The Detroit Tigers just wrapped up their introductory press conference for new president of baseball operations Scott Harris, and it to be quite frank, it couldn’t have gone any better. Harris sounded smart, confident, and humble, all at the same time. He seemed very well-organized and conducted himself in a manner that was extremely likeable.
Dear Detroit Tigers chairman and CEO Chris Ilitch, Last week, I wrote a piece about how I thought the GM search you were running reeked of incompetence. You tend to keep things pretty close to the vest, but what little information that was released to the public was not very encouraging. It seemed that you…
After a little over a month’s worth of searching, with little firm reports of who the organization was actually interesting in, the Detroit Tigers finally have their new front office leader in former Giants’ GM Scott Harris, who will hold the title of president of baseball operations.
The Detroit Tigers announced big news on Monday, shifting the course of the team’s rebuild for the long run. The team went out and grabbed their new president of baseball operations in a move that brought Scott Harris over from the San Francisco Giants.

The Detroit Tigers are hiring Giants’ GM Scott Harris to be their new president of baseball operations, first reported by ESPN’s Jeff Passan. It caught pretty much everyone by surprise, as he had not been previously linked to the Tigers front office opening.
The Detroit Tigers have officially hired a replacement for Al Avila. News recently broke on Twitter, from Jeff Passan, that the Tigers got their guy. According to reports, the Detroit Tigers have gone out and hired Scott Harris to serve as their team’s baseball operations president.
Needless to say, it’s been a very disappointing first year with the Detroit Tigers for Javier Baez. He has not lived up the $20 million that he will make this season. But the month of September has been much better for the 29-year-old.
The Detroit Tigers have gotten the most from their bullpens. They are starting to establish who will be a part of this team’s core moving forward. Jason Foley has been one of those arms who is really proving a point with his performance in 2022.
Congratulations to Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals on breaking the MLB record for most regular season starts together by a pitcher and catcher. With their 325th start on September 15, 2022, the Cards’ battery topped the former Detroit Tigers duo of ace lefty hurler Mickey Lolich and trusty receiver Bill…
The Detroit Tigers have released their Arizona Fall League (AFL) rosters, and there are plenty of noteworthy names to watch, but one of the Tigers’ prospects is hoping for a chance for redemption this fall. The prospect is infielder Colt Keith who got hurt earlier this summer.
The Detroit Tigers took a flier on Victor Reyes back in 2017 during the Rule 5 Draft, and he has stuck around. He has been finding his way into games ever since, patrolling the outfield and trying to find his footing.
When the Detroit Tigers signed Jonathan Schoop to a two-year, $15 million extension before the end of last season, it seemed like a good move at the time. Schoop had been a steady 2-2.5 WAR player who can hit for power, and at second base, that’s really all you need.
The Detroit Tigers have gotten solid performances out of several unlikely places in 2022. Injuries have been a real problem for this team’s pitching staff, causing them to end up nearly 20 pitchers deep down their depth chart in terms of starters.
One aspect of the Detroit Tigers’ performance in 2022 that has shined is the team’s bullpen. They have seen their bullpen come out and shine when called upon. For the most part, the bullpen has been able to get the job done when needed.
In the bottom of the eighth inning of yesterday’s game against the Houston Astros, Detroit Tigers outfielder Riley Greene stepped up to the plate with a runner on first and two outs. He worked a 3-0 count, got the green light, and smacked a fastball 424 feet to dead center. Surely this resulted in a…
The Detroit Tigers have to be thrilled with the output from Riley Greene, who has broken onto the big-league scene. He has been exceptional for the Tigers in many aspects, not just his performance in the batters’ box since making his debut.
The Detroit Tigers went out and selected Jace Jung with the 12th overall pick in the 2022 MLB First-Year Amateur Draft. This was the last first-round pick out of Al Avila before he was fired last month in August.
When Al Avila was fired back on Aug. 10, Detroit Tigers principal owner Chris Ilitch said he made the move then, as opposed to after the season, to get a head start on the GM search. While history would tell you a much different story, there was just a sliver of hope that Ilitch was…
Coming into the 2022 season, the big-time news from Chris Ilitch surrounding the Detroit Tigers organization was that he proclaimed the rebuild to be over. With a couple of big signings this past offseason in Javier Báez and Eduardo Rodríguez, the feeling was the rebuild was ending.
