Tigers Rumors: No Interest in Stephen Drew

The Detroit Tigers now know that they will likely be without Jose Iglesias for the entire season.  That leaves a hole at shortstop.  In the past, the Tigers would just go get the best available player to fill that position.  Apparently they won't be doing that this time.  Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports reports:"the Tigers aren'™t moving toward a deal with Drew, the...

Internal options at shortstop for Iglesias' replacement

Who should be the Tigers' Opening Day shortstop? President and general manager Dave Dombrowski told reporters in Lakeland Thursday that they would "continue to look at internal candidates" now that they know for certain that Jose Iglesias will miss four to six months because of stress fractures in both legs. While that doesn't mean the Tigers won't look outside...

Who steps up if Iglesias isn't ready for opening day?

TAMPA, Fla. -- Shortstop has been a revolving door for the Detroit Tigers ever since Jose Iglesias went on the shelf two weeks ago with a stress reaction in both shins. Hernan Perez started in Wednesday's 7-7 tie with the New York Yankees, and Eugenio Suarez is scheduled to start Thursday against the Florida Marlins. Danny Worth started Monday. And so it goes. Iglesias said Tuesday...

Short on Shortstop

Commenter TIGERS RULE asks: What do we do now? We don’t have a major league ss anywhere on the team. Good question. Before Jose Iglesias’s shin splints made an unexpectedly early reappearance, I don’t think shortstop was on our list of spring issues. Now it is. We worried about our new acrobat’s long-term health last season, but that gathered dust over the offseason. A full...

Tigers declared winners, beat Braves in rain game

In a spring training game that ended with both teams leaving the field and neither side sure who won, the Detroit Tigers were later awarded a 6-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves in a rain-shortened exhibition Wednesday. Hernan Perez hit a two-run, two-out single in the top of the ninth inning that put the Tigers ahead. The game was stopped with two outs in the bottom of the ninth...

Arbitrary Arbiters

The reaching of contract agreements with 5 of 6 arbitration-eligible players is pretty big news, worthy of a post, I’d say. So here it is. All 6 are important pieces of the 2014 puzzle, and even if the agreements are no real surprise, given Dave Dombrowski’s track record with Detroit as far as arbitration goes, it’s still good news. The real surprise is that it’s not 6 of...

Detroit Tigers: who is Hernan Perez?

The Detroit Tigers have taken a wait and see approach in the early going of offseason free agency. Part of this might be due to the ridiculous numbers that agents are throwing around thus far. Try this on for size: Jhonny Peralta wants $45M for 3 years. I’ll wait for you to stop laughing. OK, welcome back. There is no question that being one-dimensional, especially when it’s...

2014 is do or die for the Detroit Tigers

This isn’t going to sit well with a lot of you and I’m prepared to get bashed. If you do not feel like reading about how bleak the Tigers near-future can look, then move along. The Tigers window to win a World Series is next year, and then it’s temporarily closed. Let me explain, come 2015, everything changes. And it’s something a lot of people aren’t thinking about.

Tigers' offseason focus is on second base, left field and closer's spot

Brad Ausmus, meet your new team. The Tigers are holding their annual locked-door autumn conference this week as they move toward next season and nearer, they hope, to winning a World Series. These were meetings that could not begin until front-office boss Dave Dombrowski had his new manager in place, which he accomplished last weekend when Ausmus was named to replace Jim Leyland...

Matt Tuiasosopo Left Off Detroit Tigers’ ALDS Roster; Hernan Perez Makes It

Jhonny Peralta may play left field at some point during the Detroit Tigers’ ALDS series with the A’s, but Matt Tuiasosopo most definitely will not. Tuiasosopo, who’s struggled mightily over the past few weeks, was left off the Tigers’ first-round roster. Peralta, infielder Hernan Perez and lefty Jose Alvarez claimed the three spots that appeared to be up for grabs. Peralta’s...

Game 2013.136: Twins at Tigers

Detroit Tigers: 79-56, 1st Place (7.5 ahead of Cleveland).  Really, it is the most remarkable thing: Cleveland just cannot beat Detroit. After cruising to a rain-shortened victory last night, Detroit improved to 14-3 against their division rivals. There is nothing like that at the top of any other division in baseball; I don’t know when the last time there has been. CLE 68 ...

Streaking Tigers maul Indians, 10-3
