White Sox 3, Tigers 0/Tigers 4, White Sox 1: Split the difference

The Tigers played a tough double header today and manage to come up with a win.

Anyone who looked at the pitchers for today would have likely assumed Michael Fulmer would be the Tigers’ pitcher to come away with a win. But it was actually Buck Farmer, making a spot start from Triple-A Toledo who was the winner of the day.

It was a rough day for the Tigers overall. Just when it seemed like they might repay the White Sox for their shut out, the bullpen collapsed in the ninth inning and the...

Tigers fall in G1 despite Fulmer's 8-inning CG

Tyler Danish might not have been quite as dominant as his mound counterpart, Michael Fulmer, but the rookie still pitched well enough to claim his first big league victory in a 3-0 White Sox win over the Tigers during Game 1 of a doubleheader Saturday at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Former Tigers’ pitcher Jim Bunning has passed away

The All-Star pitcher and former Senator was 85.

Jim Bunning, former Detroit Tigers pitcher, passed away Friday, May 26 at the age of 85.

Though Jim Bunning may be best remembered for the tail end of his playing years spent with the Philadelphia Phillies, he began his Hall of Fame career in Detroit. He spent nine years with the Tigers. He made his major league debut for the Tigers on July 20, 1955, and remained with the team until 1963. His record with the Tigers was a whopping 118 wins and...

Hamstring strain lands Kinsler on 10-day DL

The Tigers have been hit hard by their schedule this week, wrapping up the weekend with four games in the span of about 48 hours. However, their biggest blow from this two-city road trip won't be from a lack of sleep. Detroit will be without a major cog in its lineup and middle infield, as the club placed second baseman Ian Kinsler on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Tigers’ Ian Kinsler placed on 10-day disabled list

Additionally, relief pitcher Chad Bell has been optioned to Toledo.

As the Tigers prepare for a weekend double header against the Chicago White Sox, the news out of the clubhouse isn’t good. Tiger’s second baseman Ian Kinsler—who was benched briefly earlier this month for a hamstring issue—has been placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Kinsler, who sat out the bulk of Friday’s game in preparation for the Saturday double header, was previously out for five games. It seems likely he...

Tigers vs. White Sox Preview: Detroit looks to stop losing skid in doubleheader

If it doesn’t rain again, that is.

Last season, the Tigers endured one of the worst stretches of their season in early May. Following a road sweep against the Cleveland Indians, the Tigers were also swept at home by the Texas Rangers. They then proceeded to lose five of their next six games in an East Coast road swing against the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles. Brad Ausmus’ job was reportedly in jeopardy, and the Tigers fell 8 1?2 games out of the division race.

While they...

Tigers Place Ian Kinsler On DL, Designate William Cuevas

The Tigers announced this morning that they’ve placed second baseman Ian Kinsler on the 10-day DL with a left hamstring strain. In addition, they’ve optioned lefty Chad Bell to Triple-A Toledo, recalled outfielder JaCoby Jones from Toledo, purchased the contract of righty Arcenio Leon and designated righty William Cuevas for assignment.

Ian Kinsler Placed on 10-Day DL with Hamstring Injury

The Detroit Tigers placed second baseman Ian Kinsler on the 10-day disabled list Saturday because of a left hamstring strain.

Tigers PR announced the roster move on Twitter.        

The infielder has battled through hamstring issues for most of May. It's unclear whether he had a serious setback in Friday night's 8-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field or if the team merely decided to let him rest so the ailment doesn't linger all season.

Kinsler may no longer be the...

Command eludes Boyd in loss to Chicago

Tigers left-hander Matthew Boyd admits that not every pitch can be perfect. But of the 100 he threw Friday night, there's just one imperfect pitch that stuck in his mind.

Tigers unable to slow slugging Sox

Farmer set to open doubleheader vs. Sox

A twin bill means an extra roster spot for big league clubs, which the White Sox and Tigers will each put to full use Saturday as they send Tyler Danish and Buck Farmer -- each up in the bigs as the 26th man -- to the bump at Guaranteed Rate Field. Farmer will pitch in the first game of the doubleheader for Detroit, while Danish will take Game 2 for Chicago.

Avila homers, but Tigers are outslugged by Sox

Mike Pelfrey allowed one unearned run over five innings, as he defeated his previous employer from Detroit in an 8-2 White Sox victory Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. The first game of a planned Friday doubleheader was postponed and moved to Saturday due to inclement weather, and the nightcap's first pitch was delayed 1 hour, 25 minutes.

White Sox 8, Tigers 2: Blame it on the rain

The pitching, offense, and defense all looked a little soggy.

Maybe it’s for the best the Tigers didn’t play a double header today, because if the delayed night game was any indication, this was not a good day to play two. The Tigers dropped the first game of four with a score of 8-2.

The Tigers looked sloppy and uncertain, making ugly plays, weak at-bats, and repeating the Matthew Boyd start we witnessed during the first Sox series in April. In order words: it wasn’t great. Worse...

Detroit Tigers may only have until July to avoid selling

Not so surprising, but the timing of the report has a little juice.

The Detroit Tigers’ decision to try to contend in 2017 has remained a contentious one. Whether the offseason deals they were looking for simply didn’t materialize, as seems likely, or if they have remained open to actually going for it if the team performed well, is still somewhat difficult to parse. What has remained clear, is the Tigers organization decided to remain flexible, and let the team performance, and the...

Tigers to reportedly sell off veterans if they don’t turn it around

Entering play on May 26, the Detroit Tigers sit at 22-24. If a turnaround does not happen in the near future, the Tigers may look a lot different at year’s end. According to a report from Jon Morosi, Detroit has given itself until the end of June to get a winning record. If that doesn’t happen, any and all veterans could be on the move. Of course, in some cases, trades will be easier said than done. Ace pitcher Justin Verlander, for example, has a no-trade clause in his contract. Miguel...
