Top Tigers News

  • Tigers' Spencer Torkelson: Reaches 30 home runs

    Torkelson went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Royals.

    Torkelson popped his 30th home run of the season in the 7-3 win, giving him six long balls this month. That's on top of nine home runs in August as the youngster has upped his power output down the stretch. Torkelson could still stand to improve his batting average moving forward, but he's a legitimate slugger who has plenty of fantasy upside.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Pops 21st home run

    Rogers went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's suspended game against the Royals, which resumed Thursday.

    Rogers hit his 21st home run of the season in the eighth inning as he continues to increase his career-best total. He came into the year with 10 total long balls in his first two MLB campaigns. Heading into 2024, Rogers has established some fantasy value due to his power potential and his role as Detroit's top catcher, though his upside is capped due to his high strikeout rate and perennially low batting average.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Goes deep Wednesday

    Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run, two runs scored and two total RBI in Wednesday's suspended contest against the Royals, which resumed Thursday.

    With Cabrera wrapping up his incredible career this weekend, the veteran showed a flash of his vintage form to reach 511 career home runs, which moves him into a tie with Mel Ott for 25th all time. He hasn't looked like a feared slugger often this season, though, as he only has four long balls and a .661 OPS. Cabrera has nine total home runs the last two years after reaching double figures every season during his career previously except for 2018, when he only played in 38 games due to injury.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Sitting against lefty

    Baddoo isn't starting Thursday against the Royals.

    Baddoo will step out of the lineup for the final game of the Tigers' series against Kansas City as southpaw Cole Ragans starts on the mound for the Royals. Matt Vierling will move to left field while Andre Lipcius picks up a start at third base.

  • Tigers' Javier Baez: Taking seat Thursday

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Sitting Thursday

    Rogers isn't in the Tigers' lineup Thursday against Kansas City.

    Rogers will get a breather Thursday after going 1-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in his previous game. Carson Kelly will get the nod behind the dish and bat eighth while Rogers is out.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Not in Thursday's lineup

    Cabrera is not in the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Royals.

    Cabrera finished out the completion of Wednesday's suspended game earlier in the day Thursday, but he'll start on the bench for the regularly-scheduled contest. The future Hall of Famer is expected to start all three games this weekend versus the Guardians before riding off into retirement.

  • Tigers' Reese Olson: Narrowly misses quality start

    Olson did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings against Kansas City. He struck out seven.

    The 24-year-old allowed just one unearned run, courtesy of his own throwing error, through the first five frames Tuesday. He surrendered his only earned run on back-to-back hits to start the sixth, and despite punching out the next two batters, Olson was lifted after 5.2 innings and 92 pitches, much to the dismay of fantasy managers in leagues that reward quality starts. After surrendering six earned runs to the Cubs on Aug. 22, Olson has held opponents to fewer than three tallies in six consecutive outings, posting a 1.51 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 35:13 K:BB across 35.2 innings. During that same stretch, the right-handed rookie has lowered his season-long ERA from 5.29 to 3.99, considerably increasing his fantasy draft stock for the 2024 campaign.

  • Tigers' Jason Foley: Earns third win

    Foley (3-3) pitched around a hit and a walk to record a clean inning of relief and earn the win Tuesday against the Royals. He struck out one.

    Foley got into a little bit of trouble but managed to escape, thanks in large part to a double-play grounder off the bat of Bobby Witt. The righty reliever has been solid all season for the Tigers with a 2.65 ERA, and he leads the team with 28 holds. He's also managed to record seven saves, giving him some fantasy value here and there.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Hits 11th home run

    Baddoo hit a pinch-hit home run during his lone at-bat in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Royals.

    Baddoo provided some offense off the bench, though it's a bit concerning that he was out of the starting lineup in a matchup against veteran righty Zack Greinke. The Tigers have been eliminated from playoff contention, so they may mix and match their lineups the rest of the way to get a look at some different players, which could make Baddoo's playing time unpredictable over the final handful of games.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Goes deep Tuesday

    Meadows went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Royals.

    Meadows provided a jolt from the leadoff spot, hitting his second home run of the month and third of his young career. The 23-year-old outfielder now has consecutive two-hit efforts and is batting .290 over his last 10 games. For the season, Meadows is hitting .223 with a .700 OPS.

  • Tigers' Alex Faedo: Shut down for season

    Faedo will miss the rest of the season after undergoing a procedure Wednesday to repair his right middle fingernail, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Faedo underwent a procedure to remove a portion of the same fingernail earlier this season. He landed on the injured list last Tuesday due to a blister on his finger and had a slim chance of returning for the final game of the year, but he will now shift his focus to getting ready for the start of next season. Faedo finishes 2023 with a 4.45 ERA and 1.05 WHIP alongside a 58:20 K:BB through 64.2 innings.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Rogers is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's tilt versus the Royals, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    He has now yielded to Carson Kelly in four of the last six contests. September has been one of Rogers' best offensive months to this point, as he's put up an .810 OPS with four home runs.

  • Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Out of lineup again

    Baddoo is not in the lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Royals, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    It marks the third time in four games that Baddoo has been absent from the lineup, although this is the first time it's happened against a right-hander. Baddoo is hitless over his last six contests. Matt Vierling will handle left field.
