In the latest podcast, the staff discusses those players that are slumping early in the season, how the organization values Rick Porcello and Max Scherzer, which minor leaguers are making an early case for a promotion, and how the Tigers draft strategy will play out.
BEST OF MAXIM
DETROIT --- Delmon Young was back in uniform Friday night, a week after being arrested in New York for an alleged hate crime.
He's hoping that will be the next step in regaining some normality in his life.
Young came off baseball's restricted list at the end of his seven-day suspension, and met with the media before Detroit's game against Chicago. He started the press...
Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera took part in a telenovela spoof during his recent visit to the MLB Fan Cave.

Cabrera played the role of "Miggy Poco", with special guest star and comedian Jon Glaser playing Tigers manager Jim Leyland (using a paper Leyland mask on his face to play the part).

DETROIT (AP) -- Austin Jackson had four hits and Rick Porcello pitched eight strong innings to lead the Detroit Tigers past the Kansas City Royals 9-3 on Tuesday night.
The Tigers scored five runs in the first and won for only the third time in 11 games. Porcello (2-2) took advantage of the offensive support to snap out of his slump, allowing three runs and seven hits. In his previous...
If you scan the league leaders in ERA you might be surprised to see Detroit Tigers rookie Drew Smyly among the leaders at 1.23. Technically his 22.0 innings don’t qualify Smyly to be among the leaders, but it’s hard not to be impressed with what the 22-year old southpaw has done.
. It’s not like he’s had an easy path to his early success. He’s faced...
Detroit Tigers right fielder Brennan Boesch caught a sinking line drive while turning away from the ball after losing it in the lights during Tuesday night's game against the Kansas City Royals.

It happened in the top of the eighth inning when Kansas City Royals DH Billy Butler hit a line drive to right field. Boesch was standing...
DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young has been reinstated and is eligible to play Friday night against the Chicago White Sox.
Young was suspended for seven days without pay by Major League Baseball after he was arrested last week and charged with yelling anti-Semitic epithets during a late-night tussle at a New York hotel.
Tigers manager Jim Leyland has said he...
The Detroit Tigers announced Friday they have activated designated hitter Delmon Young from his one-week suspension and have designated outfielder Brad Eldred for assignment. Young was suspended for one week by Major League Baseball last month for his arrest on aggravated harassment charges in New York, stemming from an anti-Semitic rant against a pan-handler. Tigers manager...
In the top of the 8th inning of the Tigers-Royals game on Tuesday night, Billy Butler "lined out to right field," according to the box score. Sounds simple enough, but it wasn't your ordinary line out.
Tigers' right fielder Brennan Boesch, who has made catching routine fly balls quite an adventure this season*, lost the ball in the lights, I assume, and turned...
It appears that Miguel Cabrera has found his calling. That’s right, he’s acting. Cabrera is staring in his own telenovela. This show comes complete with Cabrera in an eye patch, a fat guy running with no shirt on, an absolutely beautiful woman and a guest appearance from a Jim Leyland impersonator. This looks to be top-notch
DETROIT (AP) - Chris Getz's infield single in the ninth inning put Kansas City ahead, and the Royals held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 Wednesday.
Joaquin Benoit (0-1) gave up a double to Mike Moustakas, who advanced to third on a groundout and scored when Getz hit a grounder that was too deep into the hole for shortstop Jhonny Peralta to make a strong enough throw.
Prior to the start of the season, few would have considered a matchup between Detroit's Drew Smyly and Chicago's Jake Peavy a pitchers' duel.
Both are off to sensational starts, however, and runs could be hard to come by when the two square off in Friday night's series opener between the Tigers and White Sox at Comerica Park.
After opening 9-3, Detroit (12-12) has...
