When Doug Fister broke into the big leagues, he was a soft-tossing, pitch-to-contact change-up artist, who threw strikes with mediocre stuff and projected as a back-of-the-rotation innings eater or a bullpen guy. He wasn’t bad, but the lack of a quality breaking ball and his reliance on his chan...
BEST OF MAXIM
Miguel Cabrera is having an outstanding season for the Tigers. It’s the type of season we have come to expect from the 29-year-old over his 13-year career. Cabrera has 29 homers to go along with 95 RBI. His batting average is an impressive .322 and his on-base percentage is a solid .384. There is still a lot of baseball left to be played, but Cabrera is a definite American League...
Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland has a good problem: too many good choices to play the outfield and be the designated hitter. The acquisition of Jeff Baker from the Cubs and return of Andy Dirks from the disabled list gives Detroit six players from whom to choose daily for those four spots. "I told them, 'I can play four of the six every day, but I can't play all...
Detroit Tigers, 60-51, 2nd place, .5 back.
Too many runs. Too many runs finally ended the Tiger win streak last night, although the bats kept going and kept them in the game.
There were some things to like about last night: the offense plated 8 runs, Jeff Baker’s Detroit debut was a success (“looks like he knows what the bat is for,” said Leyland), Dirks and Boesch continue...
We all know Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera is one of the best hitters in baseball, but during Thursday's game against the New York Yankees he proved he has the "ups" to make it in the NBA.
Cabrera, batting in the bottom of the 1st inning, took a 0-2 pitch high from Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda. The ball deflected off the top of catcher Chris Stewart's glove...
As the Detroit Tigers picked up a big Friday night win deep in the heart of Texas, here’s the latest news and information from around the web for August 11. The Tigers earned a big series opening win in Texas … Continue reading →
An older man who attended Friday night's Texas Rangers game in Arlington may have stepped over the line when he forcefully pulled Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera's bat out of a younger fan's hand after it went flying into the stands.
It happened in the top of the sixth inning as Cabrera swung at the first pitch and the bat went flying into the stands on the third...
DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers fans were stunned on December 9, 2009, when fan favorite Curtis Granderson was traded to the New York Yankees.
Nearly three years later, with the Tigers wrapping up their regular-season series with the Yankees, it's a chance to look back and see how the three teams involved in the deal did.
The Yankees sent Austin Jackson, Phil Coke and Ian Kennedy...
Austin Jackson hit an inside-the-park home run and a triple and the Detroit Tigers beat the AL West-leading Texas Rangers 6-2 on Friday night.
Jackson got his first career inside-the-park homer in the seventh inning after right fielder Nelson Cruz made a diving attempt to catch the ball, which bounced in front of him and then over his glove and to the wall. Jackson never slowed...
Anibal Sanchez and the Detroit Tigers dug themselves an early hole that they simply couldn’t dig themselves out of as they dropped a 12-8 decision to the New York Yankees Wednesday night ending their winning streak at six games.
Sanchez, who was making his third start for Detroit since coming over from the Marlins simply wasn’t sharp, in fact he was downright awful allowing seven...
Austin Jackson’s inside the park home run helped the Tigers defeat the Texas Rangers 6-2 Friday night ending a two game skid.
Jackson’s first career inside the park homer run (and first for the Tigers since 1977) came when Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz missed a diving catch in the 7th that rolled all the way to the wall.
The Jackson home run was the caper of six unanswered runs...
Early last offseason before Victor Martinez blew out his knee, the Tigers had a big glaring hole at third base named Brandon Inge. One of the free agents that they could, and should, have made a run at was Aramis Ramirez from the Cubs who instead ended up in Milwaukee hitting behind Ryan Braun.
Ramirez signed a three-year deal with the Brewers for $36 million with a mutual option...
