Miguel Cabrera headed to disabled list for 1st time in career

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has been a model of consistently at the plate, and until Friday, he’d been a consistent fixture in the lineup, too. However, Cabrera’s 12-plus year streak of avoiding the disabled list has come to a close. He sustained a leg injury while sprinting to second base as part of a hit-and-run in the bottom of the fourth inning against...

Tigers Miguel Cabrera to the DL for the First Time in Career

Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus saw slugger Miguel Cabrera leave last night’s game with a left calf strain suffered while running the bases and knew it was not going to be good news after the game. He was right. The Tigers placed the veteran Cabrera on the 15 day DL, marking the first time he has ever been on the disabled list in his career according to ”I’m not...

Cabrera injured in Tigers 8-6 win over the Blue Jays

Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez took a no-hitter into the 8th before the wheels just about feel off for the Detroit pitching staff. After giving up his first hit of the night, to Zeke Carrera of all people Sanchez allowed the next two batters to reach before he was ultimately lifted. And before you knew it the Tigers bullpen (along with Sanchez) allowed the Blue Jays to score six...

Detroit Tigers’ 1B Miguel Cabrera leaves game with calf injury

In a season where not a lot has gone right as of late, things just got a whole lot worse for the Detroit Tigers. First baseman Miguel Cabrera left Friday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the bottom of the fourth inning with a left calf injury. Cabrera pulled up lame with the injury while running to second base with Victor Martinez at the plate. Cabrera was running because...

Game 2015.79: Blue Jays at Tigers

Well, us fans aren’t the only ones who feel like something has to be done with this team. The front office started off by shaking up the bullpen. It couldn’t hurt, right? The Tigers brought up converted starters John Ferrell from Toledo and Drew VerHagen from AA Erie, and gave the boot to Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzellany (which leaves Hardy as the only lefty in the bullpen...

Tigers activate Alex Avila and option Bryan Holaday to Triple-A

In a series of moves for the Tigers on Friday, they also activated veteran catcher Alex Avila from the 15-day DL and optioned Bryan Holaday to Triple-A Toledo. Batting sixth and starting tonight against the Blue Jays Avila may likely see a somewhat reduced role behind the plate especially against left-handed pitchers.

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...

Detroit Tigers notes: Tom Gorzelanny, Alex Avila and lineup changes

  Joba Chamberlain wasn’t the only one designated for assignment. The Detroit Tigers cut ties with Tom Gorzelanny too. After the team announced that Jeff Ferrell and Drew VerHagen would join the bullpen before Friday’s game, it seemed the struggling veterans were likely gone. The Tigers signed Gorzelanny to be its top left-hander out of the bullpen, but he’s posted a 6.37...

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...

Detroit Tigers’ Joba Chamberlain designated for assignment

It was a low-risk move when the Detroit Tigers re-signed Joba Chamberlain in February. Less than halfway through the season, it became apparent it wasn’t working. The Tigers essentially admitted as much when the club designated Chamberlain for assignment Friday afternoon. The team has 10 days to trade, waive or release the right-hander. Tigers have designated Joba Chamberlain...

Gage: Verlander's next start will be first that can be fairly judged

DETROIT -- Spring training in June is over for Justin Verlander. It's time to move forward. In fact, it's high time to move forward. The Tigers are searching for consistency in their starting rotation. Most of the time, they've searched in vain. It's been David Price and "others" so far. They are 13-3 in starts made by Price, but 26-34 in starts made by anyone other than Price. And...

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...

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...

Detroit Tigers' James McCann hits walk-off homer (VIDEO)

The Detroit Tigers have had their share of ups and downs this season. Sunday's dramatic walk-off victory was just another example of this team's peaks and valleys -- this one ending on a rather high note.

The Detroit Tigers continued their season of mediocrity on Sunday with a sudden flash of brilliance just when things were looking about as morose as possible. A bizarre situation on the mound involving the disappearance of their star pitcher only heightened the tension of a game that was seemingly circling the drain.
