Lobstein, Tigers open three-game series with Indians Friday

The progress the Cleveland Indians made on a six-game winning streak has been diminished with consecutive losses, and while it might seem they've got the right guy on the mound against spiraling Detroit, the heart of the Tigers lineup has hit Corey Kluber extremely well. The reigning AL Cy Young winner will try to get the fringe wild-card contenders back on track Friday night in...

Tigers bring Lobstein off DL to start Friday

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Tigers have activated left-hander Kyle Lobstein from the 60-day disabled list to start the opener of a weekend series against the Cleveland Indians.

Tigers' Alburquerque sidelined with hip problem

The Tigers pitching staff continues to take a beating. Reliever Al Alburquerque has been sidelined with a hip problem, a pain that has been bothering him for quite some time. After not pitching for eight days, Alburquerque tried to throw on Tuesday, but felt discomfort. He went for an MRI on Wednesday and the team was awaiting the results. "He was pretty much unavailable, and then...

Miguel Cabrera blasts umpire after game over ejection

Miguel Cabrera would have had ample reason to be surly after the Detroit Tigers were thrashed 12-1 by the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday. But most of his anger stemmed not from the outcome of the game but how he was ejected in the fourth inning after arguing balls and strikes. The slugger believes his ejection was arbitrary given third-base umpire and crew chief Gary Cederstrom...

Should the Tigers trade a successful Verlander this offseason?

 With Justin Verlander looking like the Justin Verlander Tigers fans are used to seeing, should the team seriously look into dealing their ace this offseason? Matt Dery of Detroit Sports 105.1 mentioned the other day to tens of the stations listeners that if Verlander continues to look strong for the rest of that year that he’d ‘look to move him in the off season… if someone...

Five Questions: Can the Tigers count on Justin Verlander?

In the midst of a season that Tigers fans cannot move past soon enough there may be hope on the horizon heading to 2016. That hope? The apparent return of Justin Verlander. After stretching together some dominating performances over his last several outings, Verlander is looking vintage allowing just eight earned runs since July 24th including a one-hit gem against the Angels in...

Game 2015.128: Tigers at Blue Jays

Matt Boyd returns to Toronto, and takes on his former team, as does Anthony Gose. David Price is there, and not doubt will be renewing acquaintances, but we won’t see him pitching this series. Justin Verlander’s near no-hitter was a tough act to follow, but crafty veteran Randy Wolf did a pretty good job of it. He has now had two good outings, which is probably as much or more...

Kate Upton praises 'inspiring' Verlander after near no-hitter

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander came oh-so-close to notching his third-career no-hitter Wednesday night, but suffered understandable heartbreak when Los Angeles Angels catcher Chris Iannetta led off the ninth inning with a double. Verlander of course must be disappointed over how things played out, but still should be encouraged with his dominant performance in light of...

What if Justin Verlander figured it out?

A little over a month ago, Dave ran through his annual trade value rankings, and as he likes to do, after all the good bits, he wrote up the bad bit, addressing the game’s least-valuable players. Ranking third on his list was fallen Tigers ace Justin Verlander, whose contract is steady even when the pitching isn’t. Verlander ranked worse than Matt Kemp. Worse than Shin-Soo Choo...

How Yoenis Cespedes saved the Mets from themselves

It all seemed to be coming together for the Mets. It looked like they had just traded for the kind of impact bat their lineup so desperately needed in the form of Carlos Gomez and that he would propel the pitching laden Metropolitans to a division championship. And then this happened: This kind of gaffe seemed typical of the Mets of the past ten years. An all-star caliber player...

J.D. Martinez is a major bright spot in a disappointing season

The Detroit Tigers have not lived up to expectations this season. As of August 25, they are 17 games back of the Royals in the AL Central and 10 games back of the final wildcard spot. But that doesn’t even accurately represent how poor the team has played for the majority of the year. Since their 11-2 start, they’ve gone just 48-62, which is the one of the worst records in the...

JABO: Rebuilding the Tigers… Or Not

Two weeks ago, the Detroit Tigers essentially fired long-time General Manager Dave Dombrowski. Despite four consecutive division titles — a streak that will end this year, of course — and a lot of success over the last decade, Dombrowski was unable to bring a championship back to Motown, and with their window closing and the team struggling, ownership decided to make a change...

Tigers Pitcher Daniel Norris Homers Off Jon Lester In First MLB At-Bat (Video)

It’s not very often that American League pitchers hit home runs, but what Daniel Norris did was even more peculiar. The Detroit Tigers rookie pitcher smacked a homer off Jon Lester in his very first major league at-bat Wednesday during their matchup with the Cubs in Chicago. Norris became the first pitcher hit a home run in his first at-bat since Tommy Milone in 2011 and the first...

The Detroit Tigers do not have a whole lot to hang their hats on this season. However, whether they win or lose Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs, Daniel Norris will have something to be proud of. With his two run shot in the second inning he became the first American League pitcher to hit a home run at Wrigley Field.So maybe it is not as big a deal since inter-league play...

Miguel Cabrera loses glove, still manages to record out

During the Tigers’ 10-8 win over the Cubs on Tuesday night, Miguel Cabrera showed off some of that defense that he’s…well, really not well-known for. Anibal Sanchez threw a pickoff throw to first, and Dexter Fowler slide into the bag safely…but Cabrera fumbled his glove off. The ball bounced off a wall by the dugout right to Cabrera, and he fired to second without a glove...

Detroit Tigers: Struggles continuing for Greene, Nesbitt

Shane Greene and Angel Nesbitt performed very poorly for the Detroit Tigers after their hot starts to the season. These poor performances have continued with the Toledo Mud Hens. Monday night, against the Gwinnett Braves (Atlanta’s AAA team), Greene threw 98 pitches but lasted just 3 2/3 innings and surrendered 5 hits and 4 earned runs. He was immediately relieved by Angel Nesbitt...

Entering the day sporting a .190/.227/.238 slash line over his last five games, the 33-year-old veteran capped things off on Sunday with a spectacularly bad 0-for-4 with a strikeout showing against the Houston Astros.

Anibal Sanchez: Embodiment of the 2015 Tigers

It’s not uncommon for a narrative to develop around a great team — nor, specifically, for it to develop around the particular player on that great team who best represents the collective identity. For a club that exhibits a lot of power, the most powerful player is the focus. When a team is full of idiots, the most idiotic player garners a lot of attention. For a young team,...
