Awesome Amazingness? More like Abominable Awfulness.
A four run third inning and a three run fourth was more than enough runs for the surging Detroit offense as they took down the Indians 9-4 on Saturday.
Carrasco’s struggles continue
Well, at least he didn’t hit anyone, right?
Tribe starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco (0-4, 9.10 ERA) looked horrible Saturday, giving up six runs on 10 hits in just 3 1/3 innings. To his credit, he did have Miguel Cabrera in a 3-2 count with two outs and no runs across in the third inning. Only problem was he hung a curveball to Miggy one pitch later who took it deep for his 27th jack of the year.
Prince Fielder followed that up with a majestic shot of his own, making the Tigers three and four hitters go back-to-back for the first time all season.
The last time Carrasco won a ballgame was June 29, 2011. In that game, Orlando Cabrera st...
BEST OF MAXIM
The I-71 express is busy again as the Indians have recalled SP Carlos Carrasco from the Columbus Clippers
“Carrasco (#59) begins his third stint with Cleveland today, making his 6th start/appearance vs. Detroit at 4:05 PM ET. So far with the Indians over his previous 5 starts he is 0-3 w/a 8.17 ERA (25.1IP, 37H, 23R/ER, 12BB, 13K). Around his stints in Cleveland he has gone 2-0...
GET 'EM WHILE THEY'RE HOT
The Toledo Mud Hens, AAA affiliate for the Detroit Tigers, wore special Hot Dog uniforms for their game on Saturday. Jose Valverde was the player photographed in this jersey, as he works his way back to try and get on the Tigers. Nothing like seeing Papa Grande in a Hot Dog uniform. [@SI_Vault]
Roster Update: We have another roster move to inform you about and this is a good one. Carlos Carrasco was sent back to AAA after yesterday's start and has been replaced on the 25 man roster by Clippers closer Preston Guilmet. Guilmet ruled the Eastern League, closing in 2012 for Akron and has dominated in the International League this season. He is one of the top three relievers...
Cleveland, OH — A sold out Progressive Field crowd was left wanting as the Cleveland lineup mustered no runs against Detroit starter Rick Porcello, as the Tigers beat the Indians 7-0 in the opener of a four-game series. The Tribe now trails the Tigers by 2.5 games in the American League Central, but still has a chance to move to the top of the standings with three more games against...
COLUMBUS- The Clippers split a doubleheader against the Louisville Bats Saturday. Right-hander Danny Salazar dazzled in the first contest, allowing just one hit on the way to a 4-0 blanking by Columbus but the Bats would rebound by earning a hard-fought 1-0 victory in the second affair.
Salazar (3-2, 3.80 ERA) was excellent in his five innings of work. During that time, the Dominican...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Rick Porcello pitched seven sharp innings, Jhonny Peralta drove in two runs and the Detroit Tigers beat Cleveland for the sixth consecutive time, winning 7-0 on Friday night to extend their lead in the AL Central over the second-place Indians.
Porcello (5-6) allowed five hits and was never really threatened until Carlos Santana flied out to the warning track in...
Rick Porcello’s decision to appeal a pending six-game suspension paid off for the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. The inconsistent starter turned in seven shutout innings to lead the Tigers to an important 7-0 win over the Cleveland Indians, in the opener of a four-game set between the two teams atop the AL Central.
The highlights of Porcello’s work:

It may just be me, but I thought that baseballs were not supposed to be able to be flattened like this. You have to love the phantom camera when it produces images like this. All evidence would seem to suggest that Miguel Cabrera swings a baseball bat hard.

The 2013 MLB Draft signing deadline on July 12th is fast approaching. The Indians have signed all of the bonus pool picks that there are going to sign and are $332,100 under budget which means they have some money they can use for post-10th round picks and not be at risk of being severely taxed or lose a first round pick. Here is an update on some of the post-10th round picks who...

Ok, I get it. The Detroit Tigers won the A.L. pennant last season so manager Jim Leyland gets to manage the A.L. Star team. That means Leyland gets to pick 8 players to the All-Star roster aside from the fan vote—as well as the pitching staff.
Leyland has still served up too much “home cooking” in his All-Star choices.
The A.L. All Star roster consists of 6...
