Detroit Tigers: Can JaCoby Jones seize left field job?

JaCoby Jones earned a spot on the Detroit Tigers’ roster as a bench player. He could now have a chance to secure a larger role. Back in the summer of 2015, the Detroit Tigers acquired JaCoby Jones from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for Joakim Soria. Jones made his big league debut for the Tigers […] Detroit Tigers: Can JaCoby Jones seize left field job? - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Tigers squander late lead, split doubleheader with Royals

After a walk-off win in game one, the Tigers blew a ninth inning lead to split a pair of 3-2 games with Kansas City. The Detroit Tigers were flying high for most of the day. They won the first game of their doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals 3-2 thanks to a walk-off home run from JaCoby Jones in the 10th inning. The win was their fourth in a row, moving them to 8-9 after a rough week against Cleveland and New York left them five games under .500. A sacrifice fly from Jones in game two gave the Tigers a 2-1 lead that they took into the ninth inning, just three outs from a .500...

Game 18 Preview: Royals at Tigers

Norris will make his first start of the season on Friday evening. Well, that was fun! The Tigers couldn’t get much going offensively in the first game of Friday’s doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals, but JaCoby Jones made some guy on Twitter look really dumb when he lined a fastball into the bullpen for a walk-off home run. He celebrated by cursing on live TV and telling Fox Sports Detroit’s Trevor Thompson that he was hungry. These are your 2018 Detroit Tigers. The Tigers will be hoping to double the fun in Friday’s nightcap against Kansas City. The game will feature...

JaCoby Jones hits walk-off home run, ‘makes s**t happen’

“I’m kinda hungry right now so I wanted to end it.” If anyone was wondering how JaCoby Jones is doing in his at-bats lately, he gave a pretty resounding answer with a walk-off home run against the Kansas City Royals in the first game of Friday’s doubleheader. It was clear to see Jones knew he’d hit it out of the park as his face lit up rounding the bases (don’t overlook Jeimer Candelario catching the flying batting helmet as Jones rounds on home plate).

JaCoby Jones takes steps forward at the plate

JaCoby Jones takes steps forward at the plate

Things appear to be looking up for him, but will it last? The Detroit Tigers had high hopes for JaCoby Jones when they acquired him from the Pittsburgh Pirates at the 2015 trade deadline. But despite success in the minors and solid defense in the majors, Jones struggled immensely at the plate during his first stints in Detroit, recording high strikeout rates with little power or ability to get on base. After posting a monster spring training in 2018 (.354/.415/.542, .957 OPS), there was hope that the first year of the rebuild would see Jones get some more reps with the Tigers to help him...

Controversial replay review overturns JaCoby Jones walk-off winner

Presumably MLB got it right, but it’s hard to stomach when it takes that long. Well, the season took an extra 24 hours to start, and then it looked like the Tigers’ Opening Day matchup against the Pittsburgh Pirates would never end. However, there was a brief glimmer of joy in the 10th inning, when it looked as though JaCoby Jones had walked off the Pirates with an RBI single to score Nicholas Castellanos. Sadly, after a truly interminable replay review the call of safe at home was overturned. Welcome to your 2018 Tigers. In the end, we all want the umpires to get calls right. That’s...

POLL: Who will be the Tigers’ 2018 Rookie of the Year?

Many of the top prospects have already surpassed their limits. During the recording of a recent episode of the Bless You Boys podcast, we found ourselves stumped by what seemed to be a routine question leading up to the first week of the season: who did we think the Detroit Tigers Rookie of the Year would be? Last season, the staff were evenly split in our predictions of it being either JaCoby Jones or Joe Jimenez. Dixon Machado won. This year’s crop of young talent for the team doesn’t offer a clear contender for the mantle, and the predictions are made especially difficult when we...
