DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have claimed first baseman-outfielder Marc Krauss off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays. Manager Brad Ausmus expected Krauss to join the team in Seattle, where the Tigers start a series Monday night, although he hadn't arrived at Safeco Field when the skipper addressed the media before the game.

Game 2015.82: Tigers at Mariners

Is it just me, or is Justin Verlander way the heck out of touch with reality? Here’s a quote from him yesterday: “There’s two ways that you can approach this. You can look at the fifth inning and think negatively. Or you can look at the rest of it and think positively.” … “Felt really good about it. It’s a shame that I kind of feel out of sync there in the fifth, but...

Detroit Tigers’ midterm grades: Position players

Its been a disappointing season for the Detroit Tigers. For a club with annual World Series or bust expectations, the product on the field is discouraging. The injury to Miguel Cabrera has evaporated fans enthusiasm for this club turning things around. Midway through the season, the Tigers are 41-40 and fans are experiencing déjà vu from the nightmarish 2008 season. That won...

Does any Kansas City Royals player deserve to start the All-Star Game?

Over the past six weeks, the popular story for the All-Star Game voting was the amount of players from the Kansas City Royals leading the nine starting spots. At one point, they had eight of those spots filled by Royals, but it fell down to four starters by the end of the voting process. Now that the voting is final and the statistics are up to date, there is a fair question to be...

What’s the ceiling for J.D. Martinez of the Detroit Tigers?

A recent hot streak has put J.D. Martinez of the Detroit Tigers near the top of the American League in both home runs and RBI.  In fact, his 23 home runs so far this season has already equalled his career high, which he set last year.  He trails Albert Pujols of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim by two homers. His 56 RBI has him tied for third in the league with Josh Donaldson...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Jul 6

On Thursday I said the following about Matt Boyd’s start against the Red Sox: Boyd is probably the riskiest pitcher on the day. If the fly balls don’t go his way, he could get lit up for 7 ER in 3 IP…Let me state this explicitly: In no way do I trust Boyd to give me a good outing. However, for $4,400 the upside is incredible if the batted balls go his way, and with this lineup...

Fantasy Baseball Final: July 5, 2015

Photo Credit: eric endow IF YOU READ ONLY ONE THING… The Angels offense continues to roll after scoring in each of the first five innings on Sunday en route to defeating the Rangers 12-6. The Angels were led by Albert Pujols and his AL-leading 25th home run. Kole Calhoun also had a home run in the game and drove in four RBIs. The Angels capped off an impressive offensive weekend...

Game 2015.81: Blue Jays at Tigers

The Tiger bats boomed again yesterday afternoon, which means that today they have a chance to be on the right end of the broom, which would be more than welcome after getting the business from Pittsburgh. The Blue Jays are not exactly known for their pitching, but they can score a lot of runs in a hurry, so another offensive outburst today would be useful. Especially as the Tigers...

Martinez homers to back Price as Tigers beat Blue Jays 8-3

DETROIT (AP) J.D. Martinez homered and David Price pitched seven strong innings as the Detroit Tigers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-3 on Saturday afternoon. Before the game, the Tigers placed Miguel Cabrera on the disabled list for the first time in his 13-year career. Detroit has scored 15 runs in 14 innings since losing their best offensive player.

Burning questions surrounding the Detroit Tigers

Another week has passed, but the Detroit Tigers are still six games out of first place. The story of the week is bad pitching and moving pieces. The pitching staff was poor as the Tigers allowed 48 hits in a three-game sweep at the hands of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Luckily, the Kansas City Royals were in the midst of a four-game losing streak that kept the Tigers from falling further...

Detroit Tigers’ 1B Miguel Cabrera expected to go on DL

If you believe the reaction after the Detroit Tigers‘ 8-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, the news coming on Miguel Cabrera‘s left calf injury will not be good. Cabrera exited the game in the bottom of the fourth inning, he pulled up in pain as he was on the move on a 3-2 pitch to Victor Martinez. After a visit from Manager Brad Ausmus and Head Athletic Trainer Kevin Rand, Cabrera...

Game 2015.79: Blue Jays at Tigers

Well, us fans aren’t the only ones who feel like something has to be done with this team. The front office started off by shaking up the bullpen. It couldn’t hurt, right? The Tigers brought up converted starters John Ferrell from Toledo and Drew VerHagen from AA Erie, and gave the boot to Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzellany (which leaves Hardy as the only lefty in the bullpen...

Tigers try to avoid fourth straight loss Friday

In danger of dropping below .500 for the first time this season, the Detroit Tigers are not ready to panic but won't deny their collective frustration. They might not have an easy time keeping Drew Hutchison from recording a fourth straight winning start for the visiting Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night (6 p.m. pregame, 7:08 first pitch on FOX Sports Detroit).

A car ride and late night

I spent much off yesterday in the car, and was able to listen to most of the Pirates and Tigers on the second half of my drive. As Antonio Bastardo melted down, I did the thing where I was most of the way past New  Castle and realized that Antonio Bastardo had been pitching since around where 376 and the Turnpike. Then JD Martinez hit his home run, and I started worrying that I...

Tigers call back to .500 after getting swept by Pirates

DETROIT (AP) J.D. Martinez is doing everything he can to keep the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central race. If he doesn't get more help, it isn't going to matter. Martinez hit a 3-run homer in the eighth inning Thursday, his 21st of the season and 12th in 20 games, but it wasn't enough to avoid the Pittsburgh Pirates finishing a three-game sweep with an 8-4 victory. The Tigers are...

Game 2015.77: Pirates at Tigers

Last night’s loss is on the O, not the pen, or even Gorzelanny. Alex Wilson was at 50+ pitches and Gorzelanny was the last guy in the pen. Ausmus didn’t have any other options. A hit with a RISP would have been nice. 3-15 usually isn’t going to get the job done; unless of course you are Pittsburgh and get a W hitting 2-16 w RISP. Baseball is a funny game.

Notes: Ausmus doesn't expect any lingering effects from Tuesday's game

DETROIT -- Tigers manager Brad Ausmus isn't expecting any lingering effects from Tuesday night's game. Not because of Victor Martinez calling out the Pirates after getting hit by a pitch and not because of the five and a half-hour, 14-inning game. "You don't want to play 14 innings every night," Ausmus said. "That could take its toll, it could take a toll on a bullpen. It's part...

Game 76: Pirates 5 Tigers 4

Somehow, a game that Gerrit Cole left in the seventh inning with a 4-2 lead turned into a story about Deolis Guerra and Gorkys Hernandez. Actually, “somehow” is the wrong word because we know exactly how it happened: a two-run JD Martinez home run off of Tony Watson in the seventh inning. Regardless, on to Guerra, Hernandez, and a little bit of Neil Walker. The Pirates have played...
