Julio Teheran was also transferred to the 60-day IL to make room on the 40-man roster for Núñez.

The Tigers got some bad news on Sunday morning as Miguel Cabrera was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left biceps strain. To take his place on the roster, the Tigers selected the contract of Renato Núñez’s from their taxi squad.

Additionally, Julio Teheran has been moved to the 60-day injured to make room for Núñez on the Tigers’ 40-man roster. This...

Detroit at Cleveland Preview: Tigers look to salvage the road series on Sunday

Kirthmon F. Dozier via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Detroit came up short in the first two games of the weekend set and needs a win to prevent the sweep.

Things have not gone to plan in the first two games of the Detroit Tigers’ road series against the Cleveland Indians. They dropped Saturday night’s tilt by a score of 11-3 after another paltry performance both on the mound and at bat. There is no way to sugarcoat the fact that this team is not inspiring much confidence at the moment, as...

Cleveland 11, Tigers 3: Burn the tape

The Tigers dropped their third straight game, but this one was simply a disaster on both sides of the ball.

There was a baseball game played in Cleveland tonight, and the Detroit Tigers did not win it. A rough night to say the least, the Indians broke out for a 11-3 victory thanks to five mammoth home runs. Meanwhile, the bats of the Tigers can’t seem to figure out how to turn the parking break off. During their current three game losing streak, the Tigers...

Julio Teheran hits the 10-day IL, Alex Lange recalled

Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images

At least until Spencer Turnbull returns, Michael Fulmer appears set to rejoin the rotation.

Fears about Julio Teheran were confirmed on Saturday, as the Detroit Tigers placed the veteran starting pitcher on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to April 7, with what is described as a right shoulder strain. In his place, top relief prospect Alex Lange has been recalled from the Toledo alternate site to take his place. As a result, it appears that Michael...

Tigers at Cleveland Preview: Detroit looks to bounce back behind Tarik Skubal

The Tigers send a top prospect to the mound for his second outing of the season against a familiar foe.

Well Tigers fans, Friday night’s game was a bit of a bummer as Julio Teheran had to be replaced at the last minute by fellow newcomer Derek Holland as Detroit’s starting pitcher against the Cleveland Indians, and despite a commendable effort on his part as well as solid outings from Buck Farmer and Michael Fulmer, Detroit simply fell...

Cleveland 4, Tigers 1: Bats quiet on an unexpected bullpen day

After Julio Teheran was scratched, the bullpen had a tall task ahead of them on short notice, and their teammates did little to assist.

A ten game road trip that will take the Detroit Tigers to Houston and Oakland next, began in Cleveland on Friday night, and it didn’t go too well. Zach Plesac dominated the Tigers bats on a night when the pitching staff needed some help, and they fell 4-1.

Signs were not auspicious for the Tigers from the start. Schedule...

BYB Podcast 99: Akil Baddoo and the new look Tigers had a fun week

The BYB staff talks baseball from a Tigers perspective.

We’re back with a look at a whole lot of fun action from the Tigers and around the league, from MLB’s opening week. We’ll start with Tigers talk. Miggy in the snow. The legend of Akil Baddoo. A pretty good first six outings for the rotation. Matthew Boyd off to a good start. Michael Fulmer as reliever. Gregory Soto’s dominance but for one spectacularly errant pitch.

Tigers vs. Cleveland Preview: Teheran against Plesac once again

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Julio Teheran and the Tigers defeated Plesac and the Cleveland Baseball Team 5-2 on Saturday.

One week ago, the Detroit Tigers and the Cleveland Baseball Team squared off on in an Opening Weekend series. The Tigers, despite their woes against Cleveland over the past few years, emerged victorious, eeking out two close games by a total margin of four runs, and losing one game by six runs (on the bright side, it wasn’t as bad as their nine-run loss on Monday)....

Detroit Tigers' offseason reviewed

This team is not likely to compete this season, they’re more-or-less the unanimous pick to finish last in the AL Central, but it’s arguable that even a month or two of competitive play could prove beneficial to the young roster.

Twins 3, Tigers 2: The Tigers had their chances

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Unfortunate to waste a good performance from the pitching staff.

If you’d told us Matthew Boyd and the Tigers pen would hold the Minnesota Twins’ high powered offense to three runs, we would have liked our chances. Unfortunately, the Tigers ran into two outs at home plate that cost them, and they lost 3-2. Their record stands at .500 through the first two series of the season.

Boyd was good in this one, and he was also efficient. Through the first four innings,...

But can the Tigers offense get to a top-shelf pitcher in Kenta Maeda?

Day three of Operation: Stop Nelson Cruz is a go. Sure, day one may have been a complete failure, but some Akil Baddoo magic made day two of the operation a success. It’s a difficult operation, should you choose to accept it.

The Twins in general are tough, favored by many to win the AL Central and extend their two year reign over the division. Between them and the...
