During last night’s Tigers 4-0 loss to the Angels, manager Brad Ausmus was ejected in the third inning by every Tigers fan favorite umpire Jim Joyce. The reason for Ausmus’ second career ejection as a manager was for continuing to argue a call that was apparently supported by instant replay and given a final rule upon.

Tigers prospect Steven Moya is tearing up Double-A pitching

DETROIT -- The future is up for grabs in the outfield for the Detroit Tigers. They don't have an outfielder signed beyond the 2015 season, and it's anyone's guess how the position group will shake out in the years to come. But there's one thing you can count on: Steven Moya will be part of it. Moya's play in spring training forced the Tigers to consider him for...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: a philosophical debate

So far, the Detroit Tigers have yet to pull the trigger on an apparently inevitable trade deadline move to shore up their bullpen.
