ANDY DIRKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Are the Detroit Tigers in panic mode?

It has been an eventful week for the Detroit Tigers. There has been lots of news, and virtually none of it has been good. Gone to injury are Andy Dirks, Jose Iglesias, and Bruce Rondon. The Tigers have now traded for shortstop help twice in  little more than a few days and the latest of […]

What do the Detroit Tigers do now?

It has been a bad week for the Detroit Tigers. Already down a projected starter in LF Andy Dirks (even if only a platoon guy), the roster, thin even at full strength, started to get flexed. Now the Tigers face the very real possibility that Jose Iglesias will not play at all in 2014, and […]

Right Out Of Left Field

Andy Dirks, our presumptive mostly-everyday LF, is having back surgery. He’ll be out 12 weeks at the least. The alarmist in me reads this as: Dirks will be out 4 months minimum, will struggle mightily when he does get back, and in essence, he’s done as a Tiger. Even the non-alarmist has to admit that chances of Dirks staying in the long-range plans for LF, 2015 and beyond, have...

Dirks expected to miss three months after back surgery

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Detroit Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks is expected to miss three months because of a back problem that requires surgery. General manager Dave Dombrowski says the 28-year-old Dirks will have surgery Monday. Dirks was expected to share the left field spot with Rajai Davis, whom the Tigers signed in the offseason. Dirks hit .256 with nine home runs in 131 games...

Detroit Tigers: Andy Dirks out, trouble brewing

Detroit Tigers: Andy Dirks out, trouble brewingAnd here comes trouble for the Detroit Tigers. Andy Dirks injured his back and is slated for surgery and will likely miss 3-4 months of the season. He was scheduled to be the lefty-hitting platoon mate of Rajai Davis in left field. In theory, Don Kelly could slide into that role. Dirks was supposed to get a big number of at-bats against...

Dirks parts ways with long locks

LAKELAND, Fla. -- The one thing people had actually been asking a lot about during spring training was Andy Dirks' long hair. People wanted to know if he was going to keep growing it or if he might cut it when the regular season started.  Manager Brad Ausmus said if Dirks played well, he could grow it to his feet.  The answer came Friday as Dirks arrived in camp with short...

Dirks returns to Tigers lineup, makes presence felt

DETROIT -- Andy Dirks had been missing in action during the first month of the season, but the left fielder put a jolt into the Tigers on Monday night. Dirks got Detroit on the scoreboard with his first homer of the season, a solo shot in the third, then started the game-winning, sixth-inning rally with a perfect bunt single. The highlight reel hit will be Prince Fielders majestic...

Detroit Tigers rumors: left field logjam

Aside from their top two outfielders, the Detroit Tigers have a lot of questions to answer regarding the rest of the 2013 outfield rotation. Barring a potential trade of Jhonny Peralta, and once Detroit determines who will be the main man in left, the Tigers’ starting lineup for 2013 is essentially set in stone. Now ask yourself: what do Brennan Boesch, Andy Dirks, and Quintin...

Dirks rehabbing well in Toledo

TOLEDO, Ohio -- What Andy Dirks has been going through is actually worse than spring training. In the spring, Dirks was coming off his Dominican Hero performance in winter league ball and had no rust to shake off in Lakeland. As a result, Dirks batted .429 with 11 RBIs in 23 spring games (56 at-bats). Dirks carried that into the regular season with the Tigers, hitting .328 with...

Detroit Tigers near d-day with 3 major roster decisions

The Detroit Tigers have solved virtually nothing regarding their tough roster decisions as the final cut downs loom. This is probably a good thing as it leads one to believe that the competition is stiff enough to require as many looks as possible by management before levying a decision. Left field is still up for grabs, Brandon Inge is still confusing things at 2nd base, and a 5th...
