Game 2015.98: Detroit at Boston

No movement on the trade front, but everything is pointing that way. Price’s agent told MLB Network radio that he’s not optimistic that Price will be in Detroit much longer. If you didn’t see it yet, the Royals (who are 10.5 games ahead of the Tigers, yes 10.5), picked up Johnny Cueto. Not that we were going to catch them, but they are the odds on favorite to win the AL now...

Watch: J.D. Martinez and Nelson Cruz launch gigantic home runs in Detroit

What’s in the air Tuesday night at Comerica Park? The Tigers’ home yard has been a launching pad, hosting two massive bazooka-shot home runs to deep center field. OK, maybe it’s bad pitching in the air, with two of the more disappointing starting rotations in MLB between the Tigers and Mariners. Seattle’s Taijuan Walker came into Tuesday’s game having served up 16 homers...

WATCH: J.D. Martinez rob Chris Davis of a home run

J.D. Martinez can hit home runs and apparently rob others of them. Baltimore’s Chris Davis was the victim of theft Friday night as Martinez stole a home run away from the Orioles’ outfielder. Sorry, not in @JDMartinez14’s house: #Tigers — Detroit Tigers (@tigers) July 18, 2015 And like we’ve been so use to seeing from...

J.D. Martinez: Right-Handed Lefty Power Hitter

If you’ve been paying attention to baseball during the past month, you probably know that J.D. Martinez has been on a pretty good run. That might be an understatement: he’s hit 15 home runs in the past 31 days, four more than the next-best mark (Albert Pujols). If home runs aren’t your thing, he’s also […]

J.D. Martinez on His Many Adjustments

J.D. Martinez is a thoughtful baseball player who has made major changes to his swing mechanics. As much as writing is what gets me out of bed on Monday mornings, it seems a shame to sully this one with too much of my own clumsy verbiage. So what follows is just J.D. Martinez, running us through […]

Detroit Tigers: Should J.D. Martinez be sent down to Toledo?

Another week of baseball is in the books, with the Detroit Tigers going 2-3 to push their overall record to 19-12 (The Tigers and Kansas City Royals were tied in a rain delay at the time I published this article). They are only a half game out of first place in the AL Central, but a potentially impactful problem is looming in the middle of their lineup. J.D. Martinez is continuing...

Tigers call up slugger J.D. Martinez from Toledo

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 moved Andy Dirks...
