WATCH: Miguel Sano throws punch as benches clear in Twins-Tigers game

Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sano is a big man. The 25-year-old stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs 260 pounds. That’s a linebacker frame on a MLB player.So when Sano gets angry, it’s probably best not to cross paths with him. Someone should have told this to Detroit Tigers catcher James McCann when the two teams faced off on Saturday. After seeing Tigers pitcher Matthew Boyd throw...

Tigers Den Roundtable: What is your biggest takeaway from the 2017 season so far?

The BYB staff tries to find significance in an insignificant chunk of the schedule. Were it not for the Toronto Blue Jays faceplanting out of the gate, one might argue that the Detroit Tigers are the biggest surprise of the 2017 season thus far. Their flop of a series in Tampa aside, the Tigers have jumped out to a slim early lead in the AL Central. Unlike other surprise stories...

Very few fans have been showing up to Tampa Bay Rays games this season, but the ones who do are creating one heck of a home field advantage for their team.In their 8-7 loss to Tampa on Wednesday, the Detroit Tigers allowed two very catchable fly balls to fall between them in the outfield during the game’s first three innings.

Miguel Cabrera’s Short- and, Perhaps, Longer-Term Con

CLEVELAND — The Indians did many things well en route to their division title and pennant in 2016. And one of those was to quiet the bat, in relative terms, of Miguel Cabrera. Until last year, Cabrera had been Babe Ruth-like against Cleveland pitching. Really. Ruth and Cabrera — who, in 167 career games against the Indians, has hit .352 with 43 home runs — are the only two...

Detroit Tigers: How long is Anibal Sanchez’s leash?

The Detroit Tigers bullpen stinks. That has been a common theme over the past seasons in the Motor City and there was hope that this year might be different after releasing Mark Lowe and Mike Pelfrey, but through the first 2 weeks of the season, the same theme has emerged. It seemed the only reliever who hadn’t struggled was Joe Jimenez, who pitched 1 perfect inning before being...

Early impact of J.D. Martinez’s injury on the Detroit Tigers

Starting the season with J.D. Martinez on the 10-day disabled list is not the way the Detroit Tigers had in mind. The outfield is going to be the weakest part of the defense for at least the first 10 days due to Martinez being out and the Tigers not having a true center fielder. Justin Upton is the only starter from last season that will be starting when the season begins. Sure,...
