Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Jacob Turner made his return to the Tigers, the team he was selected by in the first round of the MLB draft in 2009. Turner has bounced around the league since, and his return to the Tigers was anything but a triumphant homecoming. Turner allowed seven runs (five earned) in just... Read More

Detroit Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario hit his 15th home run of the season as the Tigers fell to the Angels on Tuesday. The youngster also added two RBI on a double in the first inning, bringing his RBI total to 43 on the year. After a hot start to the season, Candelario has cooled... Read More

The Detroit Tigers have sent Mike Fiers to the Oakland Athletics for either two players to be named later or cash considerations. Fiers has been hot as of late, posting a 1.96 ERA over his last seven starts. In a corresponding move, the Tigers purchased the contract of Jacob Turner from Triple-A Toledo, and he... Read More

Detroit Tigers right fielder Nicholas Castellanos turned in a hitless performance on Sunday against Oakland, capping a miserable week of play for the slugger. Castellanos has managed just three singles over his last five games, adding up to a minuscule .143 average. In his defense, the entire Tiger offense has been silent as of late,... Read More

Blaine Hardy To Start Friday

The Detroit Tigers will send reliever-turned-spot-starter Blaine Hardy to the hill on Friday as the team takes on the Oakland Athletics. Hardy has started just 10 games on the year as a fill-in man for a rotation that has seen its share of injuries. With Michael Fulmer (oblique) on the 10-day disabled list, Hardy will... Read More

Shane Greene Logs 23rd Save

Detroit Tigers closer Shane Greene closed out Wednesday's victory with a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 23rd save of the season. Greene walked one batter and struck out one as well. He's allowed four earned runs since returning from the disabled list (shoulder) on July 13th, and has converted all but three save chances this... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Mike Fiers, who had been in the midst of quite a hot streak, was forced to exit early in Wednesday's contest after taking a line drive off the shin in the second inning. The X-rays on Fiers' leg came back negative and he is considered day-to-day, but likely won't miss his... Read More

Jose Iglesias Plates Three

Detroit Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias notched two hits and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Reds while adding a run scored for good measure. The solid day at the dish brings the veteran's average up to .268 on the year, and he's now reached safely in five of his last six games. Iglesias was... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Mike Fiers will start Wednesday against Cincinnati, and will be looking to build upon a stretch of six solid outings. The veteran has been excellent as of late, posting a 2.06 ERA over those last six starts while notching 28 strikeouts in 39 1/3 innings of work. Reds batters have just... Read More

The Detroit Tigers sent Leonys Martin to Cleveland in a deadline deal to acquire No. 8 prospect Willi Castro, and in doing so they've moved JaCoby Jones to the top of the list on their center field depth chart. Jones will see the majority of starts in center but may share time occasionally with Victor... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Matthew Boyd will take the hill at home Tuesday against the Reds, a team that beat him up handily in their only meeting earlier this season. On June 19, Boyd allowed five runs in just four innings of work, and was hurt badly by three walks and a Joey Votto grand... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Francisco Liriano made an appearance out of the bullpen on Sunday, tossing two innings of scoreless relief against the Indians. Liriano was called upon after Jordan Zimmermann lasted just the first three innings, and was available because Blaine Hardy had taken Liriano's spot in the rotation on Saturday as Liriano was... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann took the loss against Cleveland on Sunday, surrendering five runs in just three innings of work. The bulk of the damage came on home runs by Melky Cabrera and Yonder Alonso. With the loss, Zimmermann's record falls to 4-3 on the season. After a strong start to the month... Read More

Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez has mostly been disappointing this season, as the signs of old age have definitely shown themselves with regularity. But over the last week, the veteran slugger has been on a bit of a hot streak. His homer Friday off Carlos Carrasco was his second in the last five games,... Read More

Detroit Tigers pitcher Blaine Hardy will toe the rubber on Saturday, making just his 10th start of the season as the Tigers take on Cleveland. Hardy has bounced between the bullpen and the rotation, but has generally been the man called upon for spot-start situations when one of the regular rotation arms goes down. That's... Read More

