Rick Porcello refuses to allow you to steal on him

Removing the base-stealing threat was just one of the many things Porcello did right on Sunday. Rick Porcello made huge strides Sunday afternoon, after having completed two shaky outings to begin the 2014 season. A quick glance at the box score shows that he kept his pitch count relatively low and stayed around the strike zone most of the day -- 69 of his 103 pitches were thrown for strikes. He allowed only six base-runners, and he induced 11 ground outs to only two fly outs. All of this information is easy to find when pulling up a recap from Sunday afternoon, and from this it is easy to...

Rick Porcello's impact growing on Tigers' starry staff

In some ways, he's as grizzled as a 25-year-old guy can be. Rick Porcello has been around for good times, bad times, big times and small times. Half of being a pitcher is finding your way to the mound, and the other half is staying there.

Padres 6, Tigers 0: Detroit finishes with just one hit, 11 strikeouts in first shutout loss of season

Padres starter Andrew Cashner struck out a career high 11 batters and issued two walks while throwing a complete game. SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres have struggled offensively this season.

Chase Headley had a two-run home run off Rick Porcello on Friday night and the Tigers hitters couldn't figure out starter Andrew Cashner in their 6-0 loss to the Padres. The Tigers finished with just one...

Torii Hunter, who bent over and picked some grass as the ball sailed through the air, said he heard the ball hit a moving truck parked behind the scoreboard in right field. Your browser does not support iframes. LAKELAND, Fla. -- There is some question as to whether it was even the longest home run hit at Joker Marchant Stadium this week. But the home run Jason Heyward hit Tuesday afternoon off Detroit Tigers starter Rick Porcello was an absolute monster. How impressive was it?
