Game 115 Preview: Tigers at Angels

Game 115 Preview: Tigers at Angels

The Tigers are one game away from a winless West Coast road trip. The Detroit Tigers have lost five games in a row. However, given the manner in which they have lost on their current road trip, it feels like 25 losses in a row. If anything, it feels like a surprise that the Tigers are “only” 11-19 since July 1. They have been anemic offensively since Miguel Cabrera went down for the year in mid-June — their wRC+ over the past 30 days is down to 52, or basically what Dixon Machado hit this season — and the pitching has been unable to keep up. There’s not much we can do about that....

Blue Jays: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. could follow Miguel Cabrera defensively

While Vladimir Guerrero Jr’s hitting talents are well documented, there are many questions about where he’ll end up on defence. Something tells me he’ll have a similar career to Miguel Cabrera’s when it comes to defensive positioning. If you can hit well enough at the big league level, you’ll find your way into a lineup […] Blue Jays: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. could follow Miguel Cabrera defensively - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

John Hicks has filled Miguel Cabrera’s spot surprisingly well

John Hicks has filled Miguel Cabrera’s spot surprisingly well

Filling in for Cabrera is a tall task. Going into the 2018 season, the Detroit Tigers hoped that a bounce-back season from Miguel Cabrera would make what was set to be a rough season a bit more tolerable. The numbers were promising (.299 AVG, .395 OBP, 22 RBI), until a hamstring injury in May saw him miss time. After a brief return, a seemingly normal swing on a June evening would result in a biceps injury that would ultimately sideline the Tigers’ slugger for the remainder of the season. With sizable shoes to fill, the Tigers tried a few options to plug the hole that the injury iceberg...

Game 108 Preview: Reds at Tigers

Game 108 Preview: Reds at Tigers

Reds starter Homer Bailey hasn’t been very good this year, but neither has the Tigers offense. Those reading these previews throughout the season know that I have been bemoaning the Tigers’ offense (or lack thereof) lately. Detroit continues to own baseball’s worst offense over the past 30 days, with a paltry 68 wRC+. That is 10 points behind the next-worst team, and 16 behind the next American League club. They are hitting .225/.283/.345 since Miguel Cabrera went down for the season on June 12; I can’t fact check this in a timely manner, but I think it’s safe to say this is the...

Miguel Cabrera trying to stay upbeat about recovery

Miguel Cabrera trying to stay upbeat about recovery

DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera can now say it with a good deal of certainty: Baseball is harder than it looks on TV.Its so easy when you watch the game on TV. Its so slow, the Detroit slugger said. The game is so simple on TV.Its not nearly as simple on the field, of course, and right now all Cabrera can do is watch. The Tigers lost their star first baseman in the middle of June to a ruptured biceps tendon, and hes out for the season. Detroit was in a rebuilding mode anyway, but losing one of the teams top hitters was a significant blow.Cabrera was back at Comerica Park on Monday night to host an...
