  1. Video: Jose Iglesias makes an incredible barehanded play

    Aug 12, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Doug Fister, Jose Iglesias

    The Tigers parted with outfielder Avisail Garcia last month to land Jose Iglesias as a fill-in option for Jhonny Peralta at shortstop. And this incredible barehanded play tonight against the White Sox is an example of why. My goodness. That almost defies the laws of physics. Jhonny who?

  2. Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta not likely to rejoin their teams following their suspensions

    Aug 10, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Jhonny Peralta, Jim Leyland, Tony Randazzo

    At least that’s what Pedro Gomez is hearing: Heard from a pair of reliable sources that it’s highly unlikely Nelson Cruz (Rangers) and Jhonny Peralta (Tigers) appear in the postseason. — Pedro Gomez (@pedrogomezESPN) August 10, 2013   If this holds I suppose we can call it the “Melky precedent.” Of course, all bets are…

  3. Man who cost his team a pennant due to his gambling problems calls Jhonny Peralta “selfish”

    Aug 6, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Denny McLain

    Denny McLain is the best. Yes he won 31 games in 1968 and back-to-back Cy Youngs in ’68 and ’69, but according to a 1970 Sports Illustrated story he also cost the Tigers a pennant in 1967 when, in late September, he suffered broken toes at the hands of bookies to whom he owed $46,000.…

    Aug 5, 2013, 9:18 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Like it or not, MLB is making an example of Alex Rodriguez.

  5. A-Rod handed 211-game ban; eligible pending appeal

    Aug 5, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was one of 13 Major League Baseball players who were suspended on Monday for receiving performance-enhancing drugs from a shuttered Miami wellness clinic, the league announced. Rodriguez received a 211-game punishment from the league, which would be effective on Thursday and last through the end of the 2014…

  6. Jesus Montero’s future in doubt with 50-game ban

    Aug 5, 2013, 2:27 PM EDT

    Jesus Montero

    Two years ago, one could have looked at the group of the 14 suspensed Biogenesis players — Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera, Jesus Montero, Francisco Cervelli, Antonio Bastardo, Jordany Valdespin, Sergio Escalona, Fernando Martinez, Cesar Puello, Fautino De Los Santos and Jordan Norberto —  and concluded that, besides Braun, Montero…

  7. What do the Tigers and Rangers do about Jhonny Peralta and Nelson Cruz come playoff time?

    Aug 5, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT

    Jhonny Peralta, Jim Leyland, Tony Randazzo

    The two Biogenesis suspensions with the most on-field impact are easily the Rangers’ Nelson Cruz and the Tigers’ Jhonny Peralta. One leads his team in homers the other is his team’s starting shortstop. Both, assuming their suspensions start today, will be eligible to return for the playoffs if their teams make it there (Peralta could…

  8. Three previously unknown Biogenesis players named, Gio Gonzalez cleared, 12 total accepting discpline

    Aug 5, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Jordany Valdespin

    Lots of Biogenesis news has come out in the past few minutes. We have news of three new names in the Biogenesis scandal, a couple being cleared as well as more news of players agreeing not to appeal and to serve their suspensions. The new names: The Mets’ Jordany Valdespin, the Phillies’ Antonio Bastardo and the…

  9. Nelson Cruz likely to accept suspension, leaves Biogenesis-tainted agents

    Aug 5, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    The word Wednesday was that Nelson Cruz might appeal the anticipated 50-game ban handed coming down in the Biogenesis scandal, but Jon Heyman reports that Cruz has decided to serve his time now in anticipation of becoming a free agent this winter. It was also disclosed that Cruz is leaving the ACES agency, which represented…

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

    Comerica Park

    I went to Detroit over the weekend where I took in Saturday and Sunday’s Tigers-White Sox games. Such a wonderful time. Cool temperatures, no humidity, good company, good pitching, good food, good beer. It’s really all you could want. As I watched these games and hung around a city that, no matter what else you…

  11. Sources: Alex Rodriguez to be suspended for 2013, 2014 seasons

    Aug 4, 2013, 1:34 AM EDT

    Yankees' Rodriguez strikes out against the Orioles during Game 4 of their MLB ALDS baseball playoff series in New York

    If Major League Baseball has its way, Alex Rodriguez won’t play again until the 2015 season. Sources tell NBCSports.com that MLB plans to suspend Rodriguez for the remainder of the 2013 season and the entire 2014 campaign. That’s better than the lifetime suspension that MLB was originally shooting for with its evidence that Rodriguez has…

