RICK PORCELLO RUMORS

The Tigers drop series finale against the Royals but take 2 of 3 on the weekend

The Tigers couldn’t complete the weekend sweep of the Kansas City Royals after today’s 5-2 loss but came out with a big 2-1 series win against their last threat in the AL Central race. Rick Porcello — who normally owns the Royals — labored through 3.1 innings allowing 4 runs on 9 hits while working through jams on more than one occasion. Porcello would eventually be replaced...

Game 2014.136: Tigers at White Sox

Baseball Reference Game Preview Rick Porcello vs. Jose Quintana Last night: Once again a rookie starter making his MLB starting debut comes through for the Tigers after a loss. Last time Lobstein, this time Ryan. Sigh of relief. And speaking of relief… sigh. Not “Cy.” Some job by the hitters in the top of the 9th to help Nathan and all of us breathe easier. Good job by the...

Rick Porcello Is Helping to Stabilize a Detroit Tigers Rotation in Flux

Thanks to a post All-Star break skid and a surge by the Kansas City Royals, the Detroit Tigers playoff odds are in jeopardy. Their rotation is missing Anibal Sanchez and Justin Verlander only just returned from the disabled list. As a consequence, rookies Robbie Ray and Buck Farmer have been thrust into starting duty. One rotation member who has helped keep the Tigers‘ heads...

Porcello goes for league high win No. 13 Sunday

The Los Angeles Angels finally have consecutive victories on their 10-game homestand, though closing out the stay with another one could be difficult against one of the AL's win leaders.

Porcello goes for AL-leading 13th win Tuesday against Diamondbacks

After being passed over for what would have been his first All-Star selection, Rick Porcello could have good reason to be pitching with a chip on his shoulder in the second half. He's more likely to just keep going about his business for the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers. The right-hander goes for his AL-leading 13th victory Tuesday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks...

Tigers' Porcello will be oh so close to free agency

The Detroit Tigers could be facing double jeopardy this offseason. They could have the two biggest winners on their pitching staff both hitting the free agent market in November. You know all about Max Scherzer (11-3), who turned down a six-year deal for $144 million in spring training and will become the object of every team with deep pockets in four months. But did you know that...

Detroit Tigers: Rick Porcello’s value to the rotation

The Detroit Tigers have arguably had the MLB’s best starting rotation over the last two seasons, however, many expected the starting staff’s production to take a major hit with the departure of Doug Fister. There’s no doubting that the Tigers have the best top-three starters across the league, but there were uncertainties about the back end of the rotation. Thanks to Rick Porcello...

Rick Porcello should not rhyme with poor fellow

The Detroit Tigers have never had a love affair with Rick Porcello. He does not strike guys out like Verlander. He does not have plus stuff. His name comes up often in trade rumors. He is a pitcher that does not satisfy a general manager trying to win it all. And yet, Rick Porcello is probably as good a fit in Detroit as just about any other fourth or fifth starter you can find...
