Lyon will pitch tomorrow, despite not being 100%

Zach Levine is telling us that Brandon Lyon will make his Spring debut tomorrow against the Tigers. But he ain't 100%.

“I still don't feel like I'm up to 100 percent strength-wise, but I'm to the point where I can start pitching, and that's just going to come with time."

I'm guessing this has as much to do with the fact that Lindstrom has looked sharp, and if Lyon doesn't get it together and start showing some things, he'll be even farther behind in the Closer race. It's going to happen at some point, where Lyon gets on the mound, and we should all keep a level head if he goes out and gets Sheets-ed.
