Game 48 Preview: Tigers at Twins

Game 48 Preview: Tigers at Twins

Boyd has been Detroit’s best starter this year, but is it for real? For whatever reason, I still can’t quite bring myself to believe that Matthew Boyd might just be good. The 27-year-old has shown us flashes of his mid-rotation potential in the past, but always followed those up with a dud of a start or two. He was almost like the second coming of Rick Porcello — take out his worst start (or two) and there’s a pretty good pitcher in there. I mean, just look at 2016; were it not for his last start, Boyd would have finished the season with a 4.16 ERA in 97 1⁄3 innings. This year,...

Tampa Bay Rays promote Willy Adames, per report

The young rookie could make his Rays debut this week. The Tampa Bay Rays are reportedly promoting their top prospect, Willy Adames, to the majors league ahead of tonight’s game against the Boston Red Sox according to Enrique Rojas of ESPN. The Rays acquired Adames from the Detroit Tigers at the 2014 trade deadline as part of a package they received for David Price. At the time of the deal, Adames was an unknown prospect in the Tigers system, but he quickly made his name known and surged to the top of the prospect rankings. Adames, 22, is currently hitting .311/.387/.466 with 4 HR over 40...

Question us! The BYB Podcast records tonight

Get your questions in, and we’ll tackle them on the show Hey folks, the Bless You Boys podcast will record Tuesday night. The fun, modestly successful start is beginning to give way to bullpen disasters and weak offensive showings. This is no surprise, of course. However, it is frustrating nonetheless. Is there anything the Tigers can do without blowing up their plans? We’ll talk about it. But there are a lot of possible topics beyond the Tigers 25 man roster. There is the struggles of some of the Tigers top prospects. And we’re under two weeks until the draft. Casey Mize still seems...

Links: Miguel Cabrera is taking batting practice again

Cabrera still isn’t quite ready to return, but Jeimer Candelario could be back this week. The Detroit Tigers have been battered by injuries recently, but might start to get healthy soon. Among the updates provided to reporters on Monday was the news that Miguel Cabrera took batting practice in Minnesota. While there was no specific update given on his status, the fact that Cabrera is taking swings again is an encouraging sign. He has been on the disabled list since May 4 with a hamstring injury, but could be ready to return fairly soon. Also on the mend is Jeimer Candelario, who took...

Twins 4, Tigers 2: Baseball is a team game

The Tigers right fielder knocked in the team’s only two runs. The Detroit Tigers started off hot but could not maintain their early momentum, as they dropped the series opener to the Twins in Ron Gardenhire’s first managerial return to Minnesota, 4-2. The score is in the title, so the bad news may be fairly obvious: the Tigers lost the ballgame. This bad news gets even worse, however, as they lost it due to a game-winning bases-loaded walk by Logan Morrison. It’s hard to give Morrison full credit for that walk, however, as Daniel Stumpf missed the strike zone on four straight pitches...

Watch Nick Castellanos’ monster homer

Castellanos destroyed a baseball to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead. Nicholas Castellanos has always been an aggressive hitter since joining the Detroit Tigers. He has put the ball in play on the first pitch 329 times in his career entering play on Monday, hitting .389 with a .722 slugging average. First pitch swing number 330 came against the Minnesota Twins on Monday evening, and it went a long way. You're cleared for takeoff, #Blastellanos! pic.twitter.com/XzfiiYiLr6— Detroit Tigers (@tigers) May 22, 2018 Yup, that’s Castellanos clearing the center field fence with ease to give the...

Game 47 Preview: Tigers at Twins

Game 47 Preview: Tigers at Twins

The Tigers are nearly 30 percent of the way through their season, but haven’t squared off against the Twins yet. Major League Baseball’s unbalanced schedule often results in a number of quirks throughout a given season. For instance, the Tigers just played their entire season series against the Seattle Mariners in nine days (it would have been 10 were it not for a Friday rainout). Detroit was also done with the Pirates and Orioles in April, and won’t see the Astros for the first time until just before the All-Star break. Intradivisional scheduling quirks are more rare, though. The...

Tigers Prospect Notebook: John Schreiber is settling in with Erie

Tigers Prospect Notebook: John Schreiber is settling in with Erie

Meanwhile, Reynaldo Rivera is adding some needed pop to the Whitecaps lineup. Erie SeaWolves reliever John Schreiber garnered plenty of attention during Spring Training, driven by his streak of 44 consecutive appearances without allowing an earned run last season in West Michigan, and by his funky sidearm delivery. Given the Tigers’ struggles this season in the bullpen, it’s a good time to check in on the 24-year old farmhand. Given Schreiber’s complete dominance of Midwest League hitters in 2017 (.147 BAA, 8.75 K/BB, 12.5 K/9), as well as his impressive showing in four appearances...

Tigers should stick with Shane Greene as closer

Tigers should stick with Shane Greene as closer

No, Joe Jimenez shouldn’t take over yet. For a fan of the Detroit Tigers, it’s perfectly natural to be a little frustrated with Shane Greene right now. He spoiled a brilliant pitching performance by Francisco Liriano on Sunday, and gave away a potential split in a road series. The blown save was Greene’s third of the year, though he’s also converted 10 of them already as well. While it’s true that Greene hasn’t looked his best, and blown saves are one of the most aggravating things in baseball, let’s remember that there’s just no point to moving him out of the closing...
