We need to get Kelly back in the lineup. This Cabrera guy is killing us.
Chase Headley was wearing his stone glove again, and that lent a wee bit of excitement to the top of the 9th, but otherwise, if you saw the 4th, you saw the game. Tigers had momentum, Max Scherzer gave it right back.
Scherzer had a better day at the...
Speed and the Detroit Tigers have pretty much mixed like oil and water since Ty Cobb departed 88 years ago.
Detroit hasn't had anybody lead the league in steals since Brian Hunter swiped 74 in 1997. And Ron LeFlore, with 68 steals in 1978, is the franchise's only other leader in that category since 1930.
But new starting left fielder Rajai Davis could change that. He should...
With news that slated platoon partner Andy Dirks is going to miss the next three months, or more, Rajai Davis is due for an increase in playing time. He may not play every day, but certainly more than he would have as the platoon partner who hits well against left handed pitchers. With a handful of names that can fill in in Detroit’s outfield he may not see 25 at bats a week but...
LAKELAND, Fla. -- Tigers manager Brad Ausmus knew Rajai Davis was fast. Then Ausmus got to experience it firsthand.
A few days ago, Davis was finishing up his workout with some sprints. Ausmus was walking by, so Davis invited his 44-year-old manager to join him.
"I ran with Rajai Davis for two sprints," Ausmus said. "When you play 40-and-over basketball, I'm relatively...
Despite the wholesale changes in the Detroit Tigers infield from 2013 to this year, the outfield returns relatively intact. The only change of note is that Matt Tuiasasopo is out and speedy Rajai Davis is in.
As I did with the infield (click here) I will break down the five man outfield and outline what we should expect from this group in ’14.
AIN'T THAT A KICK?

Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Rajai Davis caught a fly ball despite losing his hat and somehow kicking it in front of his eyes with his back foot during Thursday night's game in the Bronx. It happened in the eighth inning as Yankees batter Curtis Granderson hit the fly ball to center field. As Davis chased it down, his hat fell...
Tweet The Cleveland Indians defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 Thursday afternoon to take two of the three games in their series. Starting pitcher Danny Salazar earned the win in his major league debut and surely deserved all of the attention he received afterward. He allowed just two hits, one walk, and one earned [...]
“I got it” is a common phrase used to call off a teammate from making a catch on the diamond, but when the person calling it isn’t a teammate, it can become a little bewildering. In the bottom of the seventh inning of Friday night’s game between Kansas City and Toronto, Blue Jays outfielder Rajai Davis was tracking down a foul ball. Little did he know there was a Royals ball...

A Kansas City Royals ball boy interfered with Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Rajai Davis on a foul popup during Friday night's MLB game at Kauffman Stadium. As a result, not only did Davis not make the catch, but the ball boy narrowly avoided getting hurt in what could have been an ugly collision.
It happened in the bottom of the...
YOU'RE IN THE WAY
Over the years, we've seen ball boys and ball girls at Major League Baseball games interferes with live balls but this is the first time that we've seen one interfere with a catch by a player. The moment happened during Friday's Toronto Blue Jays/Kansas City Royals as a Royals ball boy prevented Toronto outfielder Rajai Davis from making a catch: (Courtesy of CBS Sports)
