers left-hander felt irritation in his elbow on May 35 against the Royals in a game in which he allowed six runs and six hits in the first inning, including three consecutive home runs.


Maroth was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Tigers due to left elbow irritation. The left-hander felt the pain during the first inning of the Tigers' 13-8 win over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday, while giving up six runs and six hits, including three home runs over a 1-3 of an inning.


Maroth re-signed with Detroit Wednesday, agreeing to a $5.25 million, two-year contract. The left-handed pitcher led the Tigers with 34 starts last season and went 14-14 with a 4.74 ERA in 209 innings pitched. He is expected to receive $2.3 million this year and $2.95 million in 2007.
