Tigers 19, Mariners 9: Detroit offense plows through Seattle pitching in blowout win

Zimmermann wasn’t so great, though. Neither was the bullpen. DETROIT — After a day of rest following a week on the road, the Tigers came home and tore into their first opponents on Tuesday night. With three home runs, 24 hits, and a nine-run fifth inning, Detroit knocked the Mariners and Felix Hernandez out in convincing fashion, with an 19-9 win to start their 10-game homestand. Jordan Zimmermann continued to struggle but the Tigers’ offense was firing on all cylinders. Three home runs by James McCann, Justin Upton, and Alex Avila combined for five of the seven 16 18 19 (!) runs in...

Tigers vs. Mariners Preview: Felix Hernandez, Jordan Zimmermann struggling to find past success

The Tigers and Mariners kick off a three-game series at Comerica Park. It’s tough to watch a once-great player go through the decline phase of his career. Detroit Tigers fans are watching Anibal Sanchez’s precipitous drop-off first-hand, while players like Victor Martinez and Jordan Zimmermann are teetering on the edge of a similar decline. A more gradual decline may be even more difficult to watch, though. Seattle Mariners righthander Felix Hernandez was once one of the best pitchers in baseball. His starts were events, much in the same way that we call Justin Verlander “Must See...

Tigers Gameday: Jordan Zimmermann, Chris Archer battle in Tampa

The Tigers lost the series opener to the Rays 5-1 on Tuesday, snapping a six-game winning streak dating back to May 21 of last year. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Injured outfielder J.D. Martinez is expected to take batting practice with the Detroit Tigers before Wednesday's game at Tropicana Field. He's still probably at least 10-14 days from returning, so the Tigers won't be able to plug him into the lineup if Justin Upton is out. Upton suffered a contusion on his right wrist on Tuesday, an injury that was painful but not as serious as first feared. He'll be...

Tigers hope Jordan Zimmermann's 1st start is beginning of bounce-back year

On Saturday he looked more like the pitcher that the Tigers decided to invest $110 million in than the one who limped to the finish line in 2016. DETROIT -- Even as he accumulated some unsightly numbers in spring training, Jordan Zimmermann was unworried.  The Wisconsin native might as well have been channeling Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodger's famous "R-E-L-A-X" line. "As long as I'm healthy, that's the main thing," Zimmermann said as spring came to a close. Zimmermann is healthy, and on Saturday he looked more like the pitcher that the Tigers decided to...
