The Detroit Tigers right-hander will bundle up when it's wet and chilly if he's not pitching.
The Detroit Tigers have figured out how to beat the Cleveland Indians after failing miserably against them past year.
Once the regular season started, Carrasco picked up where he left off a year ago.
In the star slugger's first game since being sidelined, the Detroit Tigers weren't taking any chances with his health.
Pirates 12, Reds 3 • Josh Harrison hit a three-run homer - his third in two games - and righthander Tyler Glasnow singled home two runs during a six-run rally that swept Pittsburgh to the win at Cincinnati. Tribe manager Terry Francona said he always knows when Cabrera is due to bat during a game against the Tigers. He singled in his first two at-bats against Norris, so perhaps that's a sign of better things to come. On the throw to first, Cabrera tried to take third, but first baseman Carlos Santana threw him out on a close play. Despite a four-game losing streak occurring during Cabrera's absence, the Tigers still managed five wins without the slugger. "That's impactful. He's had a lot to deal with". This was Almonte's first start in center field this year, and that play was the only one which presented any challenge for him.
Lonnie Chisenhall had an RBI triple for the Indians, who are 1-4 against the Tigers after going 14-4 against them last season.
Hicks was sent back down to Toledo yesterday, upon Miguel Cabrera's return to the lineup, but Adduci will remain in Detroit for the time being. "That being said, what Hicks did while Miggy was out, he was awesome". Justin Verlander, who gave up nine runs to the Indians on April 15, held them to two in seven innings the following evening. "If you're not quite locked in, it makes your pitches that much worse".
Mets lefty Steven Matz suffered the same injury in 2015, which sidelined him for two months, and a source this week said the Mets expected Syndergaard's injury likely would require a longer recovery time. "You can't feel your fingers after a few pitches out there. That's really all it was". He has went at least six innings in all five starts, allowing no more than three runs.
Fulmer has made 13 career starts at Comerica Park and posted a 3.00 ERA.
