  1. Fernando Rodney replaces David Price on the American League All-Star roster

    Jul 12, 2014, 10:05 PM EDT

    Fernando Rodney

    The American League has added a reliever rather than a starter with David Price giving up his spot on the roster for the All-Star Game.

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

    Jul 7, 2014, 5:00 AM EDT

    Corey Kluber

    It’s Corey Kluber’s world. We’re all just living in it. We had no idea we were, though, because most of us don’t pay a heck of a lot of attention to Corey Kluber. Like, how are we supposed to know it’s his world anyway? What are we, psychic? Put up a sign.

  3. Chris Sale, Anthony Rizzo among those on the All-Star Game Final Vote list

    Jul 6, 2014, 8:07 PM EDT

  5. Rick Porcello’s 0-walk, 0-strikeout shutout was miraculous

    Jul 2, 2014, 7:46 PM EDT

    Rick Porcello

    It had been almost 25 years since a pitcher had thrown a shutout without walking anyone or striking out anyone. Then Rick Porcello did it and showed what the game could look like.

    In today’s regretfully abbreviated version of ATH, a couple of usual scoreless performances.

  7. Rick Porcello throws second consecutive shutout

    Jul 1, 2014, 10:04 PM EDT

    rick porcello getty

    Tigers righty Rick Porcello didn’t record a shutout over the first 163 starts of his major league career. Now he has two shutouts in the past six days.

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

    Jun 27, 2014, 6:51 AM EDT

    Chase Utley

    Dear Chase: I feel like I can call you Chase because you and me are so alike. I’d like to meet you one day, it would be great to have a catch. I know I can’t throw as fast as you but I think you’d be impressed with my speed.

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

    May 30, 2014, 6:48 AM EDT

    Josh Collmeter

    A gem from Josh Collmenter, an ugly dud from the Braves and a horrible, horrible bit of stream of consciousness from me about what would happen if the season ended today.

  10. Rick Porcello’s next start pushed back to Saturday

    May 18, 2014, 9:20 PM EDT

    Rick Porcello

    The Tigers’ right-hander, off to a fantastic start in his first eight starts, will get some extra rest and start on Saturday instead of Thursday.

  11. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 13, 2014, 5:49 AM EDT

    Cubs Celebrate

    The Cubs give Travis Wood more run support in this game than Jeff Samardzija has had in his eight starts combined this year.

  12. Justin Verlander, not Cy Young winner Max Scherzer, will start Opening Day for the Tigers

    Mar 17, 2014, 11:51 AM EDT

    Justin Verlander Getty

    Max Scherzer is the reigning American League Cy Young winner, but he won’t be starting for the Tigers until the second game of the season. Rookie manager Brad Ausmus has decided on Justin Verlander as the Opening Day starter. No surprise, really. As great as Scherzer was last season–going 21-3 with a 2.90 ERA and…

  13. Jose Iglesias to begin the year on the disabled list

    Mar 14, 2014, 9:53 AM EDT

    Jose Iglesias

    Rick Porcello was probably the happiest guy in the world when the Tigers traded for shortstop Jose Iglesias last season. A groundball pitcher matched up with a top-notch defensive shortstop is the stuff that dreams are made of. Sadly for both of them, however, they won’t be together to kick off the season. Lynn Henning of…

  14. Dombroski: Tigers aren’t interested in trading Rick Porcello

    Mar 9, 2014, 7:10 PM EDT

    Rick Porcello Getty

    Refuting recent reports that the Tigers were taking offers on starter Rick Porcello, GM Dave Dombroski told the media that the team isn’t interested in trading any starting pitching and hasn’t fielded any offers on their pitching, per Tony Paul of the Detroit News. Porcello has been the subject of trade rumors for a while…

  15. Ranking the rotations: 2014 edition

    Feb 5, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg

    I’ll be dipping into my Rotoworld player projections from time to time for HBT posts. Here’s the first of this year: my ranking of each five-man rotation as we head into 2014. Before actually posting my 1-30, I’ll start with my raw ERA rankings by league. A couple of qualifications: I’m only using the top…

