People love a breakout, so they’re always on the hunt. You’ll see a bunch of potential breakouts get written up in the first half, as season sample sizes start to grow. Among those potential breakouts, you will find the actual breakouts. But you’ll also find the noisy duds, because it turns out half of a […]
The Tigers are now, just now, 2 games up in the Central Division, which reduces their magic number to 6.
Let us begin the Magnificent Seven!
There are still 7 games left, and all of them are at home, which is a pretty serendipitous way to end the season. Although, there is the skeptical version–the Tigers are slightly better on the road (45-36) than at home (41-33). No matter,...
Got to go with JD Martinez for the post picture today. The Verlander picture search was turning up some odd stuff, plus Martinez is the man of the hour right now. His rocket into the centerfield forest not only won the game, but it completely turned around what was looking like a real candidate for “this is when the season was lost,” a game with more consecutive failed Runner...
J.D. Martinez was the Detroit Tigers’ hero on Tuesday night — his three-run bomb in the ninth inning turned a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 win. But it was rookie starter Kyle Lobstein who gave the Tigers a chance for that dramatic victory.
With the Tigers’ offense faltering early, Lobstein turned in another impressive start. This time, he lasted 5 1/3 innings, striking out 10 Indians...
JD Martinez has changed his swing and appears to have become a whole new hitter. The new JD Martinez has been a huge part of Tigers offense; he ranks first on the team in ISO and second in wOBA. In the month of June, Martinez was third in the Majors in wOBA behind only Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen. Rewind three months to late March, and JD Martinez was being cut by the Astros...
Detroit Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez is becoming a household name in the Motor City as he continues to provide much-needed protection for sluggers Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez.
The 26-year-old earned American League Player of the Week honors this past Monday, batting .444 (12-for-27), with four home runs and 11 RBI, in seven games last week.
Martinez had a pair of extra...

J.D. Martinez wasn't in the Tigers' plans at the beginning of the regular season.
He has forced them to change their mind.
The 26-year-old slugger, who wasn't even on Detroit's 40-man roster, was hitting .308 with 10 homers and 22 RBIs in 17 games for Toledo until the Tigers purchased his contract Monday morning. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Tigers...
