Game 2014.137: Tigers at Indians

Well here we go, it’s September Baseball, we’ve got the useful or not-so-useful bits up from Toledo, got the guys all inspired (or not so much?) after a talking to by Mr. Ausmus, and we’ve got a whole lot of AL Central between here and October. Cleveland has been the hot team in the Central of late, slowing down the previously hot Royals–almost, kind of, sweeping them (1...

McCann, Moya among those likely to join Tigers when rosters expand

TOLEDO, Ohio -- The Detroit Tigers very likely will call up six minor leaguers when rosters are allowed to expand on Sept. 1. Four of them should be current Toledo Mud Hens who have been up with the Tigers in 2013 or 2014: middle infielder Hernan Perez, outfielder Tyler Collins, right-handed reliever Justin Miller and one of two other right-handed relievers, Melvin Mercedes or Evan...

Columbus Clippers give up 11 hits, lose 2-1 to Toledo

TOLEDO, OH – When the other team’s starter has a flawless outing, there’s not much you can do.  That’s exactly what happened on Thursday night, as the Columbus Clippers (46-41) fell 2-1 to the Toledo Mud Hens (43-45), thanks to magnificence of Toledo’s starter Derek Hankins. Even a late rally by Columbus couldn’t ruin Hankins body of work.  The right-hander absolutely...

Toledo Mud Hens Pull Off Great Team Defensive Play

The Toledo Mud Hens of the MLB’s International League pulled off an incredible play against the Charlotte Knights yesterday. Mud Hens second baseman, Hernan Perez, made a nice diving snag on a hard hit ground ball up the middle. Perez, who was on the ground and in no position to throw the runner out at first on his own, flipped the ball directly from his glove, into the glove of...

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...

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...

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 ...
