Miguel Cabrera left Mondays game with a biceps muscle strain. DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera is apparently going to get a day off after straining his left biceps muscle on Monday. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is playing first base and hitting seventh for the Detroit Tigers Tuesday in the second game of their series against the Kansas City Royals at Comerica Park (7:10 p.m., FSD). Cabrera is considered day-to-day with the injury, though general manager Al Avila hinted earlier today on MLB Network the All-Star slugger would likely require a day off before returning. Casey...

Well, this is weird. The Red Sox today made a successful claim on Ranger catcher Bryan Holaday—who was DFL'd earlier by Texas. Holaday is hitting .238 with two HRs this season in very limited action. The 28-year old spent most of his career with Detroit—but was displaced by (ironically) Jarrod Saltalamacchia. It's unclear what impact this acquisition will have on Andover High School's Ryan Hanigan—who has slumped badly lately on the offensive side of the ball.

The frenzy of the August 1st non-waver trade deadline for 2016 has come and gone. Lots was written on our pages, by me and others, giving our thoughts about each trade. Now its time to look at it as a whole. In other words “How did the Padres do overall?” Many consider that the […] Padres Summer Trade Season - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Despite not making a trade for a new backstop, the Tigers have a clear path for improvement. The trade deadline has come and gone without the Detroit Tigers taking part in the action. With rising costs, limited resources, and key players returning from the disabled list, the lack of movement was probably the right choice for this team. One trade that would have been interesting to see, however, was the acquisition of Jonathan Lucroy. I argued that the current tandem of James McCann and Jarrod Saltalamacchia is insufficient, and that the Tigers should look to upgrade. But with Lucroy moving...

What a win that was last night. I was certain the Tigers had a 1-0 win going into the 9th, and i was just as certain they had a 2-1 loss on their hands in the bottom of the 9th, especially after the inning began with a Martinez weak grounder and a Saltalamacchia pinch-hit strikeout. […]
