Tigers Prospect Daily 4/25/15: A Toledo homecoming for Steven Moya

Erie and Toledo worked a round of roster musical chairs on Friday evening, sending Wade Gaynor to Erie and creating an opening to welcome Steven Moya back to Fifth Third Field. Indianapolis Indians: 9, Toledo Mud Hens: 3 (box) When you've tasted the first-place in a division race, it's difficult to accept any position lower on the totem pole and for the Mud Hens, this has been no exception. Following three consecutive losses (two of which came to Indianapolis), the hunger for a win Saturday afternoon was greater than even. Despite the efforts of five innings of work from Toledo starter Mike...

Detroit Tigers 4, Cleveland Indians 1: Game 18 Player of the Game

Who was today's Tigers player of the game in their 4-1 win over the Indians? After a 13-1 beating last night stretched their losing streak to four games, the Detroit Tigers got back in the win column with a solid all-around effort today. They jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning and cruised to a 4-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians, who were forced to use lefthander T.J. House instead of scheduled starter Trevor Bauer due to an illness. Victor Martinez led the way for the Tigers' offense, driving in the first three runs of the game with two singles. Miguel Cabrera was walked four...

Tigers 4, Indians 1: Alfredo Simon dominates Cleveland offense

The Tigers snapped a four-game losing streak behind the bat of Victor Martinez and pitching of Alfredo Simon. DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers' offense finally awoke, and timely hitting helped snap a four-game losing streak. Backed by a strong start by Alfredo Simon and Victor Martinez's bat, the Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 4-1, improving their record to 12-6 for the season. Simon (4-0) was the first Tigers pitcher to start the 2015 season with four wins. After getting out of a two-on, two-out threat in the first, Simon settled down and allowed just one run in his 6 2/3 innings of work....

New York Yankees 2, Detroit Tigers 1: Game 16 Player of the Game

Who was the Tigers' player of the game in today's 2-1 loss to the Yankees? After racing out to an 11-2 start, the Detroit Tigers have lost three consecutive games. Their third straight loss came this afternoon, a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the New York Yankees. The Tigers' pitching staff combined to allow just three hits, but issued six walks while the offense only mustered three hits of their own. Anibal Sanchez was much better today than in his past two starts. He gave up just one run in 6 1/3 innings, allowing one hit while striking out eight. He allowed four walks and needed help from...

Yankees 2, Tigers 1: Detroit bats remains cold

The Tigers just can't get the offense going and dropped their first series decision of the season to the Yankees, 3-1. DETROIT -- The Tigers' bats were about as cold as the Detroit weather Thursday afternoon. The end result: Another low-scoring affair for the Tigers on a 33-degree afternoon, and a 2-1 loss to the New York Yankees. That gave Detroit its first series defeat of the year, as the Tigers dropped three-of-four games at Comerica Park this week. The lone bright point: Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez fixed the mechanical issue that plagued him in earlier starts. He finished the day...

Tigers' Joe Nathan not ready to hang up the cleats despite impending Tommy John surgery

Joe Nathan's 2015 season is done but the righthander is determined to recover from a second Tommy John surgery and pitch in the major leagues again. DETROIT -- Joe Nathan has been through a Tommy John surgery before. This will be his second go-around with the surgery, made more in-depth because of multiple tears. He's not the only Detroit Tigers pitcher to undergo two surgeries of this nature, closer Joakim Soria being another, who has had two. Despite what now looks like a bleak future, Nathan intends to approach a season-ending setback as if he'll be back again at some point. "Hanging my...

Game 2015.16: Yankees at Tigers

Well, there is one good thing about last night’s game. But what it is I couldn’t tell you. I guess if you were at the game, the beer stayed cold, we’ll go with that. The Tigers turn to Anibal Sanchez to stop their first losing streak of the season, and hope to see the old […]

Detroit Tigers reliever Joe Nathan will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery

After a tumultuous first season in Detroit, Joe Nathan's second one comes to a close before it could even begin. DETROIT -- Joe Nathan's season is done. The right-handed reliever will undergo Tommy John surgery at a date to be determined, ending not just his year, but possibly his career. Additionally, the Detroit Tigers announced that Ian Krol had been optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Wednesday night's game. "There's no good time to have an injury like that," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "I don't know that I would say Joe's done pitching, maybe after the surgery he may want to...

Who are Alex Wilson and Gabe Speier?

