TIGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Tigers have to figure out Cleveland if they’re going to contend in October

The Tigers’ starting rotation can’t keep the Indians off the board, and that’s a problem. DETROIT — The Indians have unequivocally had the Tigers’ number in 2016.

Anibal Sanchez’s return to the Tigers rotation is a quick failure

Anibal Sanchez had an audition for a spot in the Detroit Tigers rotation on Saturday evening. It didn’t go well. Sanchez’s second pitch, a splitter to Carlos Santana, was hammered deep into the right-field stands. His tenth pitch, a curveball to Francisco Lindor, ended up in almost exactly the same spot. The 15th pitch was a sinker to Jose Ramirez, and Mike Aviles made a leaping...

Miguel Cabrera’s Curious Splits

Baseball never lacks for intriguing story lines. There is always a player breaking out and there is always a player declining. There are Cinderella teams and disappointing collapses. In this sport, you can always find something new and exciting to watch. But this post isn’t about those expectation defying feats. On the contrary, this post is about the predictable and reliable...

Detroit Tigers trade rumors: Xavier Cedeno edition

The Detroit Tigers currently sit over .500 and well within reach of earning a playoff spot by the end of the season. Given their position in the standings, the team should plan on being buyers at the July 31 Trade Deadline this year, rather than sellers like they were last year. While there are not major upgrades needed, there is always room for improvement and pitching and defense...

J.D. Martinez Broke His Elbow

J.D. Martinez broke his elbow Friday night, leaving an already depleted Tigers outfield even further depleted. Martinez is expected to miss 4-6 weeks according to MLB.com, and the team has called up Steven Moya to replace Martinez in the lineup. If Moya can be the best version of himself, the Tigers might not actually miss Martinez all that much. Now, that seems like a ridiculous...