Detroit Tigers right fielder Nicholas Castellanos added to his season totals in doubles and RBI on Friday as the Tigers fell to Cleveland. Castellanos drove a Carlos Carrasco pitch into the gap to log his 31st double of the season and his 57th RBI. Castellanos has seen his average dip below .300 recently, but he... Read More

Detroit Tigers right fielder Nicholas Castellanos came up empty against former Tiger Justin Verlander. The hard-hitting outfielder has been Detroit's best hitter all season, batting .305 with 15 homers, but he was hitless in four at-bats and fanned three times against JV. Castellanos was somehow left off the All Star team, so he'll get a... Read More

Detroit Tigers second baseman Niko Goodrum closed out his excellent first half on Sunday with a homer, his ninth of the season. The blast was a solo shot off Justin Verlander, and came in the sixth inning. The rookie now has 31 extra-base hits on the year and has turned himself into an everyday player.... Read More

Detroit Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario socked his 13th homer of the season in Sunday's contest against the Astros and former Tiger Justin Verlander. Candelario has been abysmal for about a month now, batting .149 over the last 30 games, but he's been on base in each of the last three games, which is at... Read More

Detroit Tigers right fielder Nicholas Castellanos continued his productive 2018 campaign by notching two hits and scoring a run Saturday against the Astros. There wasn't much else happening on the offensive side for the Tigers, who have lost 20 of their last 24 games. Despite the team's struggles, Castellanos is slashing .346/.452/.577 over the last... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Michael Fulmer struggled through 4 2/3 innings on Saturday against the Astros, allowing seven runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out two. After the game, Fulmer and catcher James McCann were critical of the small strike zone, arguing that many pitches in the zone and on the edges... Read More

Detroit Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario made his first appearance batting in the bottom third of the order on Friday, as he moved all the way down to the No. 8 position on the lineup card. The youngster impressed early with his plate discipline and ability to get on base, but has struggled mightily in... Read More

Detroit Tigers closer Shane Greene (shoulder) returned from the disabled list on Friday and worked a scoreless inning with two hits and a strikeout, though it was not a save situation. Manager Ron Gardenhire clearly wanted to get Greene some work as quickly as possible with his return to the team, but the Tiger offense couldn't... Read More

Detroit Tigers second baseman Niko Goodrum did his part as the Tigers rallied back multiple times against the Rays before eventually falling in extras. The rookie middle-infielder had two doubles and three RBI on the night, raising his season average to .253 and his RBI total to 30. Goodrum has been a nice surprise after... Read More

Detroit Tigers right fielder Nicholas Castellanos delivered three hits in a losing effort Monday as the Tigers fell to the Rays. Castellanos also scored three runs in the contest. Castellanos has been looked sharp all season, and especially over the past two weeks, in which he has hit .339 with six homers. Many would say... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Francisco Liriano took a beating at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, allowing seven runs in just 2 1/3 innings of work. The crafty veteran had exceeded everyone's expectations in the early parts of this season, but he's been on the decline for a while. Over his last... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Michael Fulmer did his best to keep the Tigers in the game Sunday, but the offense couldn't muster up any runs as Detroit fell to the Rangers. Fulmer hurled seven innings of three-run ball (two earned), striking out six and scattering five hits. Fulmer hasn't been the pitcher fantasy owners expected... Read More

Detroit Tigers outfielder and leadoff hitter Leonys Martin (hamstring) will not return to the lineup before the All Star break, manager Ron Gardenhire told reporters on Saturday. The veteran outfielder has been on the shelf since July 2, and could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo July 16-19, which would put him in line... Read More

Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez will get the day off on Sunday against Texas. Filling in as the designated hitter will be Nicholas Castellanos, who will hit second. With Castellanos moving to the DH slot, that means Victor Reyes will bat ninth and man right field. Reyes has limited fantasy value and can be... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Mike Fiers was going to have a tough time following the eight-inning gem he tossed in his last trip out, but he didn't disappoint on Saturday against the Rangers. The veteran righty fired six innings of one-run ball against Texas, striking out six and scattering five hits. Fiers has been hot... Read More
