Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Return for 2023 confirmed
Cabrera will return for the 2023 season, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Cabrera will turn 40 in April and has been a below-average hitter in four of the last six seasons, but he has 32 million reasons to return next year. The 2023 season will be the final guaranteed year of the eight-year, $248 million extension Cabrera signed prior to the 2014 season. His contract contains vesting options for 2024 and 2025, but it would take a top-10 MVP finish for those years to vest. Cabrera has been about as far from MVP level as possible this season, hitting just .251/.299/.315 while exclusively serving as the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Sits again Saturday
Candelario remains on the bench for Saturday's game against the Twins.
Candelario's age-28 season has been a disappointing one, as his .210/.267/.360 slash line (78 wRC+) represents a significant drop from the .278/.356/.458 line (125 wRC+) he managed over the previous two years. He'll sit for the second straight game, with Brendon Davis getting the nod at third base.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Sitting Saturday
Cabrera isn't starting Saturday against the Twins.
Cabrera went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts during Friday's series opener against Minnesota, and he'll head to the bench for the second time in the last three games. Javier Baez is serving as the designated hitter while Ryan Kreidler starts at shortstop.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Tyler Alexander: Tagged for three runs
Alexander (4-11) took the loss to the Twins on Friday, allowing three runs on five hits while striking out six and walking four over five innings.
Alexander had a rough outing Friday, tossing 57 of 90 pitches for strikes and allowing nine baserunners. The hits and walks turned out to be Alexander's biggest downfall as all three runs he allowed came thanks to an RBI single, double and triple. Friday's appearance comes after back-to-back quality starts for the lefty, who saw his ERA rise to 4.72 after the outing.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Willi Castro: Hits injured list as expected
Castro (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday.
The move was an expected one, as Castro was ruled out for the season after straining his left hamstring while running the bases Thursday against the Royals. Castro will end the year with a .241/.284/.367 slash line, homering eight times and stealing nine bases in 112 games. Brendon Davis was recalled to take his place on the roster.... See More ...

Tigers' Brendon Davis: Promoted to majors
Davis was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Friday.
Davis has yet to play in a major league game in his career, but he has enjoyed a solid season in Triple-A this season. He holds a .235/.340/.423 slash line alongside 20 home runs and 72 RBI. He will likely serve as a depth piece for the Tigers for the rest of the season with Willi Castro (hamstring) moving to the 10-day injured list, ending his campaign.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Heads to bench
Candelario will sit Thursday against the Twins.
Candelario has gone 8-for-20 with four doubles across his last six games, though that's only been enough to drag his season-long slash line up to .210/.267/.360. Harold Castro will start at third base Friday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Remains out of lineup
Haase isn't starting Friday against the Twins.
Haase has gone 2-for-8 with two runs, three walks and a strikeout over the last four matchups but will be on the bench for the third time in the last four games. Tucker Barnhart is starting behind the plate and batting ninth.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Cruises to win Thursday
Rodriguez (5-5) tossed 6.2 scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Royals. He allowed five hits and four walks while striking out three.
The four walks were a bit high, but it was otherwise a stellar outing for Rodriguez. The lefty has now registered three straight quality starts, with wins in two of those games. Rodriguez was out due to personal reasons for about two and half months, so he's only made 16 starts to date in his first season with the Tigers. He could be primed for a strong 2023 campaign if he makes 30 or more starts, which he did in his previous two seasons heading into this year. Rodriguez is lined up to make one final 2022 start Tuesday against the Mariners.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Registers three hits in win
Barnhart went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored and two RBI in Thursday's 10-3 win over the Royals.
Barnhart is batting just .221 this season, but he managed to provide a nice offensive boost Thursday. It was the catcher's fourth three-hit effort of the year and his second in September. Barnhart may see a few more starts in relief of Eric Haase before the season wraps up, and he's unlikely to provide much more fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Javier Baez: Goes deep Thursday
Baez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Thursday's 10-3 win over the Royals.
Baez played a big role in the blowout win with his 16th home run of the season leading the way. He's still just over half of the way to the 31 long balls he hit in 2021, as his production has dipped across the board in his first year with the Tigers. Baez is still capable of breaking out in 2023, and he figures to come at a discount in fantasy drafts.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Willi Castro: Out for season
Castro (hamstring) will miss the rest of the season, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
After leaving Thursday's victory over Kansas City early with a strained left hamstring, Castro will officially be shut down for the season. He finishes the season with a .651 OPS -- up from .624 in 2021 -- alongside seven home runs and 30 RBI. The Tigers will officially announce the roster move and his replacement Friday.... See More ...

Tigers' Willi Castro: Diagnosed with hamstring strain
Castro exited Thursday's game against the Royals due to a left hamstring strain.
Castro appeared to sustain his injury while running to second base on a double in the fourth inning after he hit a solo homer in the second. The severity of the issue isn't yet known, but the 25-year-old will presumably be monitored in the coming days to determine his status for the final few games of the regular season.... See More ...

Tigers' Willi Castro: Leaves with hamstring issue
Castro was removed from Thursday's game against the Royals with an apparent hamstring injury, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Castro hit a solo homer during the second inning and suffered the hamstring injury while running to second base on his double in the fourth. The specifics of the issue remain unclear, but an absence of any length could end the season for the 25-year-old with only six games left on the schedule.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Recalled from Triple-A
Clemens was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.
Clemens was optioned to Toledo earlier this month, but he was brought back to take the roster spot of Kerry Carpenter (back), who was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. Clemens, who owns a .504 OPS at the top level this season, figures to fill a super-utility role over the final week of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
