Prince Fielder

  1. Alex Avila is out of today’s lineup

    Sep 17, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Alex Avila

    The Tigers will be without their starting catcher today as Alex Avila is still apparently feeling the effects of his collision with Prince Fielder today — who wouldn’t be? — and is being held out of the Tigers-White Sox game. The good news: it appears to only be a sore jaw, not a concussion, meaning…

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

    Sep 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v San Diego Padres

    Brewers 8, Braves 2; Phillies 3, Marlins 1; Padres 3, Cardinals 2: Um, yeah, this keeps happening. The Cardinals, beneficiaries of an epic collapse by the Braves last year are themselves collapsing. And Philly and Milwaukee look like they’ll never lose again.  Just insanity in the NL wild card race these days. It’s kinda great.…

  3. Kittens come up short again in 6-1 loss to White Sox

    Sep 10, 2012, 11:40 PM EDT

    Austin Jackson

    Going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position isn’t a recipe for success. Since sweeping the White Sox from Aug. 31-Sept. 2, the Tigers have been tamed at the plate: Sept. 3: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 4: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 5: Won 7-1 vs. Clev Sept. 7: Lost 2-3 at LAA Sept. 8:…

  4. Mike Trout … [yawn] … does some more incredible things

    Sep 9, 2012, 12:08 PM EDT

    Angels phenom Mike Trout was at it again Saturday night in Anaheim, leading off a 6-1 victory over the Tigers with a home run then ending the game by robbing Prince Fielder at the center field wall. The big fly was Trout’s 26th of the 2012 season and the home run-robbing grab was his fourth.…

  5. Miguel Cabrera is AL’s Player of the Month, but not the Tigers’

    Sep 4, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    How’s that for silliness? Miguel Cabrera was recognized Tuesday by the BBWAA as the American League’s Player of the Month for August, but he didn’t get the same honor from the Detroit chapter in the vote for Tigers’ Player of the Month. Instead, Detroit writers picked Prince Fielder, and justifiably so. Here are the August stats for…

    Cliff Lee

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

  7. Justin Verlander fans 14 to defeat Yankees

    Aug 6, 2012, 10:53 PM EDT

    Justin Verlander

    Justin Verlander became the first pitcher since Boston’s Pedro Martinez in 1999 to strike out at least 14 Yankees in a 7-2 victory for the Tigers on Monday. Verlander pitched eight innings and allowed both runs in easily outdueling Ivan Nova on the night. Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera homered off Nova, who ended up…

    Rangers 11, Angels 10: Holy schnikes! The Angels jumped out to a 6-0 lead and the fans were booing Yu Darvish and the local nine. Then the comeback. Make that the comebacks. Four runs in the fifth and then single runs in the eighth and ninth to force extras. Then, down by three in the…

  9. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke likes career-long outfielder Corey Hart at first base

    Aug 1, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    corey hart getty

    Mat Gamel got hurt and Taylor Green didn’t hit, so the Brewers turned to Corey Hart as Prince Fielder‘s replacement at first base and … well, manager Ron Roenicke likes it a lot. Hart had started just two career games at first base prior to this season–compared to nearly 7,000 innings as an outfielder–but he’s…

  10. Tigers get Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante from Marlins

    Jul 23, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    While the baseball world waits to see if Ryan Dempster to the Braves actually happens, the Marlins and Tigers have pulled off an even bigger trade. Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that Miami is sending right-hander Anibal Sanchez and infielder Omar Infante to Detroit. According to his colleage Ken Rosenthal the Marlins will get pitching…

  11. Prince Fielder: “I just don’t know how to slide”

    Jul 20, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels v Detroit Tigers

    Tom Fornelli of South Side Asylum captured some wonderfulness from yesterday’s Tigers-Angels game. RIP, Maicer Izturis: What say you about that “slide,” Prince Fielder? “I just don’t know how to slide,” Fielder said after the game. “I’m trying to get there. I just want to be safe. So, however I can get there, I just try…

  12. Prince Fielder wins his second Home Run Derby crown

    Jul 9, 2012, 11:15 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder Getty

    We made it, you guys. Another Home Run Derby is in the rear view mirror, as Prince Fielder defeated Jose Bautista in the finals tonight to take home this year’s crown. It was Fielder’s second Home Run Derby win, the other coming back in 2009 in St. Louis. Ken Griffey, Jr., who won in 1994, 1998 and…

  13. Mark Trumbo is your Home Run Derby favorite

    Jul 9, 2012, 5:03 PM EDT

    Mark Trumbo

    With Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium serving as the battleground, Monday’s Home Run Derby figured to yield fewer souveniers than usual. Kauffman is one of the game’s tough home run parks. Using Stats Inc. park factors, only Minnesota’s Target Field played tougher on home runs for AL parks  from 2009-11 and that only slightly. It’s played…

  14. American League All-Star lineup has Derek Jeter leading off, Josh Hamilton batting third

    Jul 9, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    American League manager Ron Washington officially announced Justin Verlander as his starter at today’s press and also revealed his lineup, which features Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter leading off, Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton batting third, and Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista cleaning up: 1. Derek Jeter, SS 2. Robinson Cano, 2B 3. Josh Hamilton, LF 4.…

  15. Andrew McCutchen gets Home Run Derby call

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:26 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen

    Andrew McCutchen is going up against the big boys. The Pirates center fielder, who is listed at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, was named as Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement in Monday’s Home Run Derby. McCutchen is tied for sixth in the National League with 16 homers this season, putting him on pace to smash his previous high…

    New York Mets manager Collins congratulates Wright on hitting a walk off single to beat the Philadelphia Phillies in their MLB National League baseball game at Citi Field in New York

    Mets 6, Phillies 5: The R.A. Dickey vs. Cole Hamels matchup didn’t pan out as some expected, but David Wright took care of things, going 3 for 5 with four RBI including the game winner. Cardinals 6, Rockies 2: Lance Lynn had been skidding but the Rockies cured his ills. The Rockies cure everyone’s ills.…

  17. GIF of the day: Everyone was right about Detroit’s defense

    Jul 5, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    D_Fence

    Earlier this season I posted some snarky tweet about how few things in life have ever lived up to the hype as much as the Tigers’ terrible defense, which predictably led to tons of Tigers fans telling me that defense hadn’t actually hurt the team very much. Or something, I mostly just remember that there…

  18. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

  20. The final AL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler. Downballot, we see A-Rod passing Evan Longoria for third place at third base, a flip-flop…

  21. AL All-Star balloting update: Jose Bautista joins the leaders

    Jun 18, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    The latest American League ballot totals are in and the red-hot Jose Bautista has moved into third place in the outfielder voting, with Nelson Cruz dropping out of the lineup to fifth place. Bautista had the AL’s highest vote total last year, but his slow start guarantees he won’t duplicate that feat this year. Instead, it looks…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

    The league just announced the latest in the All-Star Game voting for the American League. Here’s where it stands.

  24. 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…

    The first vote-tallies have been released from the All-Star Game. Gentlemen, start your outrage! Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp are Major League Baseball’s top overall vote-getters in the first balloting figures for the 83rd All-Star Game … Hamilton, a four-time A.L.
