Tigers vs. Athletics Preview: Offense still isn’t Detroit’s problem

Tigers vs. Athletics Preview: Offense still isn’t Detroit’s problem

Even after injuries and trades, the Tigers are still scoring runs. Given everything their offense has gone through this year, the Detroit Tigers have no business scoring runs. They traded J.D. Martinez and Justin Upton, players who combined for 44 home runs and 5.6 fWAR in 182 games for Detroit this season. They lost Martinez, Miguel Cabrera, and Victor Martinez to injuries for long stretches of the season. Cabrera and Victor Martinez have also had their offensive production sapped by those injuries; both are below replacement level players for the season, and neither has even been a league...

Scouting Grayson Long, one of Detroit’s newest prospects

Long is a former 3rd rounder who could be a potential back-end starter. July may have come and gone, but that doesn't spell the end of trades for the Detroit Tigers. A forgettable season has led to Tigers general manager Al Avila dismantling the MLB club. The non-waiver deadline saw J.D. Martinez, Justin Wilson, and Alex Avila leave Detroit, followed by a month-long hiatus. Some fans expected to see the offseason come before the next domino fell. On Thursday, Justin Upton was dealt to the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for right-handed pitcher Grayson Long and a player to be named...
