Tigers call up Miller, demote Collins

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers will be going with an extra bullpen pitcher and one less player on the bench for the "short-term" future. Hard-throwing, right-handed reliever Justin Miller, who had been closing for Toledo, was called up from the Mud Hens before Friday night's game with the Los Angeles Angels. Outfielder Tyler Collins, who was batting .143 with 14 at-bats...

Game 2014.13: LAA at Det

Tigers made a move today to replenish a worn out bullpen, by bringing up righty Justin Miller from Toledo and sending down Tyler Collins. Since they have 10 games left on this home stand, and Collins has to stay down for 10 days, Miller should get a nice audition before the Tigers have to think about making another move. 1.

A first taste of Opening Day at Comerica Park

DETROIT -- Opening Day is an event unmatched in Detroit. For four Tigers, it will be a first -- and unforgettable -- experience. Nick Castellanos, Evan Reed and Luke Putkonen have already made their major-league debuts, but they've never experienced Opening Day with the Tigers.

Detroit Tigers: Tyler Collins making a big push

The Detroit Tigers have been met with uncertainty this spring due to injuries to expected starters Jose Iglesias and Andy Dirks. While the majority of the focus, and rightfully so, has surrounded what to do at shortstop, one players has been emerging as the potential 5th outfielder. That guy is Tyler Collins. Collins, 23, is a 5’11’’, 215 lb. bruiser with a lot of athleticism...

Video: Tyler Collins, Fighting for Opening Day Roster Spot, Hits 2-Run Homer

With Andy Dirks out of the lineup for the next couple of months, the Detroit Tigers find themselves searching for someone to pair with Rajai Davis in a left-field platoon. Could Tyler Collins be the answer? He continued to state his case for a shot with a two-run homer on Tuesday against the New York Mets. Your browser does not support iframes. That is the second home run of the...

A Minor Review of 2013: Tigers

There is always a bit of a lull between the end of the minor league playoffs in September and the start of the annual top prospects lists in early November. Because of that gap, I’m breathing new life into an old feature that I wrote for the site in FanGraphs’ infancy back in 2008 and 2009. The series ‘A Minor Review of 2013′ will look back on some of the major happenings...

Prospect Sleepers: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

During my 2011-12 Top 15 prospects lists (in other words, prior to the 2012 season) I added a 16th player to each list by identifying a sleeper, or potential breakout star. Looking back more than a year later, I am still quite pleased with the picks – although I had more than a few misses with my collection of hits. Prospecting writing is, after all, about trying to be right more...

This bullpen-catcher-looking outfielder helped win a Spring Training game for the Tigers

 This is Tyler Collins, I think. I have no idea. I've never actually seen him before. All I know is he isn't the the R&B singer. In the Tigers' 2013 spring training opener, Collins broke up a no hitter in the eighth inning with a triple, hit a double in the ninth, and also made a diving catch. He's one of the Tigers' top hitting prospects and he promises...

Catching Up

Hello Friends - This PED stuff is really interesting to me. My reaction to the latest reports on Biogenesis was a far cry from the disappointment that I had to similar reports in the (way) past. At this point in time, I’m surprised there weren’t more people on the list. Or any Tigers for that matter (well, none on the big league club, prospect Cesar Carillo was linked). If you...

Top Ten Left Field Prospects Update #4

None of the left fielders have been called up and none are likely to be called up before September. Even then, the numbers will be low. The left field contingent is simply younger than at most other positions. That will make the competition for the top ten in 2013 especially fierce. As we know, left field is usually a strong offensive position, so there will be no shortage...

One of the more enjoyable parts of the annual Top 15 prospects lists that I do at FanGraphs is unearthing and writing about new, unpolished prospect gems.

I call this the second update for left fielders, but I couldn’t find the first one in the archives. I suppose these things happen, so I wanted to make sure this oversight doesn’t happen again.
