From starter to gone in 2 days: Tyler Collins' value dwindled as slump persisted

A day ago, Tyler Collins was a regular starter, even batting second at times. On Sunday, he was swapped out for a minor-league journeyman hitting .213 in Triple-A. CHICAGO -- A day ago, Tyler Collins was a regular starter, even batting second at times, in a lineup that aspires to be one of the best in baseball. On Sunday, he was swapped out for a minor-league journeyman hitting .213 in Triple-A.

At the end of March, Alex Presley was on the verge of winning a spot on the Detroit Tigers Opening Day roster.

On Sunday, at the end of May, Presley was finally in the Tigers clubhouse, taking a path to get here that mirrored the ups and downs of his career. "It's not physical;...

Buck Farmer rides to rescue with career day, stopping Tigers' skid

He struck out 11, more than any other Detroit starter in 2017, as the Tigers beat the White Sox 4-3 in the second game of a doubleheader at Guaranteed Rate Field.

CHICAGO -- The Detroit Tigers had one of the game's top young pitchers going against a rookie fill-in starter in Game 1 and still couldn't get a win -- or even any runs. So that doesn't inspire confidence in Game 2. This time the Tigers have the fill-in starter (Buck Farmer), while the White Sox will counter with left-hander Derek Holland, who has pitched well in 2017.
