He faced six batters and retired them all. And he cranked it up to 99 m.p.h.

Taco Bell used to explain to us what burritos are. They don’t anymore. There’s a good reason for that.

As a special assistant, unfortunately. Not as the starting shortstop.
Oct 17, 2014, 11:40 AM EDT
Not that the Tigers aren’t being cautious.

GM Dave Drombowski and owner Mike Ilitch will have to dig deep to keep the team together this winter.

Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias was given the go-ahead to begin lower-body workouts on Wednesday, six months after being diagnosed with stress fractures in both of his shins. He should be ready for the start of the 2015 season.

The White Sox outfielder is back playing and performing well following a severe shoulder injury.

For the Tigers, today is all that matters.

In eight games, Eugenio Suarez is hitting .400/.500/1.000.

This was expected, but it’s still bad news.

The Tigers acquired Alex Gonzalez from the Orioles in late March after losing Jose Iglesias for the year and the veteran shortstop smacked a walkoff RBI single for Detroit on Opening Day. But he managed just three hits in 28 plate appearances after that and was officially released from the 25-man roster on Sunday.

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 2014 season. Next up: The Detroit Tigers. The Big Question: Are the Tigers still the clear favorites in the AL Central? Detroit has won…

This is interesting. I mean, beyond that it shows that, yes, Alex Gonzalez is still playing baseball: Orioles have traded Alex Gonzalez to the Detroit Tigers — Dan Connolly (@danconnollysun) March 24, 2014 What’s more, Connolly reports that the Tigers traded utilityman Steve Lombardozzi for him. Which is kinda nuts considering Lombardozzi was a…

When it was announced that defensive whiz Jose Iglesias would miss most (or all) of the season with stress fractures in both of his legs, the Tigers said they were content with considering internal replacements at shortstop. That search apparently included the coaching staff, as Tigers manager Brad Ausmus acknowledged to Jayson Stark of ESPN.com…

With a little over one week remaining before the (traditional) start of the regular season, free agent Stephen Drew has yet to find a home. And while some have speculated that the Tigers could be a potential match given that Jose Iglesias is expected to miss the season with stress fractures in both of his…

Shockingly, mere hours after the Tigers trade for a shortstop, “a person familiar with Drew’s thinking” tells the Detroit Free Press that Stephen Drew could be had by the Tigers on a one-year deal. He’d sure as heck be better than Andrew Romine and the cast of in-house options the Tigers have for short. And…
Mar 21, 2014, 2:34 PM EDT
The Detroit Tigers have announced they’ve acquired SS Andrew Romine from the Angels in exchange for lefty Jose Alvarez. Romine, 28, will likely take over shortstop for the Tigers in the absence of Jose Iglesias, or at least attempt to. Maybe a platoon is the best option for the lefty. He’s primarily been a utility guy.…

Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias has been diagnosed with stress fractures in both legs and the team announced today that he’s expected to miss a minimum of 4-6 months, putting his entire season in jeopardy. Iglesias was initially diagnosed with stress reactions, but Cash Kruth of MLB.com reports that further examination discovered fractures and significantly increased…
Mar 17, 2014, 9:12 PM EDT
It was reported over the weekend that Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias will miss most (or potentially all) of the season due to lingering pain from a shin condition and now we have some clarity about the exact nature of the injury. According to Jason Beck of MLB.com, Iglesias confirmed today that he has been diagnosed…

Mariners shortstop Nick Franklin has been named in trade rumors throughout the off-season and into the spring. The Mets have been one team strongly linked to him. But with the Tigers hurting at the position after learning that Jose Iglesias will not be ready for the start of the regular season — at least —…
Mar 15, 2014, 6:16 PM EDT
Earlier, D.J. Short wondered if the Tigers would make a play for free agent Stephen Drew after it was reported that shortstop Jose Iglesias would begin the season on the disabled list with shin splints. It may be worse than the Tigers expected. ESPN’s Jim Bowden is reporting that Iglesias could miss most of the…
Mar 15, 2014, 2:10 PM EDT
The Mets and Red Sox have been mentioned most often as possible landing spots for free agent shortstop Stephen Drew, but as these situations often go, he might end up in an unexpected place. Peter Gammons brought up an interesting possibility earlier today: I would not bet against rumor sending Stephen Drew to Tigers —…
