Top Tigers News

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Idle Saturday

    Canha isn't in the Tigers' lineup Saturday against the Twins.

    Canha will get a chance to regroup after striking out three times in four at-bats during Friday's win in the first game of the series. Riley Greene, Parker Meadows and Wenceel Perez will start across the Tigers' outfield while the 35-year-old rests.

  • Tigers' Carson Kelly: Sits down Saturday

    Kelly will get a day off Saturday after going 1-for-4 with two strikeouts during Friday's series opener. Jake Rogers will start behind the plate instead and bat ninth.

  • Tigers' Buddy Kennedy: Recalled from Toledo

    The Tigers recalled Kennedy from Triple-A Toledo on Saturday.

    With Gio Urshela (hamstring) headed to the injured list, Kennedy will come up from the minors to add depth to Detroit's infield unit. Matt Vierling has served as Urshela's replacement at third base since he was injured during Friday's game, but Kennedy could see a few starts on days Vierling rests or plays in the outfield.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Placed on IL

    The Tigers placed Urshela on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right hamstring strain.

    Urshela suffered the injury while running to first base during Friday's win and had to be removed from the game in the second inning. Matt Vierling will start at third base Saturday and could be in line to do so regularly while Urshela is out, though the newly-promoted Buddy Kennedy may also see a few starts.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Big effort Friday

    Perez went 3-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 5-4 win over the Twins. He also stole a base.

    Perez batted second, which he's done in each of his last two starts, and responded with a strong game. The 24-year-old is still in a reserve role for the Tigers, though he's been playing well in his MLB debut, posting a .313/.353/.500 slash line across 16 at-bats. If Perez is able to earn more playing time at some point, his fantasy value would trend upward.

  • Tigers' Andrew Chafin: Records win Friday

    Chafin (2-0) tossed 1.1 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Friday against the Twins.

    Chafin continued his strong play to start the season, lowering his ERA to 2.08, and he now has two early wins as well. The lefty struggled to a 4.73 ERA last year with Arizona and Milwaukee, but he was strong for the Tigers back in 2022, posting a 2.83 ERA and 67 strikeouts across 57.1 innings. It looks like he may be back to that form in his second stint in Detroit.

  • Tigers' Jack Flaherty: Fans 10 in no-decision

    Flaherty allowed four runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk over six innings in a no-decision Friday. He struck out 10 during the win over Minnesota.

    Flaherty was tagged with a two-run shot in the first inning but turned in four shutout frames after that. The Twins later pushed across two unearned runs in the sixth. Flaherty's produced a terrific 30:3 K:BB through 24.1 innings this season. That 11.1 K/9 is currently a career-high and his first time producing a double-digit number in that category since the 2020 campaign. He also set a new season high with 19 whiffs. Flaherty is currently in line to take the mound in Tampa Bay next week.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Collects four hits

    Carpenter went 4-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over the Twins.

    Carpenter doubled and scored in the first inning before knocking three singles throughout the rest of the night. He's now 9-for-21 (.429) with five extra-base hits over his last five contests. This hot stretch has boosted his season slash line to .328/.371/.621 through 62 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Notches save Friday

    Foley issued a walk and struck out one batter in a scoreless inning Friday. He earned a save in the win over Minnesota.

    Foley worked around a two-out walk to finish off the 5-4 win Friday. He's now converted all six of his save chances and is riding a 10-inning scoreless streak to open the 2024 campaign. The 28-year-old has produced a 10:6 K:BB during that span. However, four of those walks have come over his last 2.2 frames.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Exits with hamstring injury

    Urshela was removed from Friday's game against the Twins due to right hamstring tightness.

    Urshela appeared to be limping toward the dugout after grounding out in the second inning, and he was replaced at third base by Matt Vierling once the Tigers took the field. The severity of Urshela's injury remains unknown, but Zach McKinstry would likely benefit from additional playing time should the 32-year-old have to miss a few games.

  • Tigers' Sawyer Gipson-Long: Undergoing Tommy John surgery

    Gipson-Long is set to undergo Tommy John surgery Monday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    After having multiple doctors examine his elbow, the decision has been made for Gipson-Long to get UCL reconstruction on his right elbow. The right-hander started the season on the 15-day IL with a groin injury, and he was progressing in his rehab assignment before experiencing right forearm tightness. Gipson-Long will be shelved for the rest of the season and will likely miss much of 2025.

  • Tigers' Javier Baez: Out of lineup Friday

    Baez is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Baez has found some success at the plate recently with an .871 OPS across the past five games, but he'll head to the bench for Friday's series opener at Minnesota. Zach McKinstry will step in at shortstop and bat seventh.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Receives breather Friday

    Greene is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Minnesota, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Greene started Detroit's first 19 games of the season but will receive a well-deserved day off for the series opener versus the Twins. Wenceel Perez will take over in right field and bat second.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Reaches four times Thursday

    Canha went 2-for-3 with two walks, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Rangers.

    Canha continues to provide steady production for the Tigers, as he has an .837 OPS across 18 games. The veteran outfielder recorded a .755 OPS last season and has actually only finished above .800 once during his MLB career, which came back in 2019 when he posted a .913 OPS and hit a career-high 26 home runs with the Athletics. Even if he slips into the .700 range, Canha should remain a solid if not spectacular fantasy asset.

  • Tigers' Javier Baez: Doubles twice in loss

    Baez went 2-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Rangers.

    The doubles were Baez's first of the season, and he's still sitting on just one home run across 17 games. The shortstop isn't hitting a ton of singles either, as he's batting just .172. While he's shown an ability in the past to heat up quickly, his struggles the past few seasons don't instill a ton of confidence. Baez should continue to see regular playing time, however, giving him an opportunity to turn things around.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Tallies two extra-base hits

    Greene went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a triple, an RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Rangers.

    While Greene's batting average is still a bit underwhelming at .239, his .849 OPS is stronger due to eight extra-base knocks through 19 games. In fact, exactly half of the outfielder's hits have gone for extra bases so far. Greene is heating up, and with his ability to leg out doubles or hit the ball over the wall, he should be primed for good numbers the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Kenta Maeda: Short outing vs. Rangers

    Maeda did not factor into the decision Thursday against the Rangers, allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits and two walks over 2.2 innings. He struck out two.

    It was a tough day for Maeda against a potent Texas offense -- the right-hander gave up five runs, including three homers, before departing in the third inning. Maeda's ERA is up to 7.64 while allowing an AL-worst seven home runs across his first four starts (17.2 innings). He'll look to get on track in his next outing, currently slated for early next week in Tampa Bay.
