APR 12, 2013 3:29p ET
In his second appearance in Lakeland for extended spring training, Valverde threw a scoreless inning against the Braves.
Valverde walked one and struck out two.
This follows up his bullpen session on Wednesday.
He is next scheduled to throw one to two innings Monday during a scrimmage.
Valverde, 35, had 35 saves and a 3.78 ERA last year during the regular season as the Tigers closer.
But in the playoffs, Valverde lost his closer's job as he had only one save and a 30.37 ERA.
