MLB Injury News:
The Detroit Tigers have placed outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo on
the disabled list due to an intercostal strain, according to Jason Beck of
The timing of the injury is awful for Tuiasosopo, who has
been a solid contributor this season in a part-time role for the Tigers. He was
poised to see an increase in playing time considering his performance and
Austin Jackson’s leg soreness. However, he’ll now take a few weeks off to
recover from his intercostal strain, an injury that can linger if not given the
proper time to heal.
Detroit initially hoped Tuiasosopo’s ailment was a minor rib
cage strain, as it held him out of Thursday’s starting lineup. Instead, it’s
enough to land him on the 15-day DL. In a corresponding roster move the Tigers
recalled Avisail Garcia.
Over 88 plate appearances for the Tigers this season, Tuiasosopo
has hit .338/.466/.563 with seven doubles and three home runs.

Detroit -- Baseball is a game of imperfections and failure, yet somehow most of that has eluded Max Scherzer this season.

How wowed is Scherzer by what he's done?

If we needed any confirmation that Kate Upton doesn’t like Justin Verlander as much as she allegedly used to, a happy birthday tweet she sent to Frank Viola III on Wednesday confirmed it. What does Frank Viola III, a son of the famed left-handed pitcher with a similar name, have to do with ex-SuperCouple Kate ‘n’ Justin? He’s one of Verlander‘s best friends and, apparently...

This town was ready for a new law man, a strong and dominating type of law man needed to put the riffraff in its place. No more...

Rod says, "Look out, Victor" but he didn't look. He blindly flipped a perfect ball to Drew Smyly who was covering first for the out. The feeling that the Tigers were going to come back and win this game, for me, came on this play. Too special. Looooook out. But don't look out. You know.
