Brad Ausmus standing by 'spot-on' use of bullpen in late-inning 11-9 loss to Mariners

Ausmus defends decision-making as team sinks under .500 for the second time this season. DETROIT -- Brad Ausmus isn't backing down. Talking to reporters from the Detroit Tigers' dugout Wednesday afternoon as his players took batting practice, the club's manager vehemently defended his use of his bullpen in Tuesday night's late-inning 11-9 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Ausmus watched Neftali Feliz give up five runs on four hits and a walk in the eighth inning. Franklin Gutierrez pinch-hit grand slam erased the Tigers 8-6 lead, and came with no pitchers up in the...

Detroit Tigers blow late lead against Mariners to fall back below .500

Newly signed reliever Neftali Feliz gave up a grand slam to Franklin Gutierrez with two outs in the eighth inning as the Detroit Tigers fell back below .500 with a gut-punching loss. DETROIT -- If the Detroit Tigers want to avoid being sellers at the non-waiver trade deadline, they can't afford to lose games they should win. And this was a game they probably should've won.

Newly signed reliever Neftali Feliz will have no set role at start of Detroit Tigers tenure

One potential benefit for the Tigers is that Feliz has a year of arbitration eligibility left, so they have some control over whether he will pitch for the Tigers next season. MINNEAPOLIS -- Neftali Feliz is not the pitcher he was in 2010 and 2011. How much will he help a Detroit Tigers bullpen that definitely needs some? That's unclear. So is his role. Feliz will join a bullpen that has no one in a set role outside of closer Joakim Soria. The Tigers announced Saturday morning that he had agreed to terms on a big-league contract. He joined the team Saturday...
