8/22/2016 | Pass it on: Verlander mentoring Fulmer

Justin Verlander has been where Michael Fulmer is now. A decade ago, Verlander was the rookie sensation in the Tigers' rotation, delivering like an ace every five games and pitching Detroit into contention. He was the youngster pitching beyond his previous innings level, trying to maintain not only his rotation spot but the quality pitching that got him there.


8/21/2016 | With mammoth HRs, J-Up busts out in big way

As Justin Upton simmered over the 420-foot double he hit off the center-field wall Saturday night, denied a game-tying home run by inches in his first game back in the lineup, he was asked if he could still take positives out of his return. "I try to take positives out of every day," he said early Sunday morning.

8/21/2016 | After extended breather, J-Up nearly delivers

Justin Upton spent three days out of the Tigers lineup, working with hitting coach Wally Joyner on his swing. His best swing on his return will go down as a 420-foot double, and his latest initiation to the deep dimensions of Comerica Park.

8/20/2016 | Red Sox edge Tigers on Papi's 2-run HR

8/19/2016 | Tigers look to reward Norris vs. Pomeranz, Red Sox

Daniel Norris has allowed one earned run in each of his two starts since returning from an oblique injury, but he is 0-1 in that span. Norris will be looking for his first win since June 29 when he and the Tigers face Drew Pomeranz and the Red Sox on Saturday at Comerica Park.


8/19/2016 | Maybin, Zimmermann, Pelfrey progressing

The list of injured Tigers has been growing for long enough. It's finally nearing time where the list can start dwindling. Cameron Maybin could be among the first.


8/19/2016 | Romine producing without putting ball in play

The list of Major League leaders in bases-loaded walks includes reigning American League MVP Josh Donaldson, his slugging Toronto teammate Troy Tulowitzki, home run producers Chris Carter and Mark Reynolds, and selective slugger Shin-Soo Choo. It also includes Andrew Romine.


8/18/2016 | Tigers rediscover clutch gene at right moment

The Tigers don't put too much emphasis on one game, let alone innings. It's a 162-game schedule, and at least publicly, they like to treat them relatively equally. And yet, as they wound down from two dramatic innings and a 4-3 win over the Red Sox Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park, they were in agreement: It was big.


8/18/2016 | Dombrowski: 'Mixed emotions' in Detroit return

8/18/2016 | Upton gets time to clear head; Presley in left

When Tigers manager Brad Ausmus sat Justin Upton out of Wednesday's game, he was asked if he thought about sitting Upton for a few days, like the Pirates did with Andrew McCutchen. They considered it, Ausmus said at the time.


8/18/2016 | Porcello set for first start in Detroit with Sox

Rick Porcello (16-3, 3.30 ERA) will make his first start at Comerica Park since the Tigers traded him to the Red Sox after the 2014 season when the clubs meet Friday for the second of a four-game series rife with Wild Card implications. Porcello, having the best season of his career, will square off vs. Tigers rookie Michael Fulmer (10-3, 2.25 ERA).


8/18/2016 | Gonsalves, Giolito among top prospect performers Wednesday

Everything is going right when Stephen Gonsalves takes the ball these days. The Twins' No. 4 prospect extended his scoreless streak to 21 innings with six near-perfect frames for Double-A Chattanooga on Wednesday.


8/18/2016 | Anibal rediscovering ability to dominate

Veteran righty Anibal Sanchez has had a shaky season, but things have started to look up for him lately. His ERA has approached 7.00 often this year, but he has turned in quality starts in three of his last four outings and has posted a 1.67 ERA in his last four home starts.


8/17/2016 | Surging Red Sox look to keep on rolling

In a scheduling rarity, the Red Sox open a four-game road series in Detroit with a 1:08 p.m. ET matinee on Thursday. And this, after playing a night game in Baltimore on Wednesday.


8/17/2016 | Collins (bruised knee) joins list of hobbled Tigers

8/17/2016 | Hosmer the spark as KC caps sweep at Detroit

Eric Hosmer, not satisfied with breaking up Anibal Sanchez's bids for a perfect game and later a no-hitter, dealt Detroit a decisive blow with a tiebreaking two-run home run in the ninth, sending Kansas City to a 4-1 win on Wednesday night at Comerica Park. The win handed the Royals their first sweep of the Tigers in Detroit since 2008.


8/17/2016 | Whether starter or reserve, Aybar can help Tigers

8/17/2016 | Tigers see timing as root of Upton's struggles

Asked if offseason prize Justin Upton has been weighed down by a slow bat, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said, "His bat's not slow. I think he's out of sync mechanically. His timing's off."
