DETROIT -- No one is preparing a Hall of Fame plaque for him or even referring to him as a SharkNado (yet), but Bruce Rondon is going to help the Tigers this season.
Rondon started the seventh inning against the Texas Rangers with a 7-2 lead, relieving starter Doug Fister.
Rondon threw 10 pitches, all for strikes as he got four straight outs before handing the game to Drew Smyly.
"That's a Catch-22," manager Jim Leyland said. "We want to make sure he throws strikes but we want to make sure he doesn't throw too many. He's doing great. It's a little difficult but we're kind of breaking him in, we're breaking him into some nice situations and he's really responding. I'm really proud of him."
Rondon was able to mix his pitches and use his 100 mile-an-hour fastball when he wanted to, as he did when he struck out Nelson Cruz.
"The difference was the consistency in my pitches, the slider, breaking ball and everything," Rond...

Detroit Tigers right fielder Torii Hunter was able to avoid being hit by a home run ball thrown back onto the field, by one of his own fans, during Thursday's game at Comerica Park.
After Chicago White Sox batter Alejandro de Aza hit a home run into the right field stands in the top of the eighth, the fan decided on making the...
A big question for an All-Star manager going into the midsummer classic is who will be the starting pitcher? I will tell you why Jim Leyland won’t have to look that far to find his man. We are only a few days away from the MLB’s 84th annual All-Star game which will be held in Citi Field, New York City, New York, which is the home of the New York Mets. One of the biggest question...
DETROIT Jim Leyland doesnt get a whole lot of love from Detroit Tigers fans.
Hes maligned in the social media and on radio talk shows for continuing to use Phil Coke with the game still in doubt; having too many cronies on his coaching staff; playing Andy Dirks, Don Kelly, Ramon Santiago and Alex Avila too much; not playing Matt Tuiasosopo enough; letting Jose Valverde burn down...
DETROIT Miguel Cabrera, an accomplished amateur baseball player in Venezuela, taught his son how to play and love the game.
He stood in the dugout prior to Saturday nights game, watching Jose Miguel Cabrera, who goes by his middle name, take batting practice before the Detroit Tigers played the Texas Rangers. The proud father talked about the magnificent season his son is having...
YouTube The Tigers and White Sox got into a little dance party Thursday afternoon Tigers reliever Luke Putkonen threw a pitch behind White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez. Putkonen’s pitch was in retaliation to the Tigers believing that White Sox starter Chris Sale threw up and in to Prince Fielder following a Miguel Cabrera home run earlier in the game. All you need to about the...
Most professional athletes hate doing post game interviews, it’s just the way it is. But every so often you find an athlete that likes to have fun with the reporters, and Torii Hunter, the Detroit Tigers outfielder, is one of those athletes.
After Miguel Cabrera hit a home run off of White Sox ace Chris Sale in yesterday’s game, Sale threw up and in on the Tigers next hitter...

DETROIT -- Tigers starter Rick Porcello, who won his sixth game Wednesday night, dropped the appeal of his six-game suspension Thursday, as expected.
Major League Baseball originally suspended Porcello six games for hitting Tampa Bay's Ben Zobrist with a pitch in the first inning June 30.
Porcello, who said he thought the suspension might have...
Detroit reliever Luke Putkonen threw a pitch behind Chicago's Alexei Ramirez, and both benches and bullpens emptied in the top of the sixth inning of Thursday's game between the Tigers and White Sox.
An inning after Chris Sale threw high and inside to Tigers star Prince Fielder, the trouble occurred. Ramirez started toward the mound after nearly being hit, pointing at Putkonen...
51-42, 1st place, 1.5 games ahead of Cleveland.
OK, that didn’t go so well. I look at it as Scherzer losing 4-1, let down considerably by his teammates. (Is Alburquerque even worth mentioning? No.) The bright spots would seem to be Phil Coke (the inevitable response to being singled out for criticism in a game post – guess we need to keep it up, guys) and an RBI from Hernan Perez...
It’s entirely possible that Luke Putkonen just lost grip of his pitch, leading it to sail behind Alexei Ramirez at the plate, but probably not.
Whatever the motive may be, though, Ramirez was none too pleased with the pitch delivered during the sixth inning of the Tigers-White Sox game at Comerica Park on Thursday afternoon. The White Sox shortstop made a few steps toward Putkonen...
The L.A. Dodgers hit another multi-year high on Tuesday night. In other news, the Tigers earned their second-best rating of the season, and ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” could not match last year’s Yankees/Red Sox affair. [...]
Eventually all good things must come to an end, right? If you need proof just ask Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer. It's been nine months since he last lost a game.
Yeah, that's right. I used the past tense.
It's been a heck of season for Scherzer this year--13-0 record and a 3.06 ERA. While Tigers fans were likely dreaming that he would manage to go undefeated...
