Sports Injury Alert:
The Detroit Tigers activated left-handed pitcher Phil Coke before Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, and they are now hoping to activate rookie right-handed reliever Bruce Rondon for the World Series should they defeat the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS. MLB.com’s Jason Beck reports that Rondon has resumed his throwing program in hopes of pitching in the World Series.

While still a long shot even if the Tigers reach the World Series, Rondon is working hard to get there. He is rehabbing at the Tigers’ training complex in Lakeland, Florida. On Saturday, he began throwing lightly from 90 feet on flat ground. He is still far from trying to pitch from a mound and throwing his blazing fastball, but team trainer Kevin Rand indicated steady progress.
Rondon is rehabbing from right elbow inflammation. He last pitched on Septem...
BEST OF MAXIM
The biggest crowd in the Tigers clubhouse Monday was grouped around Hunter, who gave a typically entertaining monologue on his adventures with Ortiz's grand slam and his spectacular flip over the Fenway Park bullpen fence.
"I'm a little stiff," he said after slowly getting dressed. "I felt like Fred Sanford when I woke up this morning. It starts hurting at...
Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter was visibly distraught following his team's heart-breaking defeat to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. The Red Sox staged a five-run rally in the final two innings, including receiving a two-out grand slam from veteran slugger David Ortiz, which was nearly caught by Hunter as he tumbled over the wall. After the game, Hunter talked about...
Justin Verlander is accusing Shane Victorino of throwing himself in front of fast balls and now Torii Hunter is whining too. Is this a case of SLS (Sore Loser Syndrome)? If you remember (of course you do), Hunter flipped over the bullpen wall trying to catch David Ortiz's eighth-inning, game-tying grand slam. It was a pretty hard spill, but he got up OK. Well, it looks like Hunter...
Once a Tiger, always a Tiger — that rings especially true for MLB pitcher Max Scherzer. Scherzer formerly attended The University of Missouri, and today for his press conference before the Detroit Tigers’ first ALCS game, he decided to brag a little bit about the big football win over Georgia:
#MIZ RT @CaseyJ_WOODTV: Max Scherzer on the #ALCS stage & wears the score of the...
When we talk about Jhonny Peralta in the postseason, it’s a debate of technical eligibility versus moral eligibility. Is Peralta allowed to play? By MLB rules, yes. He served his 50-game suspension and was on the suspension list before August 31, making him eligible for the postseason. But should that be the rule when PEDs are in the picture?

3-2, 8 more to go.
Look, I’m happy to be here.
It’s better than the alternative.
But champagne parties seems a little excessive for one playoff series win. That I can think of, baseball is the only sport...
He slammed a long home run over the bullpen and into the seats in right. He drilled an RBI single that got the Tigers their first run on a night when Max Scherzer pitched as if one run might be enough as it was for the Tigers Saturday.
And he was inches from David Ortiz’s bat when it blasted into Joaquin Benoit’s first pitch in the eighth inning Sunday night driving the ball...
Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer held the Boston Red Sox hitless through five innings in Game 2 of the AL championship series on Sunday night.
It was the third straight playoff game in which the Tigers starter had a no-hitter after five.
Justin Verlander took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in the finale of the AL division series against Oakland on Thursday. In the opener...

Over the course of a person’s lifetime, there are major moments one can remember every vivid detail of no matter how long ago it was. A wedding, birthday party, family event, or even sports. For me, October 14th, 2006 seems like it happened yesterday. Even though it was seven years ago to the day.
2006 was a great year. After watching the Tigers struggle mightily and be the doormat...
With the Detroit Tigers hanging on to a miniscule 1-0 lead in the 8th inning of Game 1 of the ALCS, Jim Leyland was forced to make a difficult decision. He removed hobbling third baseman Miguel Cabrera from the game in favor of defensive upgrade with Ramon Santiago.
As reported by Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com, Shane Victorino and Dustin Pedroia were due up for the Boston Red Sox...
The ALCS will match the Red Sox against the Detroit Tigers, led by red hot ace Justin Verlander and perennial MVP candidate Miguel Cabrera.
This is a lineup that causes a lot of worry. From Cabrera, and his partner in crime Prince Fielder, to Jhonny Peralta, the resurgence of Torii Hunter, all the way defensive wiz Jose Iglesias (dealt by the Sox as part of the Jake Peavy 3 team...
A night after holding the Boston Red Sox to one hit in a Game 1 win the Detroit Tigers look to go up 2-0 in the American League Championship Series.
Five different Tiger pitchers combined to keep the Red Sox offense in check during Game 1 and on Sunday night they have 21-game winner Max Scherezer on the mound. He will be opposed by Clay Buchholz of the Red Sox....
1:55 p.m.: The Red Sox announced their ALCS roster. If it looks familiar, it’s because it’s the exact same as Boston’s ALDS roster. There are no changes to report.
8 a.m. ET: Four wins separate both the Tigers and Red Sox from a World Series berth. Each club enters the ALCS with something to prove.
The Tigers were a popular preseason pick in the American League. And why not...
