DETROIT -- It's pretty much the last thing the Tigers needed. In the bottom of the fourth inning Friday, Miguel Cabrera had to leave the game after injuring his left calf running to second base on Victor Martinez's foul ball. Cabrera never made it to second, pulling up lame as he was about halfway there.  The Tigers announced that Cabrera has a left calf strain and is undergoing...

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...

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...

Detroit Tigers’ Alex Avila nearing return

Manager Brad Ausmus wasn’t ready to commit. Still, there’s a good chance that Alex Avila returns to the majors on Friday. When asked if the Detroit Tigers catcher will be recalled following tonight’s game in Toledo, Ausmus didn’t take the bait. “He’s DH-ing (in Toledo) tonight.” Ausmus told Chris McCosky of The Detroit News. Brad Ausmus said Alex Avila will DH tonight...

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...

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...

Tigers need to make change atop lineup

(Leon Halip/Getty Images North America) It’s time to change up the top of the Tigers’ order, Brad Ausmus. It’s more than fine for both Rajai Davis and Jose Iglesias to bat leadoff, but Anthony Gose should not be for the foreseeable future with his batting average ending up at .169 for the month of June after his 1-for-5 performance on Tuesday against the Pirates. Additionally...

Gritty performances not enough to lift Tigers over White Sox

DETROIT -- There were some gritty performances by the Tigers Tuesday night, but just not enough for a victory. Justin Verlander, in his third start of the season, struggled mightily in the early going but found a way to give the Tigers some innings and a chance to win the game. J.D. Martinez hit a game-tying two-run home run in the eighth, his 20th of the season and 11th in the month...

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...
