    The Tigers were given quite the scare this afternoon when Jose Iglesias was hit in the left hand by a pitch from Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen in the bottom of the sixth inning, but it sounds like he’s going to be fine. According to Bobby Nightengale and Jason Beck of MLB.com, X-rays came back negative…

    Last week the Tigers announced that Jhonny Peralta would start working out with the team again in preparation for potentially coming back from his 50-game suspension for the playoffs, but if he does rejoin the team apparently it won’t be at shortstop. Peralta has been the Tigers’ starting shortstop for the past three seasons, starting…

    Nelson Cruz

    Melky Cabrera was no precedent it seems. Jhonny Peralta is working out with the Tigers and will rejoin the team for the playoffs. So too Nelson Cruz and the Rangers, reports Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Though he’s at the team’s complex in Arizona, not with the team yet. Cruz is eligible to…

    Officially the Tigers haven’t made a decision yet on whether they’ll allow Jhonny Peralta to rejoin the team once his 50-game suspension is over on September 26, but the shortstop is set to begin working out with the team again. Here’s what the Tigers said on the topic yesterday in a statement: There has been…

    While the Rangers are prepared to welcome Nelson Cruz back for the playoffs after his completes his 50-game suspension for his involvement with Biogenesis, the Tigers aren’t ready to say the same for Jhonny Peralta.

  7. Power Rankings of MLB uniforms

    Aug 20, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v St. Louis Cardinals

    Paul Lukas of UniWatch has issued his annual power rankings of Major League Baseball uniforms. Obviously this is the most subjective of exercises. If you want any more evidence of that know that the Yankees slid from fourth to seventh in the past year despite the fact they haven’t changed their look in close to…

  8. So, Jeff Pearlman: how do you really feel about Alex Rodriguez?

    a-rod getty yankees

    Jeff Pearlman writes today that Ryan Dempster is a hero for throwing a baseball at Alex Rodriguez. But I’m not quite sure how strongly he feels about it. Please judge for yourself: F**k you for cheating. F**k you for stealing paychecks. F**k you for influencing the outcomes of games. F**k you for lying. F**k you for dragging us all…

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    At the owner’s meetings in Cooperstown, New York, Commissioner Bud Selig defended his decision to suspend Alex Rodriguez through the 2014 season for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, calling it “eminently fair”. Selig added he was “trying to be fair, trying to be logical and rational”, per ESPN’s Mike Mazzeo. As evidenced by his…

  10. Nelson Cruz to stay in playing shape

    Aug 13, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    Nelson Cruz may or may not be welcomed back to the Rangers when his suspension is up (and if the Rangers make the playoffs) but he’s not giving up on the idea: Nelson Cruz to head to the Dominican for 12 days to work out at home gym and #Rangers facility there. Still could play…

  11. 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?

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

    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…

  13. 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.…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

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

    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…

    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…

  21. 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…

    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…

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

    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…

  24. 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…

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

    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…