  12. Max Scherzer puts on clinic against the White Sox, improves to 16-1

    Aug 3, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Tigers starter Max Scherzer silenced White Sox hitters over seven and two-thirds innings tonight, improving to 16-1 with the 3-0 victory. The right-hander allowed three hits and three walks while striking out six, lowering his ERA to 2.85. Scherzer got two quick outs in the seventh, but was lifted for newly-acquired reliever Jose Veras after Alejandro…

  13. Yankees official on A-Rod’s comments from Friday night: “This is typical Alex”

    Aug 3, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Alex Rodriguez made some pointed comments after his rehab game with Double-A Trenton last night, alleging that certain “entities” were conspiring to prevent him from playing while finding “creative ways” to cancel his contract. While the embattled third baseman didn’t come right out and say it, he certainly gave the impression that the Yankees are…

  14. Jose Iglesias to make his Tigers debut at 3B, Miguel Cabrera scratched from the lineup

    Aug 2, 2013, 5:43 PM EDT

    Jose Iglesias

    Jim Leyland’s lineup for tonight’s game against the White Sox originally had new infielder Jose Iglesias making his Tigers debut at second base.  Now he’s going to third base as Miguel Cabrera has been scratched, presumably due to lingering abdominal issues which have kept him out of the past two games. Third base is more…

  15. Biogenesis suspensions may not come today; MLB considering Monday as the deadline

    Aug 2, 2013, 9:58 AM EDT

    Clinic at Center of MLB Doping Scandal

    We’ve been assuming that today will be D-Day for Biogenesis suspensions. And it’s possible that’s what happens. But there is increasing chatter that Monday may be the real deadline: Monday appears to be the deadline for Alex Rodriguez and 13 others to accept suspensions for their ties to the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. While A-Rod is…

  16. Is Biogenesis casting a shadow over the trade deadline?

    Jul 31, 2013, 10:49 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    It seems like all baseball news has been overshadowed by the looming Biogenesis suspensions and the circus that is Alex Rodriguez‘s, Major League Baseball’s and the New York Yankees’ public feud. Indeed, as this week began it appeared as though today’s trade deadline would be a mere afterthought. Or, if not an afterthought, that it…

  17. Red Sox, White Sox, Tigers finalize three-team Jake Peavy deal

    Jul 30, 2013, 10:37 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    It’s official. The Red Sox have acquired Jake Peavy from the White Sox and reliever Brayan Villarreal from the Tigers as part of a three-team trade. The Tigers picked up shortstop Jose Iglesias from Boston. The White Sox are getting outfielder Avisail Garcia from the Tigers and three lower level prospects from the Red Sox: shortstop…

    Nelson Cruz, Gary Pettis

    Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan reports that, Alex Rodriguez excepted, the rest of the players involved in the Biogenesis scandal are ready to accept suspensions or 50 games or more. Sources told Passan that the suspensions will come down within 72 hours. The AP is reporting that Friday could be the day. Among those expected to…

  19. Ryan Braun’s suspension may be the easiest of them all: looking at the next Biogenesis targets

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    nelson cruz ap

    Ryan Braun‘s suspension was first and, as the alleged public enemy number one — or two — of Major League Baseball, may eventually be seen as the most significant.  But at the moment it sort of seems like small potatoes, all things considered. Why? Because the Brewers season was already effectively over and it will…

  20. The American League wins the 2013 All-Star Game 3-0

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

  21. Columnist calls for enhanced drug testing, chooses to discredit results of drug testing

    Jul 12, 2013, 8:56 AM EDT

    Bartolo Colon Getty

    Christine Brennan’s latest column for USA Today decries the fact that Bartolo Colon is in the All-Star Game. Why? Because he tested positive for PEDs last year: Colon, and every other performance-enhancing drug user in baseball, should never be allowed to become an All-Star, or win any MLB award. No Cy Young, no MVP, no…

  22. So, if MLB suspends Braun and A-Rod, what’s next?

    Home plate umpire Additon calls time as Tampa Yankees' Rodriguez grimaces after he was hit by a pitch during a Single A baseball game with the Brevard County Manatees in Melbourne

    T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish reported Tuesday that MLB is prepared to suspend Ryan Braun, Alex Rodriguez and “as many as 20 players” in connection with the Biogenesis scandal “sometime after next week’s All-Star break.” Outside the Lines got this from several sources, some likely from within the commissioner’s office. MLB hasn’t been shy about…

    Jun 21, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Andrew Bailey

    Andrew Bailey isn’t getting it done for the Sox in the ninth inning, with the whalkoff homer he surrendered to Jhonny Peralta last night the latest hiccup. So what should the Sox do? Well, one thing they shouldn’t do is go out and get Jonathan Papelbon or someone. On the one hand he isn’t available…
