Tigers release Alex Gonzalez, call up Danny Worth

DETROIT -- Dave Dombrowski hasn't made two many bad trades in his decade as Tigers president.   He seems to have missed on one this spring, though. Less than a month after acquiring 37-year-old shortstop Alex Gonzalez from the Baltimore Orioles for Steve Lombardozzi, the Tigers released him on Sunday. After a walk-off hit on Opening Day, Gonzalez slumped to a .167 average with...

Game 2014.12: Postgame – Indians 5, Tigers 7

Detroit Tigers: 7-5, 1st place AL Central (up .5) The Tigers save the split in the abbreviated two-game series with Cleveland Thursday, winning 7-5.  The game seemed frantic at times–between the two teams there were 19 hits, 5 errors, and 5 stolen bases–but Detroit went home with the W. Thumbs down: Alex Gonzalez. His bat continues to wither (.167) and his arm was errant. Justin...

Tigers notes: Andrew Romine in Friday's lineup

DETROIT -- How much will Andrew Romine play for the Detroit Tigers? That will depend not only on how well he hits, but if he ends up showing more defensively than Alex Gonzalez. Detroit acquired the 28-year-old switch-hitter from the Los Angeles Angels after starting shortstop Jose Iglesias was shelved with shin stress fractures. The Tigers also picked up Gonzalez, 37, from the Baltimore...

Daily Smoko: Tigers 4 Royals 3

The Detroit Tigers were walkoff winners on opening day as Alex Gonzalez of all people carried the mail. The boys put on quite an exciting show as a Victor Martinez homer and timely hitting provided the offense and Justin Verlander made his way through six gutty innings. Staff writer Nick Shlain was there to see it all go down.

Nice start! Alex Gonzalez is hero, Tigers win on walk-off hit

Underneath all that snow, there wasn’t just a diamond – as the Tigers’ commercial told us all winter there would be. There was a perfect Opening Day in the works. So was the long wait worth it? All that skidding, all that shivering, all that shoveling? The largest crowd to attend an opener at Comerica Park (45,068) would say it was. Seriously, what more could have gone...

Postgame 1: Tigers 4, Royals 3

POST OF THE GAME: (You do need to step it up, though, guys and gals. Regular season now. Spring training is over.) Started off with great Opening Day enthusiasm. 90 minutes later I was in a bad mood, and the Tigers hadn’t even relinquished the lead yet. It wasn’t the game. It was the inability to watch it. Don’t know if it was the network, my ISP, or mlb.tv itself, but after...

Video: Alex Gonzalez Delivers Walk-off Hit on Opening Day

Everyone who predicted Alex Gonzalez would be the Detroit Tigers’ hero on Opening Day, please take one step forward ……. Everyone who took a step forward is a liar. The Tigers’ new shortstop, who was booed after an error in a sloppy fourth inning, tied the game against the Kansas City Royals with a two-out triple in the seventh. He then won it on a walk-off, line drive single...

Detroit Tigers opening day observations

What a spectacular Opening Day for the Detroit Tigers that was eventually won 4-3 in walk-off fashion by the newest Tiger, Alex Gonzalez. Al Alburquerque and the bullpen were sharp Here are my Opening Day observations: Alex Gonzalez’s day didn’t start off so hot as he was 0-2 with an ugly error at shortstop. He later made a brilliant diving play to rob Kansas City of a hit,...

An Ugly(ish) Alex Gonzalez Comparison

Many in the sabermetric community were stunned by the Doug Fister trade. Doug Fister, one of the more valuable pitchers in baseball, was traded for Ian Krol, Robbie Ray, and Steve Lombardozzi. And while it sort of makes sense that the Tigers wanted to clear the impending cost of Doug Fister and make themselves more geared for the future, most insiders and front office executives...
