Austin Jackson

  1. Aroldis Chapman is suddenly human

    Jun 11, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

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

    May 17, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    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…

    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…

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

    May 7, 2012, 5:44 AM EST

    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.…

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

    May 2, 2012, 6:07 AM EST

    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…

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

    Apr 8, 2012, 6:03 PM EST

    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…

    Apr 5, 2012, 4:21 PM EST

    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…

  12. Springtime Storylines: Can anyone in the AL Central beat the Detroit Tigers?

    Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season.

  13. Tigers hit nine homers in win over Braves

    Mar 4, 2012, 5:26 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    On Saturday, the Tigers pitched a one-hitter in a 2-0 victory over the Braves. Today, they went about things a bit differently, crushing nine homers in a 18-3 rout. The rundown: Alex Avila – two-run off Randall Delgado in the first Ryan Raburn – solo off Julio Teheran in the second Brennan Boesch – solo…

  14. Miguel Cabrera is definitely the Tigers’ starting third baseman

    Jan 26, 2012, 3:17 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera said as much as soon as the Prince Fielder signing happened, but manager Jim Leyland made things official during Fielder’s introductory press conference today: Cabrera will be the Tigers’ starting third baseman. And not only that, Leyland added that he doesn’t even plan to remove Cabrera for defensive purposes late in games. Cabrera,…

    Dec 7, 2011, 6:09 PM EST

    Gio Gonzalez

    6:10 p.m. EDT: Susan Slusser is back with a report that the Blue Jays are trying to acquire Gio Gonzalez. Add them to the list that includes the Diamondbacks, Nationals, Reds and maybe still the Tigers and Yankees. 12:25 p.m. EDT: CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler reports that the Tigers weren’t prepared to pay the price for Gonzalez,…

  16. Who will be the mystery team for Jose Reyes?

    Dec 2, 2011, 6:10 PM EST

    jose reyes wide getty

    It’s hard to imagine Jose Reyes joining the Marlins for a relatively light $90 million over six years. Jon Heyman’s proposed $80 million over five years deal from the Mets isn’t all that special either. So, who might yet get involved in the bidding for the shortstop? Red Sox – Boston may not have as…

  17. Neftali Feliz beats Austin Jackson for AL Rookie of the Year

    Nov 15, 2010, 2:10 PM EST

    World Series Giants Rangers Baseball

    Rangers closer Neftali Feliz topped Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson in the AL Rookie of the Year balloting, receiving 20 of 28 first-place votes cast by Baseball Writers Association of America members. There will no doubt be considerably more debate about Buster Posey topping Jason Heyward in the NL, but the AL version is also…
