Miguel Cabrera back on Tigers bench

The presence of their former MVP didn't help the Detroit Tigers. The Boston Red Sox haven't benefited from theirs being in the lineup. While an injured Miguel Cabrera sits in the dugout hoping the Tigers rebound from a poor offensive showing, it's unclear if the slumping Dustin Pedroia will return to the field Saturday (3 p.m. pregame, 4:05 first pitch on FOX Sports Detroit) after...

2nd half AL Central preview: Minnesota Twins set to make the playoffs

Although the season is already over 90 games old, there is still plenty of time for teams under...

Tigers should accept reality and become trade deadline sellers

Please indulge me as I begin this post with a qualifier: As someone who’s covered the Detroit Tigers and grew up rooting for them, I understand how this team has operated under Mike Ilitch’s ownership and Dave Dombrowski’s tenure as president and general manager.

Detroit Tigers: Krauss will be Cabrera’s fill-in, for now

On Monday afternoon the Detroit Tigers announced that they had claimed first baseman Marc Krauss off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays after he was designated for assignment. While Krauss is by no means Miguel Cabrera, it is the best the Tigers could do at this point to fill the void left by Cabrera in the Tigers lineup.
