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

Tigers rookie outfielder sustains right shoulder sprain; Hinch: 'We'll see'
June 10, 2021

DETROIT -- Derek Hill's teammates have seen it before, the highlight catch on a ball seemingly over his head. That doesn’t make catches like Wednesday night’s grab in a 9-6 loss to the Mariners humdrum, but it doesn’t make them surprising for the Tigers’ No. 30 prospect, according to MLB

DETROIT -- As expected, the Tigers placed right-hander José Ureña on the 10-day injured list on Saturday with a right forearm strain. They’re not expecting him to be on there for long. Though Ureña’s lower right forearm strain sounds like a bad injury, given how often it seems to happen

Torkelson (hamstring) expects quick return 

May 25, 2021

Spencer Torkelson's left hamstring tightness doesn’t sound likely to keep the Tigers' top prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, out more than a few days at High-A West Michigan. He told Whitecaps radio broadcaster Dan Hasty on Tuesday that it’s “not out of the equation” he could return to action by

Notes: Cabrera diagnosis; coach confab

April 12, 2021

HOUSTON -- The on-field playfulness that Miguel Cabrera and Jose Altuve usually engage in when the Tigers roll through town will have to wait until the Astros come to Detroit. But the good news for the Tigers on Monday is that they might not have to wait long to get

April 11, 2021

The wince on a foul ball and grab at his left arm was not a good sign for Miguel Cabrera in the seventh inning of Saturday’s 11-3 loss. His left biceps, a trouble spot previously in his career, have been quietly bothering him for a while. Once Tigers manager A.J.
