Tigers Roundup: Tigers Try Again, Porcello Possibly Fatigued, Johnson Ties MLB Record

The Detroit Tigers had a chance last night to reduce the magic number down to one with two games to play, but they were unable to get good pitching and hitting en route to the wrong side of a 11-4 route at the hands of the Minnesota Twins last night. The Tigers will try again tonight when they send rookie Kyle Lobstein out for the biggest game of his young career. Lobstein has impressed...

Tigers' Porcello tied for most wins in majors

DETROIT -- Rick Porcello was brilliant Saturday night, striking out 10 and limiting the Colorado Rockies to two runs over eight innings and running his record to 13-5 with a victory. That tied him for the American League lead in wins with teammate and reigning Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer. They share the major league lead with Clayton Kershaw (Los Angeles Dodgers), Adam Wainwright...

Porcello goes for AL-leading 13th win Tuesday against Diamondbacks

After being passed over for what would have been his first All-Star selection, Rick Porcello could have good reason to be pitching with a chip on his shoulder in the second half. He's more likely to just keep going about his business for the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers. The right-hander goes for his AL-leading 13th victory Tuesday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks...

Tigers' Porcello will be oh so close to free agency

The Detroit Tigers could be facing double jeopardy this offseason. They could have the two biggest winners on their pitching staff both hitting the free agent market in November. You know all about Max Scherzer (11-3), who turned down a six-year deal for $144 million in spring training and will become the object of every team with deep pockets in four months. But did you know that...

Is Rick Porcello tossing his way to Minnesota?

The Tigers aren't talking about trading Rick Porcello to the Twins, but they are starting to think that he might get there in a couple weeks as an All-Star. Porcello is 11-4, and as misleading as that number can be, he's also thrown back-to-back shutouts as part of a 25 1/3 inning scoreless streak. "I think Rick's an All-Star," Ausmus said. "I don't...

Detroit Tigers: Rick Porcello’s value to the rotation

The Detroit Tigers have arguably had the MLB’s best starting rotation over the last two seasons, however, many expected the starting staff’s production to take a major hit with the departure of Doug Fister. There’s no doubting that the Tigers have the best top-three starters across the league, but there were uncertainties about the back end of the rotation. Thanks to Rick Porcello...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Rick Porcello, Sleeper Starting Pitcher

Rick Porcello has been much more valuable to the Detroit Tigers in his five MLB seasons than he’s been to your fantasy squad. He’s compiled 12.2 WAR in his five years as a Major League starter, including back-to-back three-win seasons in 2012 and ’13, without posting an ERA below 3.96. He’s pitched at least 162.2 innings in each of his five seasons, falling closer to mediocre...

Rick Porcello should not rhyme with poor fellow

The Detroit Tigers have never had a love affair with Rick Porcello. He does not strike guys out like Verlander. He does not have plus stuff. His name comes up often in trade rumors. He is a pitcher that does not satisfy a general manager trying to win it all. And yet, Rick Porcello is probably as good a fit in Detroit as just about any other fourth or fifth starter you can find...

Girl asks Rick Porcello to Prom with worst YouTube video ever

First off, with all the stars that the Detroit Tigers have, how do you end up wanting to go to Prom with Rick Porcello?  Second off, what were you thinking making this video?  It’s supposed to be a Call Me Maybe video with the lyrics changed and it is utterly brutal.  The lyrics are terrible and her voice is worse.  Embedding of the video has been disabled by her, so you have...
