One of the best hitters of his generation will officially call it a career this weekend. Magglio Ordonez wasn’t your prototypical slugger — he hit 294 home runs in 15 big-league seasons — but he was a paragon of productivity. A six-time all-star, the former Tigers and White Sox outfielder will re...

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.
Ordonez has dealt with injuries over the last two seasons, playing in fewer than 100 games in each after injuring his ankle. He re-fractured the ankle in the playoffs this past year, and made the decision to...
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 Former Detroit Tigers All-Star outfielder Magglio Ordoez will announce his retirement in a special pregame ceremony on Sunday at Comerica Park.
Ordoez played the final seven seasons of his 15-year major league career with the Detroit Tigers and will forever be remembered for his walk-off, three-run home run off in Game 4 of the 2006 American League Championship Series....
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...
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?

The Detroit Tigers are no strangers to bad calls by the umpires and moving on, but yesterday’s loss to the Red Sox can be directly attributed to a horrendous at home plate, when it was ruled that Gerald Laird dropped a what was called a “foul-tipped third strike.” Replays showed that Laird indeed caught it, [...]
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.
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...
Justin Verlander has looked like the best pitcher in baseball for a few years now. This season, the flame-throwing right-hander appears to be confusing hitters even more than usual. The confusion began on Opening Day when verlander threw eight scoreless innings in a 3-2 win against the Red Sox. The reigning AL MVP and Cy Young award winner has continued his dominance since, but Verlander...

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...
