Found May 30, 2012 on
The Detroit Tigers have placed starting pitcher Doug Fister on the disabled list today with a side strain. Fister aggravated the same injury that caused him to miss a month of the season in April and May.
This is concerning news for Fister owners and Tigers fans, as Fister may be sidelined for some time to allow his oblique to heal. Fister was primed for a solid season as the number two starter behind Justin Verlander, however, his lingering side injury has limited him to an 0-3 record on the season, with a 3.15 ERA in just six appearances.
His last start was his worst outing of the season, as he gave up 11 hits and six earned runs against the Red Sox.

The Tigers got a rare dose of good news Thursday afternoon.
In a season where simply getting over .500 has seemed like a Herculean task, the Tigers found out that No. 2 starter Doug Fister does not have a serious injury to his rib-cage cartilage, and should miss a shorter period of time than he did when he was out from April 7 to May 7 with the same injury.
That's a relief...
Detroit Tigers right-hander Doug Fister returned to the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 29, with a strained muscle in his left side. Fister spent time on the DL with the same injury in April. The Tigers will recall Casey Crosby on Friday to start against the New York Yankees. Fister has started six games this season, posting a 3.15 ERA in 34 1/3 innings.

Alex Avila left Thursday Night’s game against the Red Sox early after taking a foul ball off his mask. Avila was noticeably shaken, and he suffered a sizable cut on his nose that gushed blood down his face.
The severity of the injury is not known at this time, however, it is possible that Avila may be the latest player to utilize the new seven-day DL for concussion related injuries...
Former Tigers and White Sox outfielder Magglio Ordonez will be retiring on Sunday, during "Magglio Ordonez Day" at Comerica Park when the Tigers host the Yankees.

Unless the profile picture of Detroit Tigers center fielder Quintin Berry on Yahoo! Sports is a sideways picture of Berry with his head cut off, this should probably be fixed:
As of this writing, Berry's profile still shows this picture. So what gives?

Justin Verlander is a no-hit pitcher. But he's also a no-hit hitter. It's like he's pitching to himself almost. In his career during interleague play, Verlander is 0-for-20 with 13 strikeouts and his seven other outs weren't exactly results of bad luck.
But Verlander is trying to change that. It's no secret around Detroit that he desperately wants to get his first...
Detroit manager Jim Leyland wasn't a happy man after the Tigers fell to the Red Sox on Monday. And for good reason. One blown call in the second inning seemed to change the entire complexion of the game, turning the tide in Boston's favor for the rest of the tilt. Mike Aviles appeared to swing and miss at a pitch with a runner on second and two outs. Tigers catcher Gerald...

Do not miss a call in front of Jim Leyland...

Jim Leyland was thrown out of his third game of the month, and retreated to the clubhouse Monday afternoon to watch replays that confirmed what his eyes had told him minutes earlier. The tipped foul by Red Sox shortstop Mike Aviles had been caught cleanly by Tigers catcher Gerald Laird, and should have been the third out.
Memorial Day- The weather couldn’t have been more perfect yesterday on Memorial Day for a day baseball game. The sox took advantage of a missed umpire call yesterday and had a 2 out rally to put them on top early in the game and never looked back. Mike Aviles was given a second opportunity after the home plate umpire ruled strike 3 a foul ball and that catcher Gerald Laird didn’t...
