The Detroit Tigers have hinted that midseason acquisition Delmon Young could be their starting left fielder in 2012. Is that vague enough for you?
A month ago, it seemed to be all but a lock that the Tigers would bring back the arbitration eligible Young on a 1-year deal to see what he could do hitting in front of Miguel Cabrera for 150 games. So, what’s changed?
A 26-year old...
In previous posts, I used Pitching Runs Saved (PRS) to evaluate pitchers. To review, PRS is designed to isolate pitching performance from fielding support and ballpark factors. It is calculated by substracting ballpark runs (BPR) and fielding runs saved (FRS) from runs allowed above average (RAA). Tigers ace Justin Verlander had 60.8 PRS in 2011 which means that he saved the Tigers an
If you had to point to one game that separated Justin Verlander from the rest of the American League Cy Young contenders, look no further than July 31.
That day, Verlander squared off against Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver, younger brother of former Tigers' first-round draft pick Jeff Weaver.
Weaver came into the game with a better ERA than Verlander, and the two were...
The Tigers didn't have an everyday second baseman, or even a most days second baseman in 2011. But among the musical chairs, it was Ramon Santiago that received the most time at the keystone.
Sources close to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports report that the Detroit TIgers are interested in Atlanta Braves' Martin Prado. It's possible that the team could trade left fielder Delmon Young for the right second baseman, but it's not know whether the Braves have interest in acquiring Young.

Justin Verlander should be a unanimous selection on Tuesday when the American League Cy Young Award winner is announced by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.
There were a few notable bits of Bucs news on Friday…
The Pirates are reportedly interested in Ramon Santiago as a potential everyday shortstop, according to FoxSports.com’s Jon Morosi. Santiago, 32, isn’t exciting at all, but he’s probably better than Ronny Cedeno and wouldn’t cost much. His defense is supposedly pretty good, but he hasn’t ever played more than 85 games...
The free agent second basemen are disappearing fast. In the last few days, Jamey Carroll joined the Twins, Mark Ellis signed with the Dodgers and Aaron Hill decided to stay with the Diamond Backs. Moreover, the Pirates are in pursuit of former Tigers infielder Ramon Santiago. Still in need of a second baseman, the Tigers are looking into trades. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports...
Detroit Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont appeared to make a good impression in today’s interview for the Red Sox’ manager opening.
