Matthew Boyd has stated his case for 2018; Buck Farmer gets final chance tonight

Matthew Boyd has a 2.95 ERA in 36 2/3 innings over his final six starts of the season and he feels confident that the mechanical changes hes made can be carried through the winter. MINNEAPOLIS -- When the regular season comes to end, Matthew Boyd and Daniel Norris and Jordan Zimmermann and all the other Detroit Tigers pitchers will put down the ball and glove for a little while. It's time to give their arms a rest before ramping back up for spring training in February. The long layoff is why manager Brad Ausmus is skeptical that any momentum at the end of...

Royals 7, Tigers 4: The Tigers bullpen is a menace

Royals 7, Tigers 4: The Tigers bullpen is a menace

Jordan Zimmermann was pretty good though. Jordan Zimmermann was effective Wednesday night, but the bats were quiet again as the Tigers fell 7-4 to the Kansas City Royals. Zimmermann had some success keeping the ball on the ground in this one. He only struck out three, but gave up just four hits and a pair of runs. The Tigers got six innings out of him, and Zimmermann enters the offseason on a modest high note. Unfortunately, another day of miserable relief work doomed the Tigers to their 96th loss of the season. The Tigers actually got out to a lead in this one as Jeimer Candelario singled...

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann aims to enter offseason healthy after shaky 2017

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann aims to enter offseason healthy after shaky 2017

Its the best stuff Ive had in probably two years and the best Ive felt in a long time, he said. DETROIT -- Jordan Zimmermann summed up his first start in three weeks this way: "I didn't look good as I felt." That's OK, though, since the Detroit Tigers have long since moved beyond aesthetics in favor of practical concerns.  So the fact that Zimmermann lasted only four innings in the Tigers' 12-1 loss to the Twins on Thursday wasn't terribly important.  More pressing was how he felt after receiving an injection to treat a nerve block in his neck. "I was just...

Daniel Norris moving back into Tigers rotation, will start Friday

Daniel Norris moving back into Tigers rotation, will start Friday

Barring any further changes, the Tigers rotation is now set for the rest of the year. DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers left-hander Daniel Norris will make his first big-league start since July 5 on Friday night against the Minnesota Twins. Manager Brad Ausmus made the announcement after Thursday's game. Norris has been in the bullpen since returning from a dismal rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo in which he walked 12 batters in 8 1/3 innings over his last three starts.  Jordan Zimmermann returned to the rotation Thursday for the first time since getting an...

Twins 12, Tigers 1: The Tigers lost by a lot again

Twins 12, Tigers 1: The Tigers lost by a lot again

It was bad. The Detroit Tigers have six seasons with 100 or more losses in their 117 year history. If they aren’t careful, they might make it seven. The Tigers were trounced again on Thursday, providing little resistance to a Minnesota Twins team fighting for playoff position in a 12-1 blowout at Comerica Park. Worse yet, the Tigers actually led in this game. Starter Jordan Zimmermann began the game with three scoreless innings, allowing just a Joe Mauer single and a walk to catcher Jason Castro. Detroit then took a 1-0 lead on an RBI double from Jeimer Candelario, scoring Jose...

Detroit Tigers News: The 2018 Tigers will be hard to recognize

Detroit Tigers News: The 2018 Tigers will be hard to recognize

The roster overhaul is only beginning. With the 2017 season mercifully winding down, most have begun looking forward to what a 2018 Detroit Tigers squad would look like. And with all the recent departures, the answer is “very different.” Miguel Cabrera will be here, although no one knows what kind of shape his back will be in (#RestMiggy). Mikie Mahtook will be looking forward to round two after a breakout campaign this year. Nicholas Castellanos will be playing somewhere on the diamond. And pitchers Michael Fulmer, Matthew Boyd, Jordan Zimmermann, and Daniel Norris will make for a...
