Detroit's Dombrowski hoping to upgrade CF, bullpen

DETROIT (AP) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski says he would like to address the team's center-field situation and bullpen after Detroit won its fourth straight AL Central title but was swept out of the playoffs in the division series. Detroit's relief pitching was shaky all season, especially during the ALDS loss to Baltimore. The Tigers traded center fielder Austin Jackson...

Davis out of starting lineup for Tigers

DETROIT (AP) Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis is out of the starting lineup Sunday for Game 3 of their AL Division Series against Baltimore. Davis has been dealing with a pelvic strain, and Detroit is starting Don Kelly in his place in center field. The Tigers trail the best-of-five series 2-0. Manager Brad Ausmus says he was concerned about starting Davis and potentially having to...

Game 2014.151: Tigers at Twins

Scherzer went from Marvelous Max to Maddening Max in the span of a few batters last night, and a rare BB BB start by Joba Chamberlain opened the door for those pesky Twins to tie the game, 6-6, in the bottom of the 8th. Phil Coke did okay, but the savior last night was Kyle Ryan, who came in and immediately induced an inning ending double play. Three pitches and two bombs later,...

Tigers outfielders collide, leading to Royals inside-the-park HR

Royals Fall Short of Come Back in Very Crucial Series Opener

Isn’t it funny how one inning can change a baseball game? Let me answer that for you: No, it’s not funny at all. Because we can’t just pretend that the third inning didn’t even happen, we are now down to a one game lead in the American League Central. We’ll just call it “The Inning that Never Ended.” That’s exactly what happened. In the third inning, with the score...

Most Tigers think Kinsler is team's best all-around athlete, but not all

DETROIT -- The Tigers have a lot of excellent baseball players, but which one of them is the best all-around athlete?   It's a question the players have debated themselves. Some of the Tigers' best baseball players, Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez, weren't even mentioned by teammates in that particular conversation. Rick Porcello, enjoying a career year with a 15-9 record and...

Game 2014.129: Tigers at Twins

Torii had said last week that he felt there was a lack of energy on the team, but that last night was different: “We had to go out there and come with a little more fight,” Torii Hunter said. “We lost the last two and we lost big. Those guys are taking first and third, stealing bases. So today, we played a little harder, and I could see it.” So instead of facing a disastrous...

Joe Nathan appears to react to booing fans and looks like an idiot

This isn’t Joe Nathan essentially flipping off irrational, booing fans after he pitched a perfect ninth inning; this is Joe Nathan essentially flipping off rightfully booing fans after he escaped yet another ****** ninth inning. Nathan walked the first two batters he faced in a non-save, 4-run-cushioned situation, and the first out he recorded was a seed to left fielder Don Kelly...

Detroit Tigers Trade Rumors: Team Has ‘Kicked Around’ Possibility of Adding a Hitter

The Detroit Tigers’ AL Central lead continues to dwindle and the offense continues to struggle — after putting up five runs early Sunday in Toronto, the Tigers went scoreless for the final 15 innings of that 6-5 loss. So now, with the waiver-trade deadline approaching, GM Dave Dombrowski may be looking for another bat. (“No kidding,” said every Tigers fan at the same time...

Detroit Tigers: Brad Ausmus Decision Making Costs Team Win

The Detroit Tigers were in a prime position to tie or take the lead in the 9th inning of yesterday’s game against the New York Yankees. Detroit had runners at first and second with nobody out trailing 1-0, but Brad Ausmus’ risky decision making may have very well ended up costing the Tigers a win. Instead of bunting the runners to 2nd and 3rd which would have meant Detroit could...

Zach McAllister makes FanGraph’s “Best Wild Pitches” for July

A pitch? A ball? A balk? Regardless of the ruling, the uncertainty surrounding the pitch depicted above, coming from the hand of Tribe starter Zach McAllister, was enough to garner consideration for one of the worst pitches of July. From FanGraphs: Pitcher: Zach McAllister Batter: Don Kelly Date: July 19 Location: cannot be calculated I’m glad that people told me about this on...

Tigers Notes: VerHagen on minor-league DL; Kelly wins Heart and Hustle Award

Drew VerHagen, solid in his major-league debut in the first game of last Saturday's day-night doubleheader, is now on the disabled list. VerHagen, 23, was sent back down to Triple-A Toledo after his start against the Cleveland Indians. VerHagen allowed three runs on five hits while walking three and striking out four in five innings. According to several media reports, VerHagen has...

Don Kelly summoned to on-deck circle while Nick Castellanos went to the bathroom

No need to worry about Nick Catellanos. Don Kelly was on deck, in his spot, but that's only because Castellanos was in the bathroom. — James Schmehl (@jamesschmehl) July 4, 2014 It was a brief scare, because it was early in the game, and apparently the team ran out of toilet paper, but Castellanos made it back in time for his at bat. He finished the game 2-for-4 and feeling relieved...

Game 2.14.68: Royals at Tigers

This afternoon the Detroit Tigers have a chance to do something they have yet to attempt in 2014: pass another team in the standings. They will be doing it without Evan “Charges Pending” Reed, who got the DFA boot in favor of reliever Chad Smith. Smith, from USC, was a bit of a gamble pick in the 2011 draft–after the draft he had Tommy John surgery, then sat out a year. The...

Game 2014: 30 Astros at Tigers

20-9. That sure looks nice in print, doesn’t it? A lot better than, say, 21-10.  Either way, the Tigers remain the last team in baseball with single-digit losses, and try to keep that going when they finish off their 4-game Houston series this afternoon in Detroit. (There are also no teams with 10 losses. Or 11. Or 12). Sweeping any team in a 4-game series is no easy task, whether...
