Marlins have called Tigers about Price, Porcello

After inking Giancarlo Stanton to a $325 million dollar extension earlier in the offseason, it looks like the Marlins are still in the market to acquire more top-tier players. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports has reported that the Marlins have reached out to the Tigers about starting pitchers David Price and Rick Porcello. The talks are not serious at this moment. Price, acquired by the...

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...

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...

How great was Rick Porcello’s 0-strikeout, 0-walk complete game shutout?

When Joe Posnanski calls it miraculous, you read: As mentioned, these zero-walk, zero-strikeout shutouts — let’s call them Porcellos to make it simple — these Porcellos used to be rare but they did happen. If you go back to 1969 — that expansion year championship series in each league — there have been nine Porcelllos pitched: July 18, 1971: Cincinnati’s Ross Grimsley...

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...

Porcello looks to extend shutout streak Tuesday

Rick Porcello is looking for a share of the major league lead in wins, though he hasn't earned one in his last three home starts. He'll try to end that drought by going for the longest shutout streak of his career when the Detroit Tigers face the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night. Porcello (10-4, 3.41 ERA) is tied with five others for the second-most wins in baseball, one...

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...
