If you were to ask the common Detroit Tigers fan to name 3 active members of the Detroit Tigers bullpen, do you think they could do it? I don’t. They’d probably say Phil Coke, maybe Joaquin Benoit, and if they’re really locked in, perhaps Drew Smyly.
Thank goodness for Drew Smyly
What a difference a few months can make. The Tigers broke camp with what was supposed to be a veteran...
NICE TO MEET YOU
Your browser does not support iframes.Some baseball fans would consider Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander to be larger than life.After all, the man did win both the American League Cy Young Award and MVP Award in the same season in 2011, a feat that hadn't been accomplished by a pitcher since Dennis Eckersley did so in 1992.On Saturday, Verlander may have met his match, though...
Back Hand Web Gem. Victor Martinez channelling his inner Chris Paul flips a beauty to Drew Smyly to get the speedy Jacoby Ellsbury.
The post Detroit Tigers’ Victor Martinez With The No Look Flip appeared first on Baseball Hot Corner.
After a strong start to the season, Tigers ace Justin Verlander has struggled over the better part of two months as his ERA has gone up to 3.90 after today with a WHIP of 1.38 in 97 innings pitched. So with that said there’s probably a good possibility that Verlander isn’t even invited to this year’s All-Star Game in New York City.
However, if Verlander is invited (which is...
Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez is showing hope that he could be ready to pitch when he's eligible to come off the disabled list on July 1st. At this point, though, the Tigers are remaining cautiously optimistic about their injured right-hander, who is working his way back from a shoulder strain.
And according to MLB.com Tigers beat writer Jason Beck, Sanchez is eyeing a return...
Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez has made a few appearances at first base this season and you can see why. This play he made to get Jacoby Ellsbury out was absolutely outstanding and is a must-see. He knocked down Ellsbury’s hit, then dove out to grab the ball and then flipped a no-look toss to Drew Smyly for the out.
A nice extended weekend for the Detroit Tigers, as they took three of four games from the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox. And we’ve got the Tigers’ grades for the final three games in that set — a loss Friday and wins Saturday and Sunday.
1. Austin Jackson: A. The Tigers’ center fielder took Friday night off, then came back to spark wins on Saturday and Sunday...
There are as many theories about what's wrong with Justin Verlander as there are Tigers fans.
Has he been spoiled by his huge contract? Is he somehow distracted by whatever (if anything) happened with Kate Upton? Is he pitching through an injury? Did Taco Bell change their recipe? Has he been done in by Detroit's defense? Or, maybe, has he just been incredibly unlucky this...
Torii Hunter hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning after two Boston errors helped load the bases, and Prince Fielder added a two-run single to help the Detroit Tigers to a sloppy 7-5 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday.
Justin Verlander struggled, and Detroit trailed 4-3 in the seventh before Andrew Miller (0-2) hit Jhonny Peralta with a pitch with the bases loaded...
Daniel Nava was burned by a controversial call late in the Detroit Tigers’ 7-5 win over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. The two teams were tied at four in the bottom of the eighth inning, when Detroit’s Avisail Garcia lifted a flyball to the warning track in right. Nava drifted back, then appeared to make a basket catch, before dropping the ball as he readied to throw it back into...
It wasn’t the most graceful play of the MLB season, but it was impressive nonetheless — especially for a former catcher.
Victor Martinez, playing first base, knocked down a scorching grounder off the bat of Jacoby Ellsbury with a diving stop. He got to his feet, barehanded the baseball, dove forward and flipped the ball back to pitcher Drew Smyly for the out.
Ellsbury gave his...
According to MLB.com’s Jason Beck (via MLBTradeRumors.com), the Tigers had a scout at this weekend’s Giants/Marlins game as Detroit is said to have an interest in Miami relievers Steve Cishek and Ryan Webb.
The Tigers had a scout at this weekend’s Marlins-Giants series at San Francisco. Detroit has been rumored to have interest in Miami relievers who could hit the trade market...
Rod says, "Look out, Victor" but he didn't look. He blindly flipped a perfect ball to Drew Smyly who was covering first for the out. The feeling that the Tigers were going to come back and win this game, for me, came on this play. Too special. Looooook out. But don't look out. You know.
