DETROIT TIGERS BASEBALL

Tigers (48-49) @ Red Sox (43-55):

The Tigers are looking for something—anything!—out of righty Shane Greene, who toes the mound in Boston tonight. Greene has been downright abysmal since a six start stretch to begin the season. If Greene doesn’t have a good showing against the Sox, he might find himself back in the minors. This afternoon, the Tigers recalled lefty […]

Could the Tigers Be in the Market for a Starter?

Just a few minutes ago, our old friend Jon Paul Morosi sent out this tweet regarding the Tigers and possible targets in advance of the July trade deadline: #Tigers having preliminary trade conversations aimed at acquiring a starting pitcher, source says. They sent Shane Greene to Triple-A today. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) June 12, 2015 […]

Clippers (27-28) @ MudHens (25-30)

The Columbus Clippers roll into town to take on the Toledo Mudhens and their ace, Justin Verlander. Verlander will be making his second (and hopefully last) rehab appearance as he works his way back from a triceps strain he suffered during Spring Training. Clippers Lindor 6 Martinez 4 Aguilar 3 Walters 7 Ramsey 8 Urshela […]

Belated Series Wrap: Tigers @ White Sox

The Tigers managed to avoid a sweep at the hands of the struggling White Sox, escaping the Windy City with a 4-1 victory over José Quintana. The Tigers got another pretty strong start from fill-in starter Kyle Lobstein; The Lobster went 7.2 IP, allowing just an unearned run on 5 hits and 2 walks. The […]

Tigers (17-10) @ White Sox (9-14)

After receiving encouraging news about Justin Verlander—the right hander has been given the go-ahead to resume his throwing program—the Tigers look to shake off the malaise of a foggy, damp, dreary night in Chicago and get back to their winning ways. Alfredo Simon (31.2 IP, 1.3 fWAR) will look to get the team back on […]

Tigers (17-9) @ White Sox (8-14)

The first place Tigers roll into town for their first visit to the hapless Chicago White Sox. The White Sox have struggled lately, dropping 7 of their last 10; meanwhile, the Tigers are 6-4 in that span. The Tigers will send Shane Greene (3-1, 4.60 ERA) to oppose the White Sox and Jeff Samardzija (1-2, […]

Bullpen Misconceptions: The Tigers Need More Than A 9th Inning Guy

I was watching MLB Network early Monday evening. This isn’t terribly out of the ordinary, and not just out of sheer amusement. In previewing the evening’s action, the Tigers came up, and it was said that part of the reason for their strong start to the season was something to the effect of “they finally […]

Series Review: Offense Finally Cools Off, Pitching Not So Much

The Tigers finished up a 5-1 road trip against two teams widely considered contenders this season, and it’s hard not to be impressed. In their trip to Pittsburgh, the Tigers offense inevitably slowed down a bit – what they’d been doing wasn’t remotely sustainable. Good thing, then, the so-called back end of the Tigers rotation […]

Tigers Roll in Home Opener, Defeat Twins, Run Out of Pork Rinds

The Tigers are an intriguing, mysterious team this year, with more uncertainty than in years past. The Tigers’ flaws, particularly the bullpen, seem magnified. 14 of 31 MLB experts overwhelmingly picked the Indians to win the division (with only eight picking the Tigers and six taking the White Sox). Fan expectations seem to fluctuate between […]
