    Phillies celebrate

    Ryan Howard walked the Phillies off with a three-run homer. Josh Donaldson did the same thing for the Athletics. Really, if you weren’t hitting walkoff three-run homers last night, we don’t want to know you.

    Lots of shutouts yesterday. Including one that was the Platonic Ideal of a baseball game. At least if you have taste and stuff.

    Anibal Sanchez required a cortisone shot last week to combat right shoulder inflammation, but he appears on track to make his first scheduled start of the regular season. According to Jason Beck of MLB.com, Sanchez threw 71 pitches in a minor league game today without incident. His first game action since March 12, he allowed…

  14. Anibal Sanchez has a sore shoulder

    Mar 17, 2014, 2:19 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    Detroit choosing Justin Verlander over Max Scherzer to start on Opening Day was a reminder of just how star-studded the Tigers’ rotation is, but here’s a slight buzzkill: No. 3 starter and reigning ERA champ Anibal Sanchez was scratched from today’s scheduled start with shoulder soreness. For now the Tigers are saying they expect Sanchez…

    Max Scherzer is the reigning American League Cy Young winner, but he won’t be starting for the Tigers until the second game of the season. Rookie manager Brad Ausmus has decided on Justin Verlander as the Opening Day starter. No surprise, really. As great as Scherzer was last season–going 21-3 with a 2.90 ERA and…

  18. Tigers will be hard-pressed to make big signing this winter

    Nov 3, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Five

    The Tigers have made a habit of big splashes in the offseasons. Three years ago, it was Victor Martinez. Then Prince Fielder. Last winter, the Tigers signed both Anibal Sanchez and Torii Hunter. Those deals have helped them reach the postseason each year, but the ultimate prize has remained out of reach. As the Tigers…

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    When you bring Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Anibal Sanchez, and Doug Fister into any series, there are going to be some strikeouts. In the ALCS between the Tigers and Red Sox, they’ve combined to knock down a long-standing League Championship Series record while helping the Red Sox knock down an inauspicious one of their own.…

    Oct 19, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    Shane Victorino

    Shane Victorino has hit exclusively from the right side for the past six weeks, so it was a bit of a surprise to see him bat left-handed against Anibal Sanchez in Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday night. However, after going 0-for-3 against Sanchez, he flipped back to the right side against relievers Jose…

    The Tigers still have some work to do, but they are on the board against the Red Sox in Game 5 of the ALCS. The suddenly-hot Austin Jackson led off the bottom of the fifth inning with a single and was bunted over to second base by Jose Iglesias. The bunt required an excellent play…

    The American League Championship Series is 2-2. Tigers starter Doug Fister delivered six innings of one-run ball and the Detroit offense broke out in a major way in Wednesday night’s 7-3 ALCS Game 4 victory over the visiting Red Sox at Comerica Park. Fister dealt with at least one Boston baserunner in each of his…
