Detroit Tigers: Top three hitters entering the 2018 season

The Detroit Tigers are in full rebuild mode, and a lot of young players should see the field this year. Some prospects should have the opportunity to get a taste of the big leagues and the Tigers will likely miss the playoffs for the fourth straight year. On the bright side for fans, the Tigers have the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft, so the team will continue to stockpile...

AL notes: Tigers try, fail to extend Castellanos; Yankees looking for infield depth

The Tigers pursued an extension with outfielder Nicholas Castellanos “to no avail” following the 2017 season, MLB.com’s Jason Beck reports. The 25-year-old slugger (26 in March) posted a very solid .272/.320/.490 batting line in a breakout campaign at the plate and gave the Tigers room for further optimism. Castellanos ranked fifth in the majors in hard-contact rate (among qualified...

WATCH: Brad Ausmus loses his mind during ejection

Brad Ausmus lost his mind as he was ejected from Monday’s Detroit Tigers game against the Minnesota Twins. Ausmus’ Tigers scored eight runs in the bottom of the first to get off to a great start, but then they saw the lead evaporate over the next few innings. By the bottom of the fourth, the score was 8-7. So you can imagine why Ausmus was frustrated then when Nick Castellanos was...

Nick Castellanos’ Launch-Angle Improvements

If you look at Nick Castellanos‘ traditional statistics, you obviously will notice that something is different. His OPS is over 1.000 after messing around in the 700 level before. This was the kind of improvement we were hoping for! The wait is over! If you look at the next level, things begin to muddy. Over 40% of the third baseman’s balls in play have fallen for hits, compared...

The wait for Nick Castellanos will soon be over

Young Tiger Nick Castellanos has two seasons under his belt and hasn’t yet turned 24. He’s shown flashes of the talent he was supposed to have as a top prospect, but he’s on the wrong side of the leaderboards so far. The second half had some good news for him, particularly when it came to his plate discipline, but it’s fair to wonder how important he will be for Detroit. So far...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: a philosophical debate

So far, the Detroit Tigers have yet to pull the trigger on an apparently inevitable trade deadline move to shore up their bullpen. They have inquired on guys such as Joakim Soria, Joaquin Benoit, Neal Cotts, Jonathan Papelbon, Antonio Bastardo, and surely many others that we don’t know about. If you’re following things closely then chances are you sit on one side of the fence when...
