Octavio Dotel is available to pitch.

Dotel was available Tuesday night in a 6-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners, manager Jim Leyland said following the game. But Leyland said he is looking for the right spot to get his veteran right-hander back on the mound.

"He's ready to pitch," Leyland said. "I'll be getting him in there soon. I didn't really prefer to put him in this game at this time. … I want to get him back out there in a game where there's not quite as much pressure, not because he can't handle pressure, just because he hasn't been out there for a while. I want to make sure he's all right."