Along with Yoenis Cespedes, the Tigers acquired pitchers Alex Wilson and Gabe Speier from the Boston Red Sox. Here is a closer look at the two lesser known players in the deal. Editor's note: The Tigers recalled Alex Wilson from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday morning. Ian Krol has been optioned to Toledo. The main storyline reads "Tigers trade Rick Porcello to Boston for Yoenis Cespedes." The two other players that Detroit will receive in the deal are almost an afterthought, but perhaps they shouldn’t be. Here is a closer look at Alex Wilson and Gabe Speier, the newest members of the Detroit...

Yoenis Cespedes outhitting Torii Hunter at the start of the 2015 season

Yoenis Cespedes has gotten off to a hot start with the Tigers, but would they have been better off re-signing Torii Hunter? It's too early to tell, but lets have some fun with numbers anyway. One of the hottest topics going into the season was whether the Detroit Tigers' offense would be more productive with new leftfielder Yoenis Cespedes or the recently departed Torii Hunter. The Tigers had the chance to re-sign Hunter, but passed, opting to trade Rick Porcello to the Boston Red Sox for Cespedes instead. After seven years away, Hunter returned to his home organization of...

Tigers top prospect Derek Hill cleared to rejoin West Michigan Whitecaps

Detroit's first-round pick of the 2014 draft received the green light to reclaim his roster slot with West Michigan after rehabbing a quad strain in Lakeland. COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. -- While some prospects must strive to prove their worth upon entering the daunting world of professional baseball, the talent of the Detroit Tigers first-round pick (23rd overall), Derek Hill proceeded him and with good reason. Fresh from time spent in the New York-Penn and Golf Coast Leagues in 2014, the enthusiasm resting on the Hill's entrance into West Michigan was cut short unexpectedly after roughly a game...

New York Yankees 13, Detroit Tigers 4: Game 15 Player of the Game

Who was last night's Tigers player of the game in their 13-4 loss to the Yankees? The Detroit Tigers suffered their second nine-run loss of the season last night, falling 13-4 to the New York Yankees in a snowy (and potentially needless) game at Comerica Park. David Price was knocked around for eight runs on 10 hits in 2 1/3 innings, while other pitchers didn't fare much better. Yoenis Cespedes was the only Tigers hitter to collect more than one hit. He went 2 for 3 on the night, driving in a run with a two-out single in the bottom of the first inning. Cespedes' first hit helped key a...

Yankees 13, Tigers 4: Cold weather freezes Detroit bats, pitching in blowout loss

Snow, freezing temperatures, and loss of feeling. Some baseball was played, and eventually, after much silliness, the Tigers lost, giving Detroit its first losing streak of the year. DETROIT -- It was 39 degrees at game time and flurries were falling at the stadium. After a wild first inning in which 10 runs scored between the two teams, both teams eventually settled in as much as was humanly possible for a rough nightcap. The Detroit Tigers lost 13-4 to the New York Yankees as a result of bitter cold from loss of feeling on both sides. Now, I could fancy this up, sprinkle some sugar, and...

Game 2015.15: Yankees at Tigers

As good as Tuesday’s game was, the Tigers dribbled through Tuesday’s game like an egregiously under-inflated basketball.  It’s not that the game wasn’t close; The Lobster, despite a shaky start, got through 6 innings with only one run, and the Tigers went into the 7th down only 1-0. In fact Detroit had the winning run […]

Detroit Tigers hoping Ian Krol can fix mechanics, fill bullpen void

Ian Krol has the potential to bring stability to a bullpen in need of Joe Nathan, but he needs to be able to consistently throw strikes first. DETROIT -- With Joe Nathan undergoing tests and the Detroit Tigers awaiting word on the next steps, the bullpen was fully exposed for the first time this season. It wasn't pretty, and Ian Krol, who has an ability to be a strength for the Tigers out of the bullpen, is struggling with his mechanics, which is heavily contributing to his inability to find the strike zone effectively. Nathan was only days removed from coming off the disabled list and...

Tigers' Joe Nathan leaves rehab outing with apparent injury

After throwing just 10 pitches, Joe Nathan's rehab ground to a halt when he left a Triple-A outing in pain. DETROIT -- It was supposed to be one of the last, if not the last steps in Joe Nathan's recovery from the 15-day disabled list. After Wednesday morning's rehab outing in Toledo, that may no longer be the case, as Nathan left a Triple-A appearance with the Mud Hens after 10 pitches. Nathan's recovery from a right elbow flexor strain had been progressing well with no setbacks. He went on the DL on April 7 for discomfort he had been feeling in the last week of spring training. Tuesday,...
