Stay current with all the roster movement and personnel decisions with the TigsTown Transaction Blog. The Tigers on Tuesday brought Darin Downs back to the big league club, but arguably of more importance, they announced that shortstop Jhonny Peralta will return to the club and begin working out this week.
BEST OF MAXIM
Jhonny Peralta's Tigers career isn't over quite yet.
Tigers president Dave Dombrowski announced Tuesday that Peralta will rejoin the team Wednesday to begin working out. Dombrowski said that no decision has been made about activating him when his suspension ends in the final week of the regular season, but the door is now open for Peralta to take part in the postseason....
Jhonny Peralta rejoined the team and took some balls in left field before Wednesday's game.
Peralta, suspended 50 games for his connection to the Biogenesis clinic, did talk to the media.
"What happened before, I'm angry with myself," Peralta told reporters in Chicago. "I don't know how to explain it, the situation that happened, but I'm kind of mad...
Detroit Tigers: 83-62, 1st Place (6.0 ahead of Cleveland).
Well, if the Tigers are going to insist on playing the feast-or-famine game on offense, we might as well enjoy the feast, right? Great games by Fielder, Martinez, Avila, and Iglesias. Cabrera concerns me: he did hit 3 fairly deep, but he just doesn’t seem to have the power to get it out of the ballpark right now (you...
Tuesday night club announced that suspended shortstop Jhonny Peralta would work out with the team prior to their series finale with the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.
Here’s the official statement from the Tigers:
“In accordance with the protocols outlined by Major League Baseball’s collective bargaining agreement, Jhonny Peralta will join the club for workouts in Chicago...
Everything was fine until three batters into the game.
Or until the third pitch to the third batter.
At that point the continuation of a Tigers trip which hasn’t exactly been their best got worse got angrier maybe even got a little worrisome with a 5-1 loss Monday night to the White Sox.
And with the early ejection of Miguel Cabrera.
The loss trimmed the Tigers’ lead over...
Anibal Sanchez struck out 10 in a terrific performance, helping the Detroit Tigers top the Chicago White Sox 1-0 on Wednesday night.
Sanchez (14-7) allowed five hits and walked four in 7 1-3 innings while lowering his AL-best ERA to 2.50. Joaquin Benoit got three outs for his 18th save in 18 opportunities, completing a five-hitter for Detroit's 11th shutout of the season.
It was a unique sight in Chicago when Tigers superstar Miguel Cabrera was tossed during his first at-bat as the Tigers took on the White Sox.
The ejection came in just the first inning of the matchup when, in the second pitch of his at-bat, Miggy was hit on the knee by a wild pitch from Chris Sale. Home plate umpire Brian Gorman ruled that Cabrera had swung on the pitch and called...
Rick Porcello pitched his first career complete game, Prince Fielder homered among his four hits and the Detroit Tigers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 9-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.
Alex Avila added four hits and two RBIs as AL Central-leading Detroit's offense finally got rolling against the sloppy White Sox, allowing the Tigers to increase...
The Detroit Tigers will open the 2014 season on March 31 with a three-game series against the Kansas City Royals at Comerica Park. The season will conclude with a six-game homestand against the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins.
Schedule highlights include an Interleague home series against the Colorado Rockies Aug. 1-3, a three-game series against the New York Yankees Aug....
Your browser does not support iframes. Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera saw his night end almost before it began in a loss to the Chicago White Sox on Monday night after he was ejected in the first inning. Chicago pitcher Chris Sale threw a slider that hit Cabrera on the leg, but home plate umpire […]
CHICAGO (AP) -- Chris Sale outpitched Max Scherzer, denying him 20 wins, and Miguel Cabrera was ejected in the first inning as the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 5-1 on Monday night.
Sale (11-12) gave up one run and four hits in eight innings to win for the fifth time in six decisions.
Scherzer (19-3) gave up five runs and six hits in four innings as he lost consecutive...
At this time of year it doesn’t matter if it was a close game or a rout.
A snoozer or absolutely riveting.
All that matters is this: Did the Tigers get closer to clinching the American League Central?
And when they know that the team closest to them already has lost — as the Cleveland Indians did in a day game to Kansas City 6-2 — the bottom-line question begs even louder...
The Kansas City Royals might not catch the first-place Detroit Tigers in the AL Central, but they remain a postseason contender.
Looking to continue their season-long success against Justin Verlander, the surging Royals try for a third consecutive victory overall and against the Tigers on Friday night at Comerica Park.
Kansas City (77-69) has not been to the playoffs since winning...
There were a lot of people who weren't sold on the Tigers re-signing Anibal Sanchez in the offseason.
The critics thought that paying Sanchez 80 million over five years was too much.
Those same people are probably rethinking that opinion.
Sanchez, 29, won his career-best 14th game and career-best seventh straight decision with a 1-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday...
