Matthew Boyd's spring debut includes strikeout of longtime pal

It feels to good to be out there and get to be in a game situation and get to attack somebody in a different uniform, he said. PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Detroit Tigers starter Matthew Boyd was done for the day, while veteran Victor Martinez was taking swings in the team's locker room in preparation for his next at-bat.  How did it go? Martinez asked when Boyd walked in. Even though it's just spring training, it still "feels like (your heart) is coming through your chest the first time you toe the rubber," Boyd told him. "Whenever that stops, you've got to stop...

Miguel Cabrera wants long afternoons to get ready for WBC

Miguel Cabrera wants long afternoons to get ready for WBC

How long you can be in the field and not get tired -- I think thats what its all about, he said. PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- When he was plunked by a pitch Saturday, Miguel Cabrera didn't ask for or receive a pinch-runner. In fact, he stayed in the game several more innings, accumulating three at-bats in the Detroit Tigers' win over the Houston Astros. Why the long day for a veteran so early in the spring?  The World Baseball Classic, of course. Cabrera and other Tigers are trying to get their work in early before they must split next week to join their respective...

Detroit Tigers Gameday: Hitting the road to play the Mets

Tigers left-hander Matthew Boyd will face 22-year-old Chris Flexen of the Mets. PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Detroit Tigers (some of them, anyway) hopped on a bus at 7 a.m. Sunday at Joker Marchant Stadium for their first road trip of the Grapefruit League season. Road trips could get more cumbersome as the Grapefruit League keeps moving south. The latest move comes next year when the Atlanta Braves move to North Port, near Sarasota.  The Mets have been here since 1988 (moving from St. Petersburg). They now play at First Data Field, which was known until a few...
