10/4/2015 | Ausmus expects Tigers to seek closer in offseason

10/3/2015 | Pitching through pain, Simon finishes season strong
The final turn on Alfredo Simon's roller-coaster season was an upswing, which most rides do not have at their end. His eight innings of two-run ball wasn't good enough to top Chris Sale and the White Sox, but it was good enough to remind people what Simon can do when he's on.
10/2/2015 | Wolf undecided about returning for another season
Randy Wolf endured nearly a full season riding the bus at Triple-A to get another shot in the big leagues. He didn't get a win, but he proved he could still pitch at age 39. It remains to be seen whether he wants to go through that again in 2016.

10/1/2015 | Miggy on verge of 4th batting title in 5 years
One reign officially ends this weekend. Another should reach a historic level. As the Tigers' run atop the American League Central closes with their first losing season since 2008, the timing appears right to appreciate what Miguel Cabrera is on the verge of accomplishing.
10/1/2015 | Boyd ends whirlwind season with lessons learned
There are worse places for Matt Boyd to be than this. Considering where he was at this point a year ago, trying to find his place in a pitching-rich Blue Jays farm system, he'll gladly stew over three 400-foot home runs in a 6-2 Tigers loss against the Rangers on Wednesday night.
