Daily Linking – 8/26

26.08.2008 3 comments

Links of note, or stuff I find interesting, or stuff I think you might find interesting Tigers to try Larish at third – Jeff Larish heads to the Arizona Fall League to work on fielding the hot corner. Smart move since he's effectively blocked at first base. At the very least maybe he increases his […]

Willis being mixed into rotation

31.05.2008 7 comments

It’s been a couple weeks since Dontrelle Willis came off the disabled list. He’s made all of one appearance. That will change this week when he splits a start with splits a start with Armando Galarraga. Willis will pitch the first 4 to 5 innings and Galarraga will pitch the rest. It’s an unorthodox move […]

Dontrelle Willis is almost back and headed to the pen

21.05.2008 37 comments

WDFN is reporting that Dontrelle Willis will rejoin the team today or tomorrow and will head to the pen while Armando Galarraga stays in the rotation. UPDATE: Old news now, but the corresponding roster move was Clay Rapada getting DL’d due to bicep tendinitis. Rapada certainly struggled his last time out so which may have […]

Tigers to skip Galarraga and Dontrelle’s rehab

10.05.2008 4 comments

Though it’s not really a surprise, when Dontrelle Willis comes back he’ll be taking Armando Galarraga’s spot in the rotation. Or perhaps Galarraga will be returning Willis’s spot. You could see this was the plan when Willis started his last rehab assignment on the same night Galarraga was pitching. Dontrelle will make rehab starts for […]

Dontrelle Willis finds strike zone in Toledo

02.05.2008 6 comments

Dontrelle Willis made his first rehab start for the Toledo Mud Hens. The one thing everybody should be looking for was to see if Willis had regained any modicum of control. I haven’t seen postgame reports or interviews yet, but the box score tells a favorable story. Willis pitched 4.2 innings and allowed 4 hits […]

Willis slips on to the DL, Guillen to miss time

12.04.2008 7 comments

Dontrelle Willis is landing on the disabled list because he didn’t land correctly on Friday night. The initial diagnosis was a hyperextended knee and that was confirmed today by an MRI that revealed no structural damage. He’s not expected to miss significant time, but he wasn’t going to make his next start. Armando Galarraga will […]

Finding a 6th starter

11.04.2008 23 comments

On the second batter of the Friday night’s game Dontrelle Willis slipped and hyper-extended his knee. It’s unclear at this point whether the knee injury will cause Willis to hit the DL, but given his control problems this year it might not be a bad idea regardless. If the Tigers do need a new starter, […]

Minor Notes

05.02.2008 2 comments

Tigers fans who dig minor league baseball are especially fortunate. The resources covering the Tigers are remarkable and go beyond the work that you’ll find at Baseball America or Minor League Ball. Both of these sites are great, but they have to cover 30 teams’ minor league systems. The Tigers have multiple blogs focused on […]
