7/21/2014 | Miggy plays third in NL park to make room for V-Mart

Slugger Miguel Cabrera will get a small taste of the past during this week's Interleague series in Arizona. In order to get Victor Martinez, who usually is slotted in at DH, into the lineup, Brad Ausmus moved Cabrera to third base on Monday so Martinez could play first.


7/21/2014 | Former D-back Scherzer returns to Chase Field

Despite being traded in the three-team deal that sent Curtis Granderson to the Yankees, Max Scherzer doesn't hold any grudges toward the D-backs. Since he was dealt to the Tigers, he has blossomed from a prospect into a bona fide Major League ace.


7/21/2014 | Gibson maintains rooting interest in Tigers

D-backs manager Kirk Gibson still considers himself a Tigers fan. Except, of course, for this week when his team plays host to them. Gibson, a Michigan native, was drafted by the Tigers and played for them from 1979-1987 and from 1993-95.


7/21/2014 | Well-rested Anderson squares off against Tigers

7/20/2014 | Smyly quiets Indians to help Tigers end slide

7/20/2014 | V-Mart scuffling at plate to begin second half

7/20/2014 | Scherzer battles past pregame neck spasms

Max Scherzer threw a season-high 118 pitches Saturday night. For a minute, it was questionable whether he'd throw one. That's how serious of a concern the Tigers had about neck spasms that flared up as he was warming in the bullpen.


7/19/2014 | Tribe goes for series sweep of first-place Tigers

Josh Tomlin and Drew Smyly will duel in Sunday's finale at Comerica Park. The Indians have an opportunity to take four straight games from the Tigers, and trim a 7 1/2-game American League Central deficit at the start of the series to just 3 1/2 games on Sunday.


7/19/2014 | Nathan tagged in ninth as Tigers drop Game 2

Saturday, in the nightcap of a doubleheader, the Indians swept the day on the wings of Carlos Santana's ninth-inning three-run double off Joe Nathan. The clutch hit gave the Tribe a 5-2 win.


7/19/2014 | Replay confirms Brantley's double in first inning

With the bases empty, the Indians' Michael Brantley launched one off Comerica Park's right-field fence on Saturday night that appeared to hit right off the yellow line. It was ruled a live ball, and a 40-second crew chief review, initiated by Laz Diaz, confirmed that call.


7/19/2014 | Alburquerque unable to escape during Friday's jam

Al Alburquerque came within a pitch of pulling off the escape in Friday night's 9-3 loss to the Indians. He succumbed to the home run on the pitch that had kept the ball in the park for him so often to begin his career.

7/19/2014 | V-Mart returns with two hits, rare two K's

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus got his veteran cleanup hitter back during Friday's 9-3 loss to the Indians, with Victor Martinez's return from his back injury. He had an odd combination of stats in his first game since July 4.


7/19/2014 | Bullpen may be signifying need for reinforcements

The Tigers opened the unofficial second half of their schedule Friday with their Motown Night promotion, playing Motown classics between innings and during pitching changes. A seven-run seventh inning gave them a lot of the latter.


7/19/2014 | Tigers have Scherzer to close twin bill vs. Tribe

7/18/2014 | VerHagen to make MLB debut in twin bill opener

In the nightcap, the Tigers will start Max Scherzer opposite Zach McAllister.
