PHIL COKE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Phil Coke on Mariano’s Long-Toss Cutter

Phil Coke, who joined the Blue Jays bullpen today, has traded in his slider for a cutter. I’ll write more on that in this Sunday’s Notes column. Tonight, I’ll share something the lefty reliever told me that seems hard to believe. Then again, the person he was talking about was no mere mortal on a […]

Detroit Tigers: projecting the 2015 opening day roster

The Detroit Tigers are resting comfortably atop the AL Central standings here at the All-Star break. Their 53-38 record is good enough for the 3rd best winning percentage in the big leagues, trailing only Oakland and the LA Angels. With a 6.5 game lead in the standings, the Tigers will begin working toward their inevitable October playoff date. GM Dave Dombrowski will almost assuredly...

Tigers Notes: Phil Coke has revived career

DETROIT -- Phil Coke has become a baseball Lazarus. The left-handed reliever's career appeared to be all but dead with the Detroit Tigers after April, when he had a 8.10 ERA. That rose to 9.39 in May, and it was still a gaudy 6.56 after giving up three runs to the Minnesota Twins on June 14. But since then, Coke has been about as good as it gets. In his last seven outings, Coke has...

How will the Tigers use Phil Coke?

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers are sticking with Phil Coke for now. The veteran left-hander gave up three runs in the ninth inning Tuesday night to the Chicago White Sox, who made it close after left-handed slugger Adam Dunn drilled a two-run homer off Coke with two outs. Coke has a 13.50 ERA and batters are hitting .400 off him, but he remains in the bullpen rather than being replaced...

Detroit Tigers: what is the CUPCM stat?

Phil Coke entered Tuesday night’s win for the Detroit Tigers in the 9th inning with the simple job of holding the fort down as the team was sitting comfortably on an 8-3 lead. What better time to give the embattled lefty a chance to get some safe outs. Or not. Coke looked masterful in striking the first two hitters (Leury Garcia and Jordan Danks) out on nice sinking fastballs....

Detroit Tigers: Phil Coke’s gotta go

For the Detroit Tigers, in a year of roster transition, it is paramount to have players on the roster that are of a ‘winning’ caliber. This sounds so obvious, yet somehow Phil Coke has masterfully eluded being cut from the Tigers for years. It’s actually somewhat hard to believe that this is Coke’s 5th season with the team. And in those five years he has had exactly one significant...

Tigers re-sign Phil Coke to one-year deal

One day after making a huge trade, Dave Dombrowski was back to work with a smaller move Thursday morning. The Tigers announced that they have re-signed left-handed reliever Phil Coke to a one-year contract. Coke had been eligible for arbitration. Coke finished 2012 as Detroit's postseason closer, replacing Jose Valverde, and his glove-hurling celebration as the Tigers won the ALCS...
