Tigers will have No. 1 overall pick in 2018 MLB draft

Tigers will have No. 1 overall pick in 2018 MLB draft

A brutal September will pay off in the end for Detroit. Thanks to a brutal September in which the Detroit Tigers went 6-24, they will have the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 MLB draft. The Tigers clinched the top overall pick on Sunday, when they lost to the Minnesota Twins at Target Field. This will be the second time the Tigers have had the No. 1 overall pick since the draft’s inception in 1965. Detroit infamously selected right-handed pitcher Matt Anderson first overall in 1997. Anderson pitched in parts of six seasons for the Tigers, but was one of the biggest busts in MLB draft...

What the Tigers said after Saturday's #NineForRomine victory

What the Tigers said after Saturday's #NineForRomine victory

I think it meant a lot to him, said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus. Hes not a guy who wants or gets a lot of attention. This gives him a day in the sun, so to speak. MINNEAPOLIS -- Left fielder Andrew Romine caught a fly ball to record the Detroit Tigers' first out of the game. Three hours later, first baseman Andrew Romine fielded a sharp grounder to retire the Minnesota Twins in the ninth. In between, his quest to play all nine positions contained moments that were both harrowing and routine. He was a catcher for four batters. He threw an 88 mph fastball. He...

Tigers 3, Twins 2: Roamin’ Romine ruins everything

Tigers 3, Twins 2: Roamin’ Romine ruins everything

Damn you, Romine. The Twins dropped a close one to the Tigers on Saturday night, outhitting Detroit but failing to bring runners in against Buck Farmer and the Motor City bullpen. The Twins would jump out to an early lead, with Max Kepler taking a bases-loaded walk into the bottom of the 1st. Unfortunately, the bases would be left full — and the Tigers would pounce right back in the next inning, as Bryan Holaday grounded in Efren Navarro on a fielder’s choice. The game cruised along to the 5th, when poor fielding set the Twins back a hair. Jeimer Candelario singled in JaCoby Jones, then...

Tigers 3, Twins 2: Nine for Romine

Tigers 3, Twins 2: Nine for Romine

A play-by-play look at Romine’s historic night. This may very well be the last game of the season, if Mother Nature has her way, and what a game it was. Rather than the usual format of recap I’m going to do something a little different tonight as I review the inning-by-inning actions of Andrew Romine, who became the fifth player in MLB history to play all nine positions in one game. Inning One Nothing happened offensively (I know, I was shocked, too), so let’s jump right to the bottom of the inning. Romine started the night in left field and collected the first two outs on flys. He...
