Friday Open Thread: Pick your favorite player of the season

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Yes, it’s too soon, but this will be fun later. Before we start the season, we’ll have another open thread where you can make your bold predictions for how the Tigers will play in 2024, but for today, with spring training games underway and the roster pretty much set, we thought we’d try a different kind of prediction. Considering we’ve barely seen (or even heard) much of the Tigers’ pre-season so far, it should be impossible to pick a stand-out player as our favorite of the coming season. But that’s precisely what we want you to do in...

Scouting the Statcast line in spring camp

Scouting the Statcast line in spring camp

Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports As usual, we aren’t getting as many broadcasts as we’d like in spring training, but we can look at what Statcast is telling us. The Detroit Tigers are always a bit frustrating in spring training because there are precious few televised broadcasts. Even driving around the Detroit area, the early spring games may be am radio only if you’re using your trusty antenna. So the pent up anticipation of the season getting under way always seems to lead directly to the doldrums of the first week or two of games, when we’re hearing a lot but...

Photo by Duane Burleson/ Reese Olson looks set to take the ball for the Tigers as spring action gets underway at home against the Yankees. We won’t see the Detroit Tigers on the interwebs and airwaves until Sunday, but the first game of the exhibition season is finally here. It’s somewhat fitting that Dan Dickerson gets the first call of the year as they welcome the New York Yankees into Joker Marchant Stadium at 1:05 p.m. ET today. The Tigers will send Reese Olson to the mound for the first start of the year on Saturday, and he’ll presumably have Jake Rogers...

Notes from the first full week of Detroit Tigers spring camp

Junfu Han / USA TODAY NETWORK The Grapefruit League season starts on Saturday, with Jason Benetti’s Bally debut set for Sunday as the first televised game. The Grapefruit League calendar gets underway with a home game against the New York Yankees at 1:05 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon. While the broadcast schedule is typically dissatisfying in the minimal number of games that will be televised, the fanbase and no doubt the teams themselves are ready to get things going with actual games. After a week of camp, there are several interesting notes from the beat writers to...

Tigers sign infielder Gio Urshela to a one year deal

Tigers sign infielder Gio Urshela to a one year deal

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports Urshela gives the club another good option against left-handed pitching. The Tigers signed infielder Gio Urshela to a one year, $1.5 million contract, as reported on Thursday afternoon by Jeff Passan. Urshela is a bat-first utility infielder who spent the 2023 season playing for the Angels. His offensive skills hinge in a high contact rate and he hit .299/.329/.374 with two home runs in 62 games last year. While that figures to a slightly below average performance according to wRC+, it would have still been sufficient to rank among the...

Keston Hiura signs minor league deal with Detroit

Keston Hiura signs minor league deal with Detroit

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Detroit has struck a deal with the former top prospect and Milwaukee Brewers infielder. On Friday evening, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reported that free agent infielder Keston Hiura had been signed by the Detroit Tigers. The details — a minor league contract that will convert to $2 million in guaranteed money and performance incentives if he makes the MLB team — were reported by Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press shortly afterward. Hiura was the first round pick of the Milwaukee Brewers in 2017, who selected him ninth overall....

Junfu Han / USA TODAY NETWORK The Tigers appear to have much of their full squad already on hand in Lakeland, and we’re just as anxious to get the season underway. Wednesday, February 14 is the date we’ve been waiting on all offseason. Sure, Valentine’s Day is nice but have you seen report day for pitchers and catchers? As it turns out, the Tigers already have plenty of position players in camp, but the traditional starting point for spring camp is here, and we’re thrilled to see the club getting back to work.

2024 Detroit Tigers spring training preview: New faces but no big offseason splash

Photo by Bob Levey/ The Tigers placed their bets on their young talent and kept their options open to improve the roster as needed during the season. The hope coming into the offseason was that the Detroit Tigers would be able to replace their losses on the pitching staff and add a serious dose of offense to a 2023 roster that still sorely needed it. A series of moves to accomplish those goals would put the club in reasonably good position to make a run at the division in 2024. They arguably fell a little short, but in betting instead on a farm system loaded with upper...

Friday Open Thread: What do you love about spring training?

Baseball is back!!! The sweetest four words of the early months of the year are: “pitchers and catcher report.” This coming week we’ll start seeing just that, as the first photos of teams gearing up for the season begin to appear, and shortly after we see the first full-squad workouts begin. There’s just something wonderful about spring training. It’s the first sign of a new baseball season, and we get fun things like our usual “best shape of his life” reports on players who discovered personal trainers over the winter, or seeing new guys don their Tigers jerseys...
