8/30/2016 | Jones promoted as Tigers option McGehee

JaCoby Jones climbed the prospect rankings in the Tigers system as a combination center fielder and third baseman. With Cameron Maybin sidelined and Nick Castellanos on the disabled list, it appears the Tigers are going to give him a chance to be a little bit of both.


8/30/2016 | Timing is everything: Salty continues to be clutch

The out-of-town scoreboard at Comerica Park, nestled inside the high wall in right-center field, looks so far away from home plate that it might actually be out of town. So, while Jarrod Saltalamacchia thought he had a go-ahead home run on contact with Nate Jones' 97-mph eighth-inning fastball in Monday night's 4-3 win, he watched the White Sox outfielders just to make sure.


8/29/2016 | Salty HR saves Tigers, spoils Shields' start for Sox

8/29/2016 | Maybin aggravates thumb, scheduled for MRI

8/29/2016 | White Sox try to solve Norris, make up ground

The Tigers are looking to keep pace in a tight American League Wild Card race, while the White Sox continue to try to make up significant ground. The Sox could be in for a tough test Tuesday night against Tigers starter Daniel Norris, who threw 10 scoreless innings in two outings against them last season.


8/29/2016 | Kinsler down from top spot for first time in 2016

The view from the top of the Tigers' batting order has been a scenic one this season for Ian Kinsler, who entered Monday ranked fifth in the American League in runs scored. The last few weeks, however, the numbers haven't been all that pretty.


8/29/2016 | Castellanos able to put on glove, play catch

When most injured players begin playing catch, the emphasis is on stretching out the distance on throws to strengthen the arm. For Nick Castellanos and his fractured left hand, simply catching a ball is a step in the right direction.


8/28/2016 | Tigers not making most of stretch at home

Jose Valdez pitched in seven games for the Tigers last year, spending 38 days with the club. He dropped to Double-A Erie this season when Detroit designated him for assignment at the end of May. Yet as he finished the eighth inning for the Angels in Sunday's 5-0 Tigers loss, fielding a Miguel Cabrera grounder and firing to first, he celebrated by whirling and pumping his fist on his way off the field at Comerica Park.


8/28/2016 | Angels blank Tigers on 4 hits to win series

8/28/2016 | Shields, Boyd to open set for AL Central rivals

Take away games played by the White Sox against the Tigers, Indians and Royals this season, totaling an 11-26 mark, and the South Siders would be in the thick of the 2016 American League postseason race. Unfortunately, those are the AL Central teams the White Sox need to beat most, meaning they are basically left on the outskirts of contention and in a spoiler role over these final five weeks. Their work begins Monday night at Comerica Park in Detroit.


8/28/2016 | Ausmus keeping an eye on playoff races

Brad Ausmus experienced the tension of a postseason race from the managerial side in his first season as a skipper two years ago. Going through the motions down the stretch without it last year gave him a taste of life on the other end of the standings.


8/28/2016 | McCann watches his words with umpires

The Tigers had a lot of issues with home-plate umpire Mike Everitt's strike zone Saturday night. The Tiger with seemingly the biggest reason to complain had some of the fewest words for the umpire.

8/27/2016 | Angels snap frustrated Tigers' winning streak

Three months after Michael Fulmer took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning against the Angels, they exacted their revenge with a Kaleb Cowart two-run homer and the stingy pitching of Brett Oberholtzer and Jhoulys Chacin, ending the Tigers' five-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Saturday night at Comerica Park.


8/27/2016 | V-Mart, J.D., Ausmus, Joyner ejected in 4-inning span

What began with a called third strike on James McCann became a long, antagonistic night between the Tigers and home-plate umpire Mike Everitt, who ejected designated hitter Victor Martinez, hitting coach Wally Joyner, manager Brad Ausmus and right fielder J.D. Martinez in a four-inning span of the Tigers' 3-2 loss to the Angels on Saturday at Comerica Park.


8/27/2016 | K-Rod knows how to adjust for four-out saves

Francisco Rodriguez recorded his 31st career save of four or more outs when he finished off the Angels on Friday night. For Rodriguez, they're almost like 62 different outings.


8/27/2016 | PLAY campaign educates young Tigers fans

Around 100 kids took to the field at Comerica Park on Saturday morning, as the national PLAY (Promoting a Lifetime of Activity for Youth) campaign made a stop in Detroit. The PLAY campaign was formed to fight childhood obesity among American kids.


8/27/2016 | Upton on one of his tears since mental break
