Nathan had loaded the bases in the ninth inning on Friday night before left fielder Rajai Davis made a sliding catch on a fly ball to end the game. Nathan threw 26 pitches. So why did Ausmus go back to him on Saturday? 'He pitched last night, but he hasn't pitched much recently,' Ausmus said. 'Joe's the closer.'

Detroit Tigers' Rajai Davis silencing some critics with three-game surge since Austin Jackson trade

DETROIT - Below the roar of fans either applauding the David Price acquisition or booing the lack of a bullpen bolster, there was a quieter concern. With Austin Jackson off to Seattle, would Rajai Davis or prospect Ezequiel Carrera be a downgrade for the Detroit Tigers at his position? As Carrera transitions from Toledo to the big leagues, it was...

Tigers 4, Rockies 2: Rajai Davis scores two runs, knocks in two for Detroit

Davis batted leadoff and started in center field in the first game after the Tigers traded Austin Jackson to Seattle as a part of a blockbuster three-team deal. DETROIT – Austin who? OK, maybe that's a little harsh. But Rajai Davis certainly came through for the Detroit Tigers in their first game since trading center fielder Austin Jackson to the Seattle Mariners. He might not make Tigers fans forget about Jackson but Davis' performance Friday certainly helped soothe the feelings of those who weren't fond of the three-team trade that landed the Tigers pitcher...

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus slots Miguel Cabrera fourth, Rajai Davis second

If you check the splits of Miguel Cabrera's career, he has batted cleanup almost as much as he's batted third. But whenever he bats cleanup for the Tigers instead of third, the question 'why?' must be asked.

Brad Ausmus: Miguel Cabrera hitting fourth due to success Rajai Davis has against Sox starter

Someone suggested to Cabrera that there might be more runners on base this way. Yes, please, Cabrera said. DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera has batted in the cleanup spot a handful of times this season. But tonight will be the first time he does it in a home game. Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has Cabrera batting cleanup Tuesday night in the series opener against the Chicago White Sox.
