Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera suffered an embarrassing mishap during Thursday's game when he tripped over the bag at third base. However, it could have been much worse as Cabrera nearly twisted his ankle on the play.
It happened in the fourth inning with Cabrera on second and Victor Martinez on first with one out. Cabrera...
Alex Avila was taken to a Cleveland-area hospital for tests after suffering a possible concussion in Thursday's win over Cleveland.
Avila was hit in the mask by a foul tip in the fourth inning, but shook it off. Later in the inning, he was checked by trainer Kevin Rand, and appeared to be bleeding slightly from the ear, but he finished the inning. Avila, though, was replaced...
It's been a case of one step forward, two steps back for Tigers second baseman Omar Infante.
Infante, who has been on the 15-day disabled list since July 9, retroactive to July 4, was injured in Toronto when Colby Rasmus slid into his left ankle at second base.
The Tigers originally hoped Infante would be ready after the All-Star break but his ankle did not progress as they...
There has been one question burning inside of Tigers fans all year. “Where in the world is our bullpen?”
Well, amidst the Tigers’ recent 12-game winning streak, that bullpen is starting to emerge. With an old gem at the forefront. Jeremy Bonderman.
How long has it been since you heard that name with any sort of a good connotation around it? (Sept. 2010, to be exact).
Jhonny Peralta's 50-game suspension was hardly a surprise, as it was more of a case of when than if it would happen. As such, the Detroit Tigers had time to prepare, and they took advantage of that opportunity by acquiring young shortstop Jose Iglesias from the Boston Red Sox in a recent three-team trade. While at one point it appeared to be a near sure bet that Peralta would...
Some storybook endings aren’t even endings.
The earlier and more dramatic finish on Wednesday night between the Tigers and Indians would have been for Miguel Cabrera’s monstrous home run in the eighth off rookie Danny Salazar to hold on as the winning hit.
Big star refusing to strike out for a fourth time against an impressive kid? It had everything.
Know what though?
Detroit catcher Alex Avila is out of the starting lineup, a day after he was hit in the mask by a foul ball and forced to leave a game.
Backup catcher Brayan Pena started Friday night at Yankee Stadium against New York.
Tigers Jim Leyland said Avila got medical clearance to play. Avila said he was available if needed as the AL Central leaders tried to extend their 12-game winning...
Detroit catcher Alex Avila has been taken to a hospital and is being tested for a possible concussion after leaving the Tigers' game against Cleveland on Thursday.
Avila was struck in the mask when Nick Swisher fouled off a pitch in the fourth inning. He appeared to be bleeding from his left ear but remained in the game after being treated by a team trainer. Avila was removed...

MLB pitchers haven't found a way to slow down Miguel Cabrera... but lifeless squares on a baseball diamond? That's another story. The reigning Triple Crown winner and AL MVP lost this battle with third base at Progressive Field last night in a Tigers victory over the Indians. After biting the dust, Cabrera (ever the showman...
1) Its really amazing how low Chris Perezs stature has dropped in the eyes of Cleveland fandom. Perez is arguably one of the best closers in team history, but when he makes a mistake and blows a game fans are ready to pounce on him like a cobra attacks its prey. Perez brings a good part of it on himself, of course, but its rare he is congratulated or cheered when he succeeds -- and...
The Detroit Tigers won their 12th straight game and Max Scherzer became baseball’s first 17-game winner besting the Cleveland Indians 10-3.
Scherzer (17-1) allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings. Scherzer threw 100 pitches, and left with a 2.84 ERA this year.
The Tigers have won 12 in a row for the first time since Sept. 2-14, 2011.
Miguel Cabrera drove in three...
Prince Fielder hit a two-run double in the 14th inning as the Detroit Tigers won their 11th straight, 6-5 on Wednesday night over the Cleveland Indians, who fell six games out of first place in the AL Central and maybe left rookie Danny Salazar in for one too many pitches.
After the Tigers put two on against Bryan Shaw (2-3), Fielder lined his double off Marc Rzepczynski into the...
On Monday afternoon I had the opportunity to talk Detroit Tigers on The Drive With Jack Ebling radio show, 730 a.m. out of Lansing. We discussed the Jhonny Peralta suspension and its impact on the team as well as the A-Rod situation.

Prince Fielder picks up where Anthony Rizzo left off and gets hit by a pitch while striking out.
Twice in a week, so maybe they’re trying to start a trend.
The game of baseball makes you scratch your head sometimes. When I was growing up, the Indians had a player named Pat Tabler. He was never anything sensational. A nice player who hit for average for six seasons. While Pat is one of many of the guys who played on the forgettable teams in the mid to late 80′s that never came even close to winning anything, if you say the name Pat...
