Detroit Tigers 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

Which Detroit Tigers have superstar potential?

The Detroit Tigers have a roster stocked full of talent, some well-established, and some still slow-cooking their way toward stardom. Last week I focused on one player each from the offense, starting pitching, and bullpen who have to rise above their expected level of play in 2015. Click here to read that. Today, the spotlight is on players who can take their talent and become more...

Cespedes settles in with Tigers, open to staying past 2015

LAKELAND, Fla. -- It took a little longer than they expected but the Tigers finally did get Yoenis Cespedes. If things go well, they might be able to keep him. The Tigers scouted Cespedes heavily when he defected from Cuba in 2011 and established residency in the Dominican Republic. Had Victor Martinez not suffered a severe knee injury before the 2012 season, forcing them to trade...

Detroit Tigers Spring Training Broadcast Schedule

The Tigers will have roughly half of their spring training games on some sort of television broadcast and pretty much all of them on the radio. This extensive broadcast schedule should give us fans a pretty good idea what the Tigers might look like without Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez at the beginning of the year. It should also give us a look at the shiny new toys that General...

MLB Star’s Lamborghini Spits Fire — Literally

If you were slated to make $10,500,000 this year and had accumulated more than $25 million in just the last three, what kind of car would you buy?

Yoenis Cespedes’ value lies solely in his name

Yoenis Cespedes is an extremely interesting case among Major League outfielders. He isn’t nearly as good as the general perception of his skill set might indicate. Yet, in the past six months, he’s been traded twice, for two fairly notable pitchers: first for Jon Lester and now he’s headed to Detroit in exchange for Rick Porcello. Although the two pitchers were rentals,...

Tigers make Winter Meetings splash, getting Yoenis Cespedes and Alfredo Simon

Sometimes, there’s a reason baseball trade rumors just won’t die. They just need time to become true. Ever since the Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez and announced he would play left field, Yoenis Cespedes became the odd man out of the Boston outfield. Actually, he was probably on the outside looking in before Ramirez was signed, as the Red Sox roster was loaded with outfielders...

Sox Trade Cespedes To Tigers For Rick Porcello

According to MLB Network Radio's C.J. Nitkowski, the Red Sox have traded Yoenis Cespedes to the Tigers for starting pitcher Rick Porcello.
