Astros, Justin Verlander close to contract extension

Say goodbye to any hopes of a reunion with the Tigers. So much for that storybook ending. Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros are close to an agreement on a two-year contract extension, according to reports from just about every big baseball media person on the internet. The contract, per MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand, will be a two-year deal worth roughly $66 million, or $33 million per year. The odds that Verlander would have returned to don a Detroit Tigers uniform in 2020 were already slim, but fans were hoping for a reunion for obvious reasons.

The Tigers could take a page from the Rays to replace Michael Fulmer

The Tigers could take a page from the Rays to replace Michael Fulmer

The loss of Michael Fulmer is an opportunity for the Tigers to shake things up. There is nothing good about a starting pitcher needing Tommy John surgery. It puts them out of commission for 12-18 months, it leaves a pit of uncertainty for the team and their fans, and for the pitcher it’s an emotionally exhausting, heartbreaking punch in the gut. That’s before the grueling work of rehabbing the injury even begins. When the Tigers learned they would be losing former Rookie of the Year pitcher Michael Fulmer for the 2019 season — after three separate opinions just to make sure it truly...

Jose Cisnero is having an impressive spring

Jose Cisnero is having an impressive spring

The hard-throwing righthander has been out of the majors for four years. One player you probably haven’t spent much time thinking about this spring, is reliever Jose Cisnero. The big right-hander has pitched the late innings quite a bit in Grapefruit League action, but typically hasn’t faced opponents’ starting lineup as a result.

Of course, the Tigers themselves will tell you they like...
