8/28/2015 | Boyd takes lesson from homers surrendered
By all statistics, it was a mismatch well before the Blue Jays hit three home runs in a 5-3 Tigers loss Friday night. For the 24-year-old Matt Boyd, however, it was a learning experience in his seventh Major League start.
8/28/2015 | Gose shows power, defensive ability in return

8/28/2015 | Fulmer wins Eastern League Pitcher of the Year
Before the Tigers acquired Michael Fulmer in the Yoenis Cespedes trade, the big right-hander was a dominant pitcher in the Mets' system at Double-A Binghamton. He didn't let up once he jumped across the league to Erie, and the combined effort earned him the Eastern League's Pitcher of the Year award.
8/28/2015 | Price welcomes former teammates to Toronto
David Price saw his former Tigers teammates Friday afternoon, and it was like he never left. He said hello to defensive coordinator Matt Martin and staff in the dugout long before batting practice. He made his way through the visitors' clubhouse at Rogers Centre and hugged just about everybody.
8/28/2015 | Hutchison returns as Blue Jays take on Tigers
The last time the Tigers' Buck Farmer took the mound, he took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, a scoreless outing into the sixth, then gave up three runs without retiring a batter. That in itself is progress, but his work doesn't get any easier against righty Drew Hutchison and a Blue Jays lineup that is crushing the ball against all sorts of pitching right now.
8/28/2015 | Trio of solo blasts power Blue Jays past Tigers
Troy Tulowitzki, Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista hit solo shots to power the Blue Jays to a 5-3 victory over the Tigers in the series opener at Rogers Centre on Friday.
8/27/2015 | Wolf not yet conceding to Father Time
Randy Wolf continues to work ahead in the count on Father Time. He doesn't need run support for that. He does need it to get a result on the field.

Days before the Tigers will expand their roster, Triple-A Toledo outfielder Steven Moya made a notable position move.
8/27/2015 | McCann maintains calm amid no-no bid
James McCann learns quickly, as one would expect from the son of a rocket scientist. The way McCann handled his late-inning mound visit with Justin Verlander, one would've thought he was the son of a negotiator.
8/27/2015 | Stats of the Day: Verlander eyed no-no No. 3
Bidding to become the sixth pitcher in big league history with at least three no-hitters, Justin Verlander didn't allow a knock until Chris Iannetta lined a single just fair to left field to begin the ninth. Verlander settled for a one-hit shutout as the Tigers blanked the Angels, 5-0.

Justin Verlander has been here enough times that he's starting to know the club by heart.
8/27/2015 | Ausmus: Review choice no factor in lost no-no
After further review, the Tigers didn't need the insurance run they were trying for in the eighth, not with Justin Verlander dealing. The way this season has gone, though, a no-hit bid wouldn't have stopped manager Brad Ausmus from fighting for it.
8/26/2015 | Verlander's one-hitter a characteristic return to form
There was obviously disappointment that the no-hitter was not achieved. But this was still a night of triumph for Verlander.
8/26/2015 | McCann: Verlander's bid 'heck of a night'
It took until the eighth inning of Wednesday's 5-0 win over the Angels for Tigers right fielder J.D. Martinez to realize the feat that Justin Verlander was approaching.

Tigers right-hander Shane Greene will undergo an operation Thursday morning to repair the circumflex artery in his throwing shoulder, and he will miss the remainder of the season.
8/26/2015 | Shoemaker set for return in Angels-Tigers finale
Matt Shoemaker will make his return to the Major Leagues on Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park when his Angels face the Tigers in the finale of a three-game series.
8/26/2015 | Wild night by Simon a dubious achievement
The Tigers were hoping Alfredo Simon's one-hit shutout last week could set up a late-season bounceback. On Tuesday, it was his pitches that bounced, or in one case sailed, that doomed him at inopportune times.
8/25/2015 | Cabrera has seventh straight multi-hit game
Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is making up for lost time. With a third-inning double, a seventh-inning single and an eighth-inning single during Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Angels, Cabrera reached seven straight multi-hit games, matching a career high.
8/25/2015 | Verlander, Santiago face off in Motor City

The Angels counter with Hector Santiago (7-7, 2.91).
8/24/2015 | Farmer, 'pen can't harvest seeds of gem
Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has had to talk plenty about his pitching all season. Monday's 12-5 loss to the Reds, after the Tigers once held a 5-0 lead, was just the latest, and he summed up the 10-run sixth inning off Buck Farmer and the relief corps succinctly.
8/24/2015 | Miggy about to re-enter AL batting race
Monday's 2-for-5 performance in a 12-5 loss to the Reds left Miguel Cabrera with a .367 batting average, which would lead the Majors by 32 points and the American League by 47 if he had enough at-bats to qualify.
