11/20/2014 | Tigers claim Zeid from Astros, designate Carrera

The Tigers' search for bullpen help led them to the waiver wire on the day Major League teams have to set their 40-man rosters. Josh Zeid isn't the big-name signing that many expect the Tigers to make, but he's the kind of waiver claim they often seek out at this time of year.

11/20/2014 | Tigers had talks with Astros about acquiring a catcher

The Tigers picked up the club option on Alex Avila's contract earlier this week, but they remain in the news surrounding catching. While Major League sources confirmed a report from that Detroit had talks with the Astros about their catching surplus, the source said talks ended with the Tigers moving on.

11/20/2014 | Tigers protect Nesbitt, Machado from Rule 5 Draft

11/19/2014 | Trammell, Parrish to host baseball camp Dec. 13

While Alan Trammell and Lance Parrish have come back to the Tigers' organization over the past 12 months, their ties to the city have been maintained for a while through their work at Wayne State University in midtown Detroit. The two will host their fifth annual baseball camp there Saturday, Dec. 13.

11/19/2014 | Shoring up bullpen remains on Tigers' agenda

The Tigers took care of two of their most pressing needs last week by re-signing Victor Martinez and trading for Anthony Gose. They likely have a waiting game ahead of them if they're going to make any move on retaining Max Scherzer. That leaves some time to address other parts, such as the bullpen, even if it's not the major move many might pine for.

11/18/2014 | Tigers considering prospects for Rule 5 protection

The Tigers have some decisions to make regarding their top prospects on Thursday that could have an impact well beyond 2015.

11/18/2014 | Tigers may be weighing 'Scherzer or Price?'

We can all agree (I think) that Max Scherzer is the top arm available in free agency. The dude turned down $144 million after his 2013 American League Cy Young Award-winning season and backed that up with a '14 season in which his numbers remained elite and -- several scouts will tell you -- his stuff was in some ways more polished. But monitor the Scherzer free-agent market, and what do you hear? Crickets.

11/17/2014 | Tigers pick up 2015 option on Avila

The Tigers announced Monday that they've picked up their $5.4 million option on Alex Avila, bypassing his final season of arbitration. The club option was part of the contract that the team and Avila's agent, Jim Murray, negotiated last winter to avoid arbitration. The Tigers had until Thursday to decide.

11/16/2014 | Tigers not closing door on Scherzer's return

The Tigers officially brought back Victor Martinez on Friday, which was expected to shut the door on any possibility of a return by Max Scherzer. Instead, the door might well have opened just a crack.

11/15/2014 | Top performances, prospects from 2014 Fall League

The Arizona Fall League is known as baseball's finishing school because it has graduated a ton of talent to the Major Leagues since it began play in 1992. Here are the development highlights from the AFL's 23rd season for all 30 big league organizations.

11/14/2014 | Tigers bring back Hanrahan with Minor League deal

11/13/2014 | V-Mart runner-up for AL MVP as voters don't dismiss DH

For the first time since 2010, the American League Most Valuable Player Award winner is not a Detroit Tiger. Victor Martinez came about as close as any designated hitter ever has. While Angels center fielder Mike Trout finally beat out a Detroiter for AL MVP honors, winning the vote unanimously, Martinez finished as the runner-up. The DH received 16 of the 30 second-place votes, twice as many as third-place finisher Michael Brantley of the Indians.

11/13/2014 | Scherzer ready to capitalize on market

In the normal free-agency story, the questions are: Where is he going? And how much is he getting? These elements are obviously present with Max Scherzer. But in his case you also get the answer to another question that just won't go away: Was turning down that six-year, $144 million deal from the Tigers a smart move?

11/12/2014 | Deal with V-Mart reflects Tigers' win-now strategy

Victor Martinez was the one player the Detroit Tigers weren't going to let leave. Let's not sweat the small stuff. If you're caught up in the Tigers giving a four-year contract to a player who'll be 36 on Opening Day next season, you're missing the larger point. This isn't about 2017 or 2018. This is about now. About winning a World Series. In 2015.

11/12/2014 | Tigers acquire hopeful starting center fielder Gose for Travis

The Blue Jays and Tigers swapped young players on Wednesday night, with Toronto sending center fielder Anthony Gose to Detroit for second-base prospect Devon Travis.

The Tigers and Victor Martinez agreed to terms Wednesday on a four-year contract, according to reports from baseball's General Managers Meetings in Phoenix.

11/12/2014 | V-Mart's historic season marked by consistency, value

For someone who essentially had to do more than a positional player to garner serious consideration, Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez has earned a fair look as American League Most Valuable Player.

11/12/2014 | Ray builds momentum in Arizona Fall League

Robbie Ray, who could be in the mix for a spot in the Tigers' rotation in 2015, impressed during his four-start stint in the AFL.

11/11/2014 | Many priorities for Tigers, but V-Mart tops list

The Tigers have won the American League Central each of the last four seasons. Whether they extend that streak in 2015 could depend partly on how they deal with the fact that three of their top players -- Max Scherzer, Victor Martinez and Torii Hunter -- are now free agents.

11/10/2014 | V-Mart, Scherzer turn down qualifying offers

Monday's decisions from Victor Martinez and Max Scherzer to reject their qualifying offers doesn't close the door on either one returning to the Tigers in 2015. It just means they're not coming back for the one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer.
