  1. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 25, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

  2. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:16 AM EDT

    Adam Dunn

    White Sox 3, Orioles 2: A walkoff homer for Adam Dunn won it, but seven shutout innings — with 11 strikeouts — from Jose Quintana helped make it possible. Athletics 1, Cubs 0: Offense-lovers need not apply. Dan Straily allowed only one hit in seven shutout innings. Travis Wood had six shutout innings of his…

  4. Tigers activate Austin Jackson, send Avisail Garcia back to minors

    Austin Jackson is back from the disabled list after missing the past month with a hamstring injury and to make room for his return the Tigers optioned Avisail Garcia to Triple-A. Garcia fared well filling in for Jackson, hitting .288 with two homers and a .778 OPS in 24 games, but at age 22 the…

  5. Austin Jackson could return to the Tigers next weekend

    Jun 9, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

    Tigers outfielder Austin Jackson has been on the disabled list for almost four weeks — much longer than expected — with a strained left hamstring. But his return is apparently drawing near. According to MLB.com’s Jason Beck, A-Jax is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment early this week with the Triple-A Toledo Mud…

  6. Austin Jackson is still a couple weeks away

    May 26, 2013, 5:11 PM EDT

    austin jackson tall getty

    Lynn Henning of the Detroit News has an update on center fielder Austin Jackson‘s slow-moving rehabilitation from a strained left hamstring: “Threw today,” Jackson said Friday as he made it clear he will not be returning quickly from a left hamstring that began acting up two weeks ago and placed him on the disabled list…

  7. Tigers won’t rush Austin Jackson back from hamstring strain

    May 23, 2013, 10:12 PM EDT

    Austin Jackson Getty

    Austin Jackson is eligible to return from the disabled list on Monday, but it’s unlikely he’ll be ready by then. According to Chris Iott of MLive.com, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said today that Jackson “really hasn’t done any physical activity” since he was placed on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring on May…

  8. Tigers place Austin Jackson on DL, call up Avisail Garcia

    May 13, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    Austin Jackson

    Austin Jackson is headed to the disabled list with a hamstring injury and the Tigers have called up Avisail Garcia from Triple-A to replace him on the roster. It’s unclear how the Tigers will replace him in center field. Don Kelly started there in each of the past two games Jackson missed, but it seems…

  9. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 15, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…

  10. Tigers lose because Jim Leyland’s closer-by-committee really wasn’t

    Apr 3, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Jim Leyland

    Jim Leyland said all of the right things this spring after Bruce Rondon failed to step up and win the Tigers’ closing gig. He didn’t seem the least bit disturbed to go with a closer-by-committee situation while waiting for things to shake out. And then he went and seemingly abandoned the idea in the second…

  11. Brennan Boesch day-to-day after tweaking right oblique

    Noah Trister of the Associated Press reports that Tigers outfielder Brennan Boesch tweaked a right oblique muscle on Saturday while swinging a bat. He was held out of workouts on Sunday and might not be ready for action again until later this week. Boesch agreed to a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Tigers back…

  12. Tigers bring in “baserunning consultant” to get Austin Jackson running more

    Austin Jackson Getty

    In an effort to get center fielder Austin Jackson to steal more bases the Tigers have brought Jeff Cox to spring training as a “baserunning consultant.” Jim Leyland explained the plan to Tom Gage of the Detroit News: I’m not being critical, because I don’t mean for it to be critical, but with Jackson, it’s…

  13. Michael Bourn is still waiting for some love

    Jan 20, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    Considered by many as the No. 2 free agent hitter available this winter, Michael Bourn has now gone three months with seemingly no market developing for his services. The Braves struck early to sign B.J. Upton to replace him. The Phillies also targeted Upton and then traded for Ben Revere after coming up short. The…

  14. Arbitration avoidance roundup: Loose ends

    Jan 18, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    arbitration

    By noon we’d already done a dozen posts about players and teams avoiding arbitration ahead of today’s deadline, so something had to give. We’ll keep posting the more noteworthy cases, but here’s a roundup of the not-so-noteworthy ones that will be updated throughout the day. • Gaby Sanchez and the Pirates: $1.75 million • Antonio…

  15. Tigers non-tender reliever Daniel Schlereth

    Nov 30, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    daniel-schlereth-tigers

    Detroit has non-tendered left-handed reliever Daniel Schlereth, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Schlereth was the Diamondbacks’ first-round pick in 2008 and went to the Tigers in the big three-team deal with the Yankees involving Curtis Granderson, Max Scherzer, Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson, Edwin Jackson, and Phil Coke in December of 2009. He tossed 49 innings…

  16. Torii Hunter signs a two-year, $26 million deal with the Tigers

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Torii Hunter

    It’s not 100% done yet — it’s pending a physical — but Ken Rosenthal reports that the Tigers have signed Torii Hunter to a two-year deal. The deal is for $26 million. Hunter and the Tigers are a perfect fit.  He can slide right in to right field — or left and can probably still…

  17. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Nov 5, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

  18. Gold Glove finalists announced

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

  19. Autopsy Report: Detroit Tigers

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants pitcher Romo strikes out Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera to win the MLB World Series baseball championship in Detroit

    I prefer to think of this as an autopsy and not a eulogy, because an autopsy deals specifically with the cause of death. A eulogy, in contrast, takes in the deceased’s whole life and tries to draw some lessons from it. I don’t think anyone can draw any intelligent conclusions about the Tigers’ entire 2012…

  20. Miguel Cabrera, Tigers still wondering what hit them

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:53 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera walks back to the dugout after being called out on strikes to give the San Francisco Giants the World Series during Game 4 of the MLB World Series baseball championship in Detroit

    Triple Crown winner and likely American League MVP Miguel Cabrera took an 89-mph fastball from Sergio Romo right down the pipe to end the World Series on Sunday night. An 89-mph fastball. With Quintin Berry looking nothing like a major league No. 2 hitter ahead of him and Prince Fielder flailing away behind, Cabrera certainly…

    The Giants are 8-1 this postseason when they score first. And they lead here in World Series Game 3. Hunter Pence drew a walk to open the second inning, stole second base, advanced to third on a wild pitch by Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez, then scored easily when Gregor Blanco smashed a 3-2 breaking ball…
