Jhonny Peralta's grand slam capped an eight-run sixth inning for
Detroit, and the Tigers overcame Miguel Cabrera's ejection in a
12-4 win over the collapsing Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.
BEST OF MAXIM
There’s about to be a sigh of relief in the state of Michigan. The Tigers are starting to look like the dominant team they were supposed to be.
With less than 100 hours left until the trade deadline, the Tigers are 7-3 since the All-Star Break and sit 14 games above .500, with a three-game lead over the Cleveland Indians.
That was the big inhale for the sigh of relief. The beginning...
Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was ejected while batting with the bases loaded in the third inning of Sunday's game against Philadelphia after he appeared to say something to home plate umpire Chad Fairchild.
Manager Jim Leyland was also ejected in the ensuing argument.
Cabrera was batting with one out when he took two called strikes. He appeared to say something to...
DETROIT -- Jim Leyland doesn't usually get to manage games in late July like a spring-training exhibition.
When he got the chance on Saturday, he took full advantage.
Miguel Cabrera? In his first game back from a hip injury, he only played four innings. Of course, by that point he had a homer and three RBI.
Max Scherzer? He threw a season-low 75 pitches in six innings, only allowing...
J. Meric/Getty Images The Detroit Tigers have added an arm to their bullpen. On Monday the Tigers reached a deal with the Houston Astros for right hander Jose Veras. Veras , 32, has been one of few bright spots for the Astros this season [...]

The Phillies lost their seventh in a row.
Scherzer (15-1) threw only 75 pitches - he was one of several stars pulled early after the...

"We are pleased to add an experienced arm to our bullpen" Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said in a release. "Jose can pitch in a variety of roles provides...
The Detroit Tigers added some help for their shaky bullpen Monday, acquiring reliever Jose Veras from the Houston Astros for minor league outfielder Danry Vasquez and a player to be named.
Veras is 0-4 with a 2.93 ERA this season, and the 32-year-old right-hander has struck out 44 in 43 innings with only 14 walks.
Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski says the team is pleased...
Jose Veras has been acquired from the Houston Astros for outfield prospect Danny Vasquez and journeyman PTBNL.
I don’t know much about him, but it seems like a no risk move. I don’t expect him to close, though I do think it’s reasonable to believe that he’ll be the setup guy.
I’m afraid this means that Octavio Dotel is done for the year.
I think the Tigers are done. I think...
Dave Dombrowski, the general manager of the Detroit Tigers, found a good reliever in terms of value in Jose Veras, who they acquired from the Astros today for outfield prospect Danry Vasquez and a player to be named later.
Veras, a right-handed set-up man, will fit nicely into the Tigers back-end of the bullpen as a compliment to the left-handed Drew Smyly in front of closer...
BROOKLYN, NY - Brooklyn Cyclones outfielder Patrick Biondi was a huge Detroit Tigers fan growing up. He may not be physically intimidating -- he’s just 5’9 and 165 pounds -- but Biondi plays the game with a tiger’s tenacity that has made an indelible impression on his manager.
Ben and Sam discuss whether an owner overruling a GM can ever be a good thing, then revisit the Tigers` decision to extend Justin Verlander well before he was a free agent.
