Cade Horton is a fascinating story. A former two-way player who has gone back and forth between hitting and pitching, he started Game 2 of the College World Series Finals against Ole Miss, striking out 13 batters—a College World Series Finals record. He would be an interesting project for the Detroit Tigers to take on.
The Detroit Tigers put on a fireworks show of their own for the Fourth of July in a series-opening doubleheader against the Cleveland Guardians at home which saw the good guys pull off a 4-1 early win followed by a 5-3 victory in the nightcap. Garrett Hill made his major league debut in the opening
“I’m very pleased with the progress of the Detroit Tigers”- owner Chris Ilitch After four consecutive seasons winning the American League’s Central Division from 2011 to 2014, owner Mike Ilitch let general manager Dave Dombrowski go as the 2015 season wound down. Al Avila was installed as general manager, with Chris Ilitch taking over as

After a solid 4-1 victory in game one, courtesy of a fine major league debut from Garrett Hill, the Tigers came out looking to sweep the doubleheader from their AL Central tormentors, the Cleveland Guardians. They got it done thanks to some timely hitting, power from Eric Haase, and a heck of a good job
Louisville Bats 6, Toledo Mud Hens 5 (box) After falling behind early in the series, the Bats rallied over the weekend, taking 2 of 3 to split the series with their 6-5 victory on Sunday. Elvin Rodriguez wasn’t very efficient, giving up three runs on seven hits over four innings of work. Jamie Westbrook brought

Monday’s Independence Day doubleheader against the Cleveland Gaardians marks the MLB debut of right-handed pitcher Garrett Hill. He’s the 6th Detroit Tigers player to debut on the 4th of July since 2000, joining Jeff Ferrell, Zach Miner, Dustin Molleken, Cody Ross, and Justin Verlander — who also happened to debut in a doubleheader against Cleveland.
Happy Independence Day folks. Hope our American readership has a good time today, and doesn’t manage to lose any digits to any tomfoolery, or accidentally fire a rocket into someone’s boat at a lake party. Not that we’ve ever witnessed such extravagances in person… With great freedoms, come great responsibilities. We’ll leave it at that
A brutal day from the Tigers’ pitching staff led them to a series loss against the Kansas City Royals. If you, like many fans, weren’t able to watch the game due to it to being exclusive to the Peacock streaming service, well you were better off in the end. Tarik Skubal’s recent trend of bad

Worse than the Detroit Tigers’ record this season, has been the lack of signs of hope over the first three months. The team that general manager Al Avila constructed was intriguing in the preseason because of numerous new faces who were supposed to be key building blocks to a future contending ballclub. Unfortunately, that group
True baseball fans don’t leave until the game is over. Forget about beating traffic or making a flight for the out-of-towners, it ain’t over until it’s over. Riley Greene proved that tonight with his first (and I’m sure there will be many more) home run that came with one out in a tie ballgame in
Does Detroit Tigers’ owner Chris Ilitch watch any of the games? Does he pay attention at all? Does he even care about this team? These are probably all rhetorical questions, but they are still worth asking after his tone-deaf comments yesterday.
The Detroit Tigers’ weekend homestand against the Kansas City Royals got off to a sluggish start on Friday night despite Michael Pineda’s return to the starting rotation, giving the team some much-needed quality innings. Ultimately, the offense sputtered out once again and AJ Hinch’s squad took the 3-1 loss that also saw rookie Spencer Torkelson
The Tigers bullpen blanked the Royals for four innings, but the offense wasted way too many chances as they dropped the first of a three-game home set against the Royals by a score of 3-1. Friday night marked the return of Michael Pineda to the Tigers’ rotation, and they sure do need him. With two
Resilience by the Detroit Tigers pitching staff might be the sole reason that their 2022 season has not gone from horrible to historic. Despite injuries to Kyle Funkhouser, Jose Cisnero, Andrew Chafin, Casey Mize, Matt Manning, and Michael Pineda, the team had gotten by, and even thrived in some respects, in the pitching department.
The Detroit Tigers wrapped up a modestly successful west coast road swing over the past week with a win over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday afternoon, 3-2, thanks to a two-run bomb by Eric Haase and a solid start from Rony “The San Francisco Treat” Garcia to split the two-game series in the Golden
