Detroit Tigers: Can the Tigers win without Cabrera?

The Detroit Tigers’ worst nightmare has come to true. Miguel Cabrera has been injured. In the Tigers’ 8-6 win against the Toronto Blue Jays, Cabrera strained his calf running to second base on a hit and run play. It is the first time in his career he will be on the 15-day diabled list. It is likley he will be out for around six weeks. Cabrera also had a MRI on his achilles...

Should the Detroit Tigers buy or sell?

The Detroit Tigers roared out of the gates this season, winning the first six games of the season, and 11 of the first 13. They ended April with a 15-8 record. What followed that hot start, however, was two months of mediocre baseball — 13-16 in May and 11-13 in June. Since starting the year 11-2, the Tigers are 30-37, and have a negative run differential on the season. Now, five...

Options at 1B for the Detroit Tigers with Miguel Cabrera injured

As a fan of the Detroit Tigers, just about the worst thing happened Friday night in an 8-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Miguel Cabrera exited the game in the bottom of the fourth inning with a left calf strain and while the team is waiting for a second opinion an the MRI Cabrera underwent Friday night, the club is worried. Cabrera was placed on the disabled list Saturday morning...

Miguel Cabrera lands on DL for first time in his career

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has been a model of consistently at the plate, and until Friday, he’d been a consistent fixture in the lineup, too. However, Cabrera’s 12-plus year streak of avoiding the disabled list has come to a close. He sustained a leg injury while sprinting to second base as part of a hit-and-run in the bottom of the fourth inning against...

Game 2015.80: Blue Jays at Tigers

The diagnosis is in: Miguel Cabrera has a grade 3 calf strain, and is expected to miss 6 weeks. The good news is that Cabrera has no achilles damage and won’t require surgery; the bad newses are most of the summer without Cabrera and no real Plan B to replace him. The Tigers have called up Jefry Marte from Toledo, who is at .271 for the season, with 13 homers and 55 RBI, and has...

The Tigers DFA reliever Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzelanny

Apparently the Tigers DO have a line that can’t be crossed when it comes to relievers costing them games. Friday, Detroit designated for assignment right-handed pitcher Joba Chamberlain clearing some space on the 40-man roster. It’s been a struggle for the veteran Chamberlain who has just 15 K’s in 22 innings of relief including a 4.09 ERA and 1.68 WHIP. Adding insult to injury...

Detroit Tigers notes: Tom Gorzelanny, Alex Avila and lineup changes

  Joba Chamberlain wasn’t the only one designated for assignment. The Detroit Tigers cut ties with Tom Gorzelanny too. After the team announced that Jeff Ferrell and Drew VerHagen would join the bullpen before Friday’s game, it seemed the struggling veterans were likely gone. The Tigers signed Gorzelanny to be its top left-hander out of the bullpen, but he’s posted a 6.37...

Tigers designate Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzelanny for assignment

The Detroit Tigers have designated relief pitchers Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzelanny for assignment as they attempt to shake up their struggling bullpen. Chamberlain’s job status became shaky after allowing eight runs in his last seven appearances. On the season he had a 4.09 ERA and a nasty 1.68 WHIP with 15 strike outs and five walks in 22 innings of work. Things were no better...

The Tigers sign 16-year old Dominican outfield prospect Juan Ramirez

It’s international signing day in Major League Baseball and the Tigers got in on this by signing 16-year old outfield prospect Juan Ramirez from the Dominican for $185K. According to Baseball America he’s a good lefty bat with ‘strong legs’ which sounds creepy as hell when you’re talking about a 16-year old kid. Anyways here’s BA’s write up on him: Ramirez has more...

Game 2015.78: Pirates at Tigers

This team seems so uninspired. We may be beating a dead horse, but how long can this go on? Baseball-Reference game preview here. BTW – I have a friend who works for the Indians. I texted him last night after the 2nd out of the 9th to say “looks like you’ll be busy tonight.” Next pitch was a line drive single to right. TIGERS (career numbers off Liriano) Rajai Davis, CF...

Gage: Verlander's next start will be first that can be fairly judged

DETROIT -- Spring training in June is over for Justin Verlander. It's time to move forward. In fact, it's high time to move forward. The Tigers are searching for consistency in their starting rotation. Most of the time, they've searched in vain. It's been David Price and "others" so far. They are 13-3 in starts made by Price, but 26-34 in starts made by anyone other than Price. And...

Notes: Ausmus doesn't expect any lingering effects from Tuesday's game

DETROIT -- Tigers manager Brad Ausmus isn't expecting any lingering effects from Tuesday night's game. Not because of Victor Martinez calling out the Pirates after getting hit by a pitch and not because of the five and a half-hour, 14-inning game. "You don't want to play 14 innings every night," Ausmus said. "That could take its toll, it could take a toll on a bullpen. It's part...

Gage: Tigers' off day is convenient buffer between turmoil, tranquility

DETROIT -- Incident? What incident? If you're going to be a good major-league manager -- for that matter, if you're going to be a good manager at any level -- there are certain skills you can't afford not to master. That's what I understand to be true, anyway, never having been a manager. That's what I've even been told is true by more than one individual who mastered those skills...

Detroit Tigers: trading Cespedes makes sense ( + dollars)

Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is the Detroit Tigers most valuable trading piece and they should take advantage of it. The fact of the matter is that the Tigers are 39-36 and on the outside looking in of the playoff picture. While it is “only June,” it is also June, so the Tigers have had almost 3 months to distance themselves from the rest of the pack in the AL Central Division...

Detroit Tigers' James McCann hits walk-off homer (VIDEO)

The Detroit Tigers have had their share of ups and downs this season. Sunday's dramatic walk-off victory was just another example of this team's peaks and valleys -- this one ending on a rather high note.

A bizarre situation on the mound involving the disappearance of their star pitcher only heightened the tension of a game that was seemingly circling the drain.
