Detroit Tigers: Are changes coming?

Brad Ausmus Before then game on Tuesday against the Oakland Atheltics the Detroit Tigers made a flury of moves involving their triple a affiliate, Toledo Mud Hens. Rajai Davis was put on paternity leave after his wife gave birth to their second child. Replacing him will be Daniel Fields, who is batting .269 with three home runs and 20 RBIs with the Mudhens.

SAGNOF Special, Week 9: Sell Steven Souza?

This is the SAGNOF Special "broken record edition" where I repeat things I've touched on in the past.  Danny Santana bad.  Rajai Davis good.  But let's start with: sell Steven Souza.  Why?  So many reasons, but the most important are his 37% K rate and 35.7% HR/FB.  The K rate is bound to come down some, but how much?  32-35% might still be too high for Souza to have great...

Game 2015.47: Tigers at Athletics

Well, that was a forgettable start to the road trip, wasn’t it? Actually, it wasn’t as forgettable as I wish it were. It was also, somehow, the first time they were shut out this season. If you knew that one of the teams on the field last night was the worst in baseball, it would have been hard to guess which one: the A’s kicking the ball around like they had taken the field...

Why Didn’t Brad Ausmus Leave Rajai Davis in Sunday Night’s Game?

After much deliberation over what went down during the Detroit Tigers’ frustrating 2-1 Sunday night loss to Kansas City, just one question remains unanswered … Not why Brad Ausmus pulled Miguel Cabrera for a pinch-runner. It backfired, obviously, in part because Davis did not even attempt a steal despite being on the bases for the next five batters. It’s also not why Ausmus...

Game 2014.26: Tigers at Royals

David Price responded in true ace form yesterday, with a 5 hit masterpiece that was 1 out from being a complete game shutout. KC fans went nuts after Cain hit a bomb to trim the lead to 2-1 in the bottom of the 9th, but Price responded by striking out Hosmer in 4 pitches. It was a desperately need win b/c the prospects of being swept in a 4 game series against what looks to be our...

Game 2015.20: Tigers at Twins

The Tigers are back to winning, taking the Indians series with a 2-game winning streak, and now they get the Twins, who they dominated by a combined score of 22-1 to start the season. It would be nice to get some momentum to take on the road to Kansas City on Friday. The victory Sunday came with a cost, however, as Rajai Davis had to leave the game with a groin strain and is day...

SAGNOF Special: Part Time Speed

Rajai Davis is, once again, a SAGNOF-ian legend.  Again, again, again, was exactly what he did on Saturday when the 34-year-old outfielder stole 3 bases.  This year he might just be the best fantasy player of all those playing only part time (the other player fighting for this honor, in my opinion, is Alex Guerrero).  He has 6 stolen bases despite starting in only 9 of 18 games...

Youch! Gomes out 6-8 weeks with MCL sprain

As if dropping the first two games of their series against the Detroit Tigers was not a big enough blow, the Cleveland Indians will be forced to go to battle without catcher Yan Gomes. An MRI confirms that Gomes has a mild sprain of his right MCL and will miss the next six-to-eight weeks, an injury which occurred in the final minutes of Saturday afternoon’s 9-6 loss. After the...

Find Value in Speed by Exploiting ESPN ADP

Speed is the easiest 5x5 category to find late in the draft.  In most drafts last year, Rajai Davis was an afterthought.  A guy to pick up in the late rounds of 12-team drafts and a guy who probably went undrafted in many 10-team drafts.  Last year I played in one Razzball Commenter League, and in that league I took Davis at pick #240.  He ended up finishing #111 on Rudy's Player...

Gene Lamont looked a lot like Rajai Davis on Saturday (PHOTO)

The jersey of Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont got some game action Saturday in spring training.  No, Brad Ausmus didn’t need to run Lamont out there to pinch run (I’m guessing Lamont can’t run).  Lamont didn’t need to mop up a split squad game. But rather, Tigers left fielder Rajai Davis forgot his jersey in Lakeland despite making the trip to Tampa to play the Yankees...

Healthy Davis still believes Tigers are contenders

DETROIT -- Rajai Davis did not have the first playoff experience he hoped for, personally or team-wise. Davis, 34, suffered a grade 1 pubic symphasis strain at the end of the regular season that severely limited him in the ALDS against the Baltimore Orioles. Although he batted .333 in the three games, Davis was not his usual speedy self. But that's all behind him now, Davis said...
