Indians 8, Tigers 0: Copy + paste

Indians 8, Tigers 0: Copy + paste

This is basically the same recap as yesterday. The Detroit Tigers got their first hit earlier in this game, but the result was the same by the end of it. Detroit’s offense managed just four hits in an 8-0 loss against the Cleveland Indians, their fourth defeat in a row. It was the seventh time the Tigers have been shutout in 2019. The Indians got on the board early, scoring in the top of the first against Tigers starter Spencer Turnbull. Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis hit two-out doubles, putting the Tribe up 1-0 before Detroit’s offense came to the plate. The Tigers recorded their...

Game 69 Preview: Indians at Tigers

Spencer Turnbull will try to pick up a win for the Tigers on Sunday. The Detroit Tigers aren’t supposed to win this game. Their odds of pulling out a victory, according to FiveThirtyEight, stand at just 39 percent. Mind you, this low percentage comes while playing at home — they have the second-lowest odds to win of any home team on Sunday — and, if you believe FanGraphs’ WAR calculations, with the better starting pitcher on the mound. Granted, most of us would pick Trevor Bauer over Spencer Turnbull if given the choice in a winner-take-all situation, but FiveThirtyEight gives...

Game 65 Preview: Tigers at Royals

The superior Dan will be decided at Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday. The Detroit Tigers dropped a heartbreaker Tuesday night after the Kansas City Royals completed a late-inning rally behind some baserunning heroics and fielding boners in a battle for the American League Central cellar. The loss wasted yet another fine start by rookie Spencer Turnbull, as well as exposed a key Tigers’ weakness: the defense. The boys in the Olde English D look to even the three game series on Wednesday evening in a matchup of two Dans — Dan Duffy, who has been pitching well for the Royals so far this year...

What should the Tigers’ starting rotation look like right now?

What should the Tigers’ starting rotation look like right now?

With some of their arms on the mend, the Tigers have a few more options to fill their rotation now. The Detroit Tigers’ starting rotation has been a mess this season. This isn’t their fault; they have actually performed relatively well, all things considered. Their 102 ERA- is just a hair below league average, and Matthew Boyd has been one of the best pitchers in baseball. Spencer Turnbull is not far behind in overall value, and his 67 ERA- is actually a hair better than Boyd’s. Daniel Norris has struggled at times, but performed adequately for a back-end starter. That the Tigers’...

Rays 4, Tigers 0: Defense spells doom

Rays 4, Tigers 0: Defense spells doom

A few rough plays and a quiet offensive effort buried the Tigers. The Detroit Tigers dropped game two in their series with the Tampa Bay Rays by a 4-0 mark on Wednesday night. It is the sixth time that they have been shut out this season. Defensive miscues set the tone for the Tigers’ demise, as they committed three errors. It was smooth sailing for Spencer Turnbull through the first two innings, until a wayward throw to third base on an Austin Meadows triple allowed him to come home to open the night’s scoring in the third inning. After an Avisail Garcia RBI double in the fifth...

It will be the young stud against the rejuvenated veteran at Comerica Park as the Tigers aim for a series win. Now that the dust has finally settled following the first two days of the 2019 MLB Draft, the Detroit Tigers can get back to work on securing another high pick in the 2020 draft... though defeating the Tampa Bay Rays — as they did rather capably on Tuesday evening — goes against that philosophy. The 26-year-old Spencer Turnbull, one of the team’s true potential building blocks at this point, will start for Detroit on Tuesday, seeking to continue his strong season against the...

Tigers place Spencer Turnbull on bereavement list

Josh Harrison was also placed on the 10-day injured list. The Detroit Tigers announced a bevy of roster moves on Tuesday, some of which were apparent in their 3-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards. The first, and most obvious, was that the Tigers placed righthander Spencer Turnbull on the bereavement list. Jeimer Candelario, who drew a walk late in Tuesday’s game, was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to replace Turnbull. According to MLB rules, a player placed on the bereavement list must miss at least three games, but no more than seven. Turnbull was not scheduled to pitch...
