Tigers aim for third straight victory Thursday

Although their rotation has been decimated and their offense has hit a dry spell, the resourceful Detroit Tigers are aiming for their third consecutive victory on a seven-game western trip. They'll try to erase some bad memories on the next stop at Angel Stadium, which has been their own house of horrors (9 p.m. pregame, 10:05 first pitch on FOX Sports Detroit). The Tigers are looking...

Would YOU rather Wednesday: Would you rather have JV or V-Mart back at full strength for the rest of the season?

Currently the Tigers are missing two pretty big pieces from their offensive lineup as well as their pitching rotation. Starter Justin Verlander has been for the entire year up until this point with a triceps injury suffered in spring training. In his absence the Tigers as a staff have compiled a 3.64 ERA and 1.23 WHIP which is good for 9th and 8th overall in the MLB respectively...

VIDEO: Miguel Cabrera tries Little League fake…fails

Late Tuesday night, Miguel Cabrera tried that will work in dozens (hundreds?) of Little League games across the country this summer. Too bad for Miggy, A’s outfielder Billy Burns graduated from Little League about 15 years ago. Per usual, Miggy was able to laugh it off and even gave the dugout a bow for their response.

Game 2015.47: Tigers at Athletics

Well, that was a forgettable start to the road trip, wasn’t it? Actually, it wasn’t as forgettable as I wish it were. It was also, somehow, the first time they were shut out this season. If you knew that one of the teams on the field last night was the worst in baseball, it would have been hard to guess which one: the A’s kicking the ball around like they had taken the field...

Detroit Tigers: Jose Iglesias injured again

Jose Iglesias Detroit Tigers Shortstop, Jose Iglesias came out of the game in their 3-2 loss  to Houson Astros Saturday afternoon after he was attempting to beat out a throw to first, which he did, but it came with a price. Iglesias ran down the first baseline and as he hit first base clipped first baseman, Chris Carter and he tumbled to the ground almost doing a somersault. The...

Tigers dealt first shutout of season in 4-0 loss to the Athletics

If the Tigers needed any further indication of how important Miguel Cabrera is to the lineup, they got it today. With Miggy out of the lineup to rest a ‘cranky ankle’ the Tigers promptly got swept 4-0 to begin their west coast road swing. It was also Detroit’s third straight loss after dropping the final two games to the Astros while only mustering four hits against A’s...

A's gear up for Cespedes' return with Tigers in town this week

The Oakland A's will begin a three-game series with the Detroit Tigers on Monday afternoon, and the series has an added bit of significance: Detroit outfielder Yoenis Cespedes will be making his first appearance in Oakland since being traded from the A's to the Boston Red Sox at the trade deadline last season. As Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported, Cespedes remains...

Inconsistency continues to plague the Tigers

Going into this week seemed like the perfect time to build on their play from last week and put up back-to-back winning weeks for the first time in awhile…well that didn’t happen. The Detroit Tigers went back to playing “bleh” baseball this week, the exact way they’ve been playing for most of the season after their incredibly hot start.  It has finally caught up to the...

WATCH: Astros turn around-the-horn triple play

Now *this* is one way to get out of a first and second, none out jam – a 5-4-3 triple play! Check out what the Houston Astros pulled off on Saturday. Ian Kinsler smacked the ball over to Jonathan Villar at third, who stepped on the bag for out number one, fired it to Jose Altuve at second for out number two, who gunned it over to Chris Carter at first for out number three...

Shirts referring to Brad Ausmus as ‘dreamy’ appear in Tigers clubhouse (pic)

Detroit Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus widely is viewed as one of the better-looking managers in baseball, if not the handsomest.  And it appears there’s a member of the Tigers who believes he’s all that and more, as t-shirts mysteriously appeared in the team’s clubhouse that bore an image of Ausmus along with the word, “Dreamy,”...Read More The post Shirts referring to Brad...

Detroit Tigers: Can they recover vs. Houston?

After the near embarrassment that was the series against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Detroit Tigers will welcome the best team in the American League to Comerica Park, the Houston Astros, for a 4 game series. Wait…….what?! You read that right, folks. At 27-14 the Astros have more wins than any other team in baseball, a complete reversal of the Astros of recent years. Typically...

PHOTO: Get your Brad Ausmus “Dreamy” t-shirt … or, ya know, don’t

Prior to Wednesday’s series finale against the Brewers, the Tigers clubhouse was adorned by t-shirts with a photo of Brad Ausmus and “Dreamy” below his mug.  Someone on Twitter said that Tigers hitting coach Wally Joyner ordered them. It’s good to see the team is still loose (I guess) after two straight to the second-worst team in the Major Leagues.  When asked about the...

Game 2015.40: Brewers at Tigers

(doesn’t he look injured in the pic above?) Victor Martinez and his inability to hit left handed (against right handed pitching) has been the most popular Tiger topic as of late. He’s in a massive slump (let’s hope it’s a slump), and looked downright awful in two key late inning game-tying/go-ahead situations over the past two nights. He weakly grounded out to 3rd on Sunday...

Jose Iglesias on the Comeback Trail

Most players make it to Major League Baseball without a fully refined skillset. Some players make it to the majors with a particular skill so great it outweighs a lack of skills normally required to function at the major-league level. Sometimes, it is an electric fastball despite a lack of command or secondary pitches. For […]

Why Didn’t Brad Ausmus Leave Rajai Davis in Sunday Night’s Game?

After much deliberation over what went down during the Detroit Tigers’ frustrating 2-1 Sunday night loss to Kansas City, just one question remains unanswered … Not why Brad Ausmus pulled Miguel Cabrera for a pinch-runner. It backfired, obviously, in part because Davis did not even attempt a steal despite being on the bases for the next five batters. It’s also not why Ausmus...