  16. Reds VP Bob Miller on the arbitration process: “It works poorly”

    Jan 17, 2014, 8:55 PM EDT

    Mike Leake

    The Reds avoided arbitration with starter Mike Leake and relievers Sam LeCure and Alfredo Simon earlier today, but were not able to do so with starter Homer Bailey and flame-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman. As a guest on The C Dot Show earlier, Reds vice president Bob Miller (who handles the arbitration cases for the club)…

  17. Nationals acquire Doug Fister from Tigers

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:31 PM EDT

    doug fister getty

    UPDATE: It’s done. The Nationals just announced that prospect left-hander Robbie Ray will also be sent to Detroit. So it’s Fister for Ray, Krol, and Lombardozzi. Interesting. Ray has really improved his stock as a prospect over the past year, but it’s surprising that the Nationals were able to acquire Fister without giving up a…

  18. Tigers will be hard-pressed to make big signing this winter

    Nov 3, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Five

    The Tigers have made a habit of big splashes in the offseasons. Three years ago, it was Victor Martinez. Then Prince Fielder. Last winter, the Tigers signed both Anibal Sanchez and Torii Hunter. Those deals have helped them reach the postseason each year, but the ultimate prize has remained out of reach. As the Tigers…

  19. If only Jim Leyland hadn’t been so hands on

    Oct 20, 2013, 1:32 AM EDT

    ALDS Tigers Athletics Baseball

    Tigers manager Jim Leyland spent the first four months of this season with two reliable relievers: left-hander Drew Smyly and right-hander Joaquin Benoit. Obviously, that’s less than ideal. But it did give him fewer chances to mess things up. And mess things up he did in the ALCS. With Jose Veras and Al Alburquerque at…

  20. Red Sox mount improbable comeback, walk off winners in Game 2 to even ALCS at 1-1

    Oct 13, 2013, 11:52 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Has the sleeping giant risen from his slumber? The Red Sox led the American League in on-base percentage, slugging percentage, and (of course) OPS during the regular season, but between Game 1 and the fifth inning of Game 2, they looked more like the Miami Marlins. They were no-hit through eight and two-thirds innings in…

  21. Austin Jackson must turn it around against Red Sox

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:05 AM EDT

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    The Tigers escaped the ALDS against the A’s despite scoring more than three runs just once in five games. They’re going to need to do better than that against the Red Sox, and it will have to start at the top with leadoff man Austin Jackson. Looking lost at the plate, Jackson went 0-for-5 with…

  22. That did not work out as Jim Leyland hoped

    Oct 6, 2013, 1:11 AM EDT

    ALDS Tigers Athletics Baseball

    Presented with a tough first-and-third with no outs situation in the bottom of the ninth Saturday in a scoreless Game 2 against the A’s, Tigers manager Jim Leyland. 1. Chose to forgo using his best reliever 2. Chose to walk the bases loaded 3. Chose not to use a five-man infield Obviously, none of that…

  23. Sonny Gray debunks need for playoff experience with stellar outing

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:42 AM EDT

    ALDS Tigers Athletics Baseball

    The ALDS Game 2 narrative between the Tigers and Athletics involved the experienced ace in Justin Verlander and the rookie in Sonny Gray. Verlander, with over 70 post-season innings under his belt, would be calm, cool, and collected with all the TV cameras pointed in his direction. Gray, who spent most of the year with…

  24. Athletics walk off victorious after hard-fought pitcher’s duel in Game 2 of ALDS

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    The Tigers and Athletics played what could very well end up being the best game of the entire post-season tonight as starters Justin Verlander and Sonny Gray took the hill in opposition. The two right-handers traded zeroes through seven innings, each allowing just four hits, each walking two or fewer, each striking out at least…

  25. ALDS Preview: Tigers vs. Athletics

    You can’t predict baseball, but you can at least lay out the parameters. So let’s take a look at what the Tigers and Athletics have in store for us in the American League Division Series.
