Jose Valverde threw another shutout inning in the Florida State League on Saturday night.

Where his next inning will come is not his call, the Tigers' former closer said.

"I don't know yet," he said. "I'm doing my job already. I have to wait for tomorrow to check what happens. My agent just gave me the deal. My job is to pitch."

Valverde needed only eight pitches to get three outs against the Dunedin Blue Jays. This was a night after a 12-pitch shutout inning in his first appearance since signing a minor league contract with the Tigers on April 4.

A major league scout said the 35-year-old Valverde looked "a tick slower" than Friday night but that his control was better.

"It's like spring training for me right now," he said. "Back to back. I think I'm where I need to be. That's what everybody wanted -- the GM, the owner, my guys in the big leagues and myself."

Saturday night's inning wasn't quite as easy it may have looked. Throwing all fastballs, Valverde walked K.C. Hobson on four pitches, then gave up a line drive to Marcus Knecht that was run down by rightfielder Jeff McVaney of the Lakeland Flying Tigers. Valverde said he thought it was a double.
