Skubal 'optimistic' after fatigue forces early exit

August 2, 2022

Torkelson doing OK after being hit on helmet

July 2, 2022

Tigers pause Mize's rehab after rough start

May 14, 2022

Casey Mize will pause his rehab assignment, the Tigers announced. They’re not calling it a setback, but Mize's rough start for Triple-A Toledo on Thursday gave them reason to believe he’s not ready to return to action. “Casey’s going back to Lakeland. We’re going to slow him down a little

April 16, 2022

Greene 'bummed' but undeterred by injury

April 5, 2022

Infielder Paredes recalled from Triple-A as corresponding move
June 19, 2021

The finger injury that forced Niko Goodrum out of Friday’s Tigers loss will keep him out a little while. It doesn’t appear to be major, but the absence will be long enough for the Tigers to get another look at Isaac Paredes as a shortstop. The Tigers placed Goodrum on
