Dawel Lugo called up from Triple-A Toledo

3B Jeimer Candelario is headed to the DL for a wrist issue. The injury bug just won’t back off the Detroit Tigers in recent weeks. Miguel Cabrera, Leonys Martin and Jordan Zimmermann have all been sidelined with minor injuries, leaving an already thin lineup and rotation even weaker. Cabrera and Martin should work their way back into the Tigers lineup this week if everything goes according to plan. But the lineup will need the help, as you can now you can add Jeimer Candelario to the list of walking wounded. The Tigers’ third baseman has been dealing with a ligament issue in his left...

Bless You Boys needs your podcast questions!

Half of the Tigers team, it feels like, are currently on the disabled list, with Miguel Cabrera, Daniel Norris, Jordan Zimmermann, and Alex Wilson all currently on the mend. Certainly not good news for a team that finds itself in second place in the AL Central... somehow. This, of course, means we’re seeing the return of some familiar Toledo faces, and some less familiar ones. Some guys you may or may not have questions about. Or perhaps you’re wondering what we think the Tigers will do when Norris returns. Then there’s the whole situation with Ron Gardenhire badmouthing Jose...

Flurry of Tigers’ roster moves land Jordan Zimmermann, Alex Wilson on DL

After the game, it was announced that a series of roster moves will be made that will land both Jordan Zimmermann and Alex Wilson on the disabled list. Prior to tomorrow’s game, the @tigers will […]

Tigers place Wilson, Zimmermann on disabled list

Zac Reininger and Pete Kozma will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo. The Detroit Tigers announced a flurry of roster moves after Monday’s loss to the Texas Rangers. The two biggest moves involved a pair of right-handed pitchers; Alex Wilson and Jordan Zimmermann were both placed on the 10-day disabled list. Daniel Norris, already on the DL after having groin surgery last week, was shifted to the 60-day disabled list. With an extra spot available on the 40-man roster, the Tigers purchased the contract of utility infielder Pete Kozma and called him up to the majors. Reliever Zac Reininger...

Tigers 3, Royals 2: Jordan Zimmermann was strong, while the bullpen hung on

Tigers 3, Royals 2: Jordan Zimmermann was strong, while the bullpen hung on

Starting pitching continues to be a surprising strength for the Tigers. Jordan Zimmermann put together a fine start on Saturday, shutting out the Kansas City Royals for five innings and the Tigers hung on to take this one 3-2. Zimmermann’s command was as good as we’ve seen it this year, as he mixed pitches with authority, kept hitters off balance and didn’t miss over the heart of the plate. Zimmermann continued to rely on heavy doses of his slider, but cycled curveballs and changeups into the equation to keep the Royals punchless lineup guessing. He struck out five and walked three,...

Hammel finds double trouble, Royals lose 3-2

Hammel finds double trouble, Royals lose 3-2

It wasn’t all bad but it was bad enough. From a certain point of view, everything you need to know about this game happened in the first inning. Jason Hammel allowed a single to the lead-off hitter then, after striking out the second batter, allowed three of the next four hitters to belt RBI doubles. That proved to be more than enough offensive output to doom the Royals’ chances before they even came to the plate against Jordan Zimmermann. From another point of view, it was actually a pretty good start for Jason Hammel. Those 3 runs ended up being the only ones he - or the bullpen, for...

Game 32 Preview: Tigers at Royals

Game 32 Preview: Tigers at Royals

Zimmermann is looking to build on his last outing, his best in a Tigers uniform. When we say that Jordan Zimmermann’s last start was his best in a Tigers uniform, it’s not hyperbole. Zimmermann held the Tampa Bay Rays to just two hits in seven scoreless innings five days ago, a hard-luck 3-2 loss. He struck out five and walked one. He has had better outings on that front already — he struck out eight and walked one in an Opening Day loss — but no outing was more complete than that gem he threw on April 30. According to Bill James’ Game Score metric, Zimmermann scored a 77 in his...

Rays 3, Tigers 2: At least Zimmermann was great

Zimmermann finally pitched well, but the Tigers lost anyway. The Tigers and Rays spent eight innings locked in a scoreless tie as starters Jordan Zimmermann and Jake Faria played the roles of dueling aces, before packing all the action into the ninth inning. Shane Greene served up two home runs to give the Rays a three-run lead, but the Tigers’ bats stormed back to score a pair in the bottom of the ninth. They ultimately fell a run short, however, and dropped to 11-16 on the season. Zimmermann had his best outing since August 2nd, 2017, allowing only two singles and a walk across seven...
