Detroit Tigers Recall Pitcher Jose Ortega, Lose 3 Others

The Detroit Tigers have recalled right handed pitcher Jose Ortega who fills the spot on the active roster with Phil Coke going on the disabled list due to a left groin strain. In other moves, the Tigers also optioned pitcher Bruce Rondon to Triple-A Toledo and activated outfielder Avisail Garcia from the disabled list then optioned him to Toledo as well.   The post Detroit Tigers...

TDSS Tigers Recap, Game 29: Miguel Cabrera Homers Twice, Collects 6 RBI in 17-2 Win

We’re only in the first days of May, but Miguel Cabrera appears primed for a run at another Triple Crown. The Detroit Tigers’ superstar third baseman went 4-for-4 with two homers and six RBI in a 17-2, Saturday night rout of the Houston Astros. With that effort, Cabrera boosted his average to a league-leading .390, took over the top spot in the RBI race with 36 and bumped his...

TDSS Tigers Recap, Game 27: Don Kelly Saves the Day in Extra Innings

The Detroit Tigers badly needed a clutch hit Thursday night, and they finally got it from the unlikeliest of sources. Don Kelly delivered the eventual game-winning RBI single in the top of the 14th, staking the Tigers to a 4-3 lead on the host Houston Astros. Matt Tuiasosopo then piled on with a two-run double and Jhonny Peralta added a sac fly to give Detroit its 7-3 victory. Luke...

Game 2013.29: Tigers at Astros

Again it didn’t come easy, but the Tigers are right where they wanted to be, taking the first two games of the four-game series with the struggling Astros, thanks partly to contributions by the slumping Alex Avila and by everyone’s favorite bench donkey, Don Kelly (his working a 1-2 count into a walk ahead of Avila’s home run was one of the subtle plays of the game). Tonight...

Tigers 7, Astros 3(14)

When Detroit's Don Kelly watched Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder take consecutive intentional walks to load the bases in the 14th inning, he wasn't surprised. He also knew it set up a great chance for him to end this marathon game. Kelly took advantage of it, singling in the go-ahead run to start a four-run 14th inning and the Tigers beat the Houston Astros 7-3 Thursday...

Detroit Tigers talk with Joe White and Jack Ebling

On Thursday afternoon I talked Detroit Tigers on The Drive With Jack Ebling Show. Our main topic of discussion was the polarizing play of Alex Avila. He has hit two homers this week, including the go-ahead 2-run blast in Friday night’s win, but should we expect good things from him? Have a listen:

Miggy plates 6, Tigers crush Astros

Miguel Cabrera hit two home runs and tied a career with six RBI to lead the Detroit Tigers' 17-2 mauling of the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Max Scherzer (4-0) won his fourth in a row to begin the season, allowing one run on three hits and striking out eight in eight innings. Detroit has won its first three games against Houston and has won eight of its last nine. Scherzer...

Avila's Offensive Struggles Cause for Concern

While some Tigers have had hot starts, and some slow starts, arguably no start to the season has been more scrutinized than the production of Alex Avila at the plate, and his continued struggles after his All-Star 2011 season. Just what should we make of Avila’s start, and is this an ominous sign of future production?

Rick Ankiel Still Has a Cannon For An Arm

The Detroit Tigers got tired on Thursday night, and when that happens teams make mistakes. The mistake the Tigers made was trying to score on a Rick Ankiel’s arm. Check out Rick Ankiel’s laser throw from right field in the top of the 11th which cut down the go-ahead run at the plate. Just another case of Rick being Rick. The Tigers still went on to win in 14 innings by a...

Avila blast lifts Tigers over Astros, 4-3

The smiles told the story. When Tigers catcher Alex Avila stroked the two-run, ninth-inning homer that would make his team a 4-3 winner Friday night over the Astros in Houston, he raised his fist rounding first base and smiled. It was a look of both pure joy and relief. April was a difficult month for Avila. He batted .183 and had to hold his head up while walking back to the dugout...

Tigers 4, Astros 3

Alex Avila hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning, lifting the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 win over the Houston Astros on Friday night. After Houston closer Jose Veras walked Don Kelly to open the inning, Avila hit a 3-1 pitch to deep center field and help the Tigers get their second straight win. Jose Altuve's RBI single in the seventh inning capped a three-run rally and gave...
