Anthony Fenech Detroit Free Press Published 2:37 p.m. UTC Jul 7, 2018 If Jordan Zimmermann is back, if he is truly back to being the pitcher the Detroit Tigers spent $110 million on three offseasons ago, only time will tell. But Zimmermann looked the part Friday night against the Texas Rangers, spinning his best start in three injury-riddled seasons. “I don’t think he ever left,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “I think it’s all about health. When he’s healthy, he can do these things. If you saw him in Washington, you know he was one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball.” Zimmermann put up a line he hadn’t since his days with the Nationals, striking out 11 batters over eight spectacular innings in a 3-1 win at Comerica Park. He was so good that it was easy to forget how his day began: By allowing a lead-off home run. Zimmermann’s night didn’t appear out of nowhere.

Anthony Fenech Detroit Free Press Published 12:44 p.m. UTC Jul 4, 2018 CHICAGO – It was around this time last year when, every five days, speculation would arise about whether Justin Verlander was making his final start with the Detroit Tigers. Now, as a rite of passage of sorts, that speculation swirls every time Michael Fulmer takes the mound. Fulmer was back on the bump at Wrigley Field on Tuesday, pitching in front of at least one executive whose team needs starting pitching — the Brewers — and perhaps other incognito scouts. He was dominant at times but once again was unable to earn a win, throwing six solid innings against a top-notch Chicago Cubs lineup. He threw all of his pitches — most notably, his change-up more frequently — but was burned by a few set-up pitches in the fifth inning. The Cubs doubled three times off Fulmer to open the frame. Tommy La Stella sent a fly ball into the jet stream for a ground-rule double … [Read more...] about Detroit Tigers might be wise to trade Michael Fulmer. Here’s why
Orion Sang Detroit Free Press Published 10:05 p.m. UTC Jun 27, 2018 The Detroit Tigers announced Wednesday afternoon that they had fired pitching coach Chris Bosio, effective immediately, for insensitive comments made to a team employee that violated team policy. It was a bombshell dropped into Detroit’s clubhouse as the team was mired in a seven-game losing streak, and it left several players trying to make sense of what happened while preparing for Wednesday night’s game against the visiting Oakland Athletics. “It’s unfortunate,” said reliever Alex Wilson. “Very few and far between you see a coach dismissed in the middle of the season, and for an incident like (the one that) occurred, it is unfortunate. “From our side of things, the Tigers side of things, we’re sorry to everybody that it affected. It’s not a good day here. It’s a sad day. But we’re going to move forward, and hopefully this brings us closer than … [Read more...] about Detroit Tigers players on Bosio’s firing: ‘It’s not a good day here’
