  2. Offense a problem for these Tigers

    Oct 10, 2012, 12:08 AM EDT

    Cliff Pennington, Delmon Young

    The Tigers possess MLB’s first Triple Crown winner in 45 years in Miguel Cabrera and a second premium bat in Prince Fielder, but the offense as a whole is really quite average. And even average seems kind given its performance so far against the A’s in the ALDS. Shut out in Tuesday’s loss, the Tigers…

  3. Brett Anderson dazzles in Game 3 of ALDS as Athletics shut out Tigers and stay alive

    A’s left-hander Brett Anderson made only six starts during the regular season and had not pitched since September 19 because of an oblique strain, so there was reason for concern about how he’d fare in Game 3 of the ALDS on Tuesday night against the Tigers. It didn’t take long for those concerns to disappear.…

  6. Pat Neshek pitches A’s out of jam in first appearance since the death of his infant son

    A’s right-hander Pat Neshek undoubtedly took the mound with a heavy heart when he was called from the bullpen in the seventh inning of tonight’s ALDS Game 1 against the Tigers — only three days after losing his infant son just 23 hours after childbirth. But the side-armer looked plenty composed. Neshek induced a fielder’s…

  7. Coco Crisp homers, Austin Jackson doubles as ALDS Game 1 gets underway in Detroit

    Oct 6, 2012, 6:34 PM EDT

    coco crisp getty

    The leadoff men are the stars so far in Game 1. Tigers ace Justin Verlander allowed a solo homer to Coco Crisp in the very top of the first inning, then issued a one-out walk to Yoenis Cespedes before escaping the frame with back-to-back strikeouts of Brandon Moss and Josh Reddick. Verlander is no stranger…

  11. Tigers beat the Blue Jays on an Alex Avila single in the 11th

    Aug 23, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Austin Jackson

    An eventful game in Detroit this afternoon: Miguel Cabrera gets hurt; Justin Verlander pitches fantastically — striking out 12 in nine innings — but gets the no-decision; Austin Jackson makes a pretty darn spectacular catch in right-center, saving a run in the top of the 10th inning; and Alex Avila wins it in the 11th…

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

    Aug 6, 2012, 5:42 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 10, Indians 8: I was at this game, and I gotta tell ya, until the 9th inning it was one of the more lame, butt-dragging tie games you’ll ever see. Omar Infante and Austin Jackson kept hitting, but apart from that the highlight until then was Joe West getting all ejecty for no good…

  13. 2012 midseason awards: AL MVP

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

  14. Austin Jackson, Bryce Harper lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 1, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    You knew it was coming. In truth, I think those in charge did a better job of picking this season’s All-Stars than they have in recent years. Still, I have some disagreements, even if none of them are quite as vehement as last season’s. Austin Jackson (OF Tigers) – Jackson’s DL stint probably cost him…

  15. Aroldis Chapman is suddenly human

    Jun 11, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Cincinnati Reds

    Kudos to Dusty Baker for using his best relief pitcher in the eighth inning. But, sadly, it did not work last night as the previously invincible Aroldis Chapman proved, um, vinceable, giving up a lead and paving the way for the Tigers 7-6 victory in Cincinnati last night. The first two hitters reached against Logan…

  16. Tigers activate Austin Jackson from disabled list

    Austin Jackson Getty

    The Tigers have activated Austin Jackson from the 15-day disabled list. He’ll start in center field and bat leadoff this afternoon against the Reds. Jackson has been sidelined since May 16 due to abdominal strain. He went 1-for-8 with two strikeout and a walk during a brief two-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo and played…

  17. Austin Jackson is rehabbing, may come off DL this weekend

    Jun 8, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    austin jackson ap

    Austin Jackson was scheduled to play about six innings in his first minor-league rehab game yesterday, but instead he played a full game at Triple-A that included nine innings in center field. Jason Beck of MLB.com reports that Jackson will play another full game there tonight, at which point he could be cleared to return…

  18. Austin Jackson is going to be out longer than expected

    May 30, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    austin jackson ap

    Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is eligible to come off the DL this Friday, but it ain’t gonna happen: While Jackson remains in Detroit rehabbing with physical therapist Steve Scher, he isn’t ready for baseball activities and won’t do any until the Tigers return home and have their medical staff re-evaluate him Friday. That’s also…

  19. Austin Jackson headed to disabled list with abdominal strain

    The Tigers have been without their starting center fielder for a little over a week and now his absence will stretch into June. According to James Schmel of MLive.com, Austin Jackson is headed to the disabled list with an abdominal strain. He hasn’t played since leaving a game last Wednesday, but the Tigers held off…

    Atlanta Braves v Colorado Rockies

    Rockies 6, Diamondbacks 1: I took my bike out for a spin for the first time in a while last evening. It was a nice ride on a nice night. At least apart from the crazy, over-the-handlebars wreck I got into at the corner of Alpath and Johnston Road. There were no apparent injuries at…

  21. Austin Jackson exits game after suffering abdominal strain

    May 16, 2012, 10:29 PM EDT

    austin jackson ap

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Jason Beck, Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson was removed from Wednesday’s game against the Twins after suffering a mild abdominal strain on a fifth-inning swing. Jackson is being called “day-to-day.” He’s likely to sit out of Thursday’s matinee with Minnesota but shouldn’t require a stint on the disabled list. The…

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

    May 7, 2012, 5:44 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 9, Red Sox 6: Just your standard seventeen inning affair in which a first baseman is the winning pitcher, after throwing two shutout innings and and outfielder is the losing pitcher after giving up a three-run homer . Chris Davis shut out the Red Sox for the 16th and 17th innings, striking out two.…

  23. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 2, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 8, Rangers 7:  We hear a lot about Bryce Harper, but Brett Lawrie is a more fully formed version of “young, confident dude who can be a difference maker.”  Toronto fought back from an early 5-0 deficit, took the lead, then blew the lead before Lawrie hit a leadoff homer that just barely cleared…

  24. Tigers roar back in ninth, 11th to beat Red Sox 13-12

    Apr 8, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Alex Avila got barely a sliver of a 2-2 curveball that would have ended the game. On the next pitch, he got a whole lot more of another curve, hitting a walkoff homer to give the Tigers a 13-12 victory over the Red Sox and a three-game sweep in Detroit. Meanwhile, the Red Sox’s worst-case…

  25. Jose Valverde: 49-for-49 in saves in 2011, blows one on Opening Day, vultures win

    Apr 5, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Valverde_Jose

    UPDATE: Yup, he vultured it!  After blowing his first save of the season, Jose Valverde gets the win when Mark Melancon couldn’t keep the Tigers off the bases and Alfredo Aceves couldn’t keep Austin Jackson from singling home the winning run. 4:08 PM: Jose Valverde was absolutely perfect for the Tigers last year, saving all 49…
