      Tigers RP Alex Wilson blows save against Royals

      Tigers relief pitcher Alex Wilson allowed one run on two hits while retiring just one batter to take a blown save against the Royals on Friday night. Wilson was asked to try and finish off the Royals with two outs in the ninth because starter Justin Verlander was at 114 pitches, and has never had much success against the due hitter Salvador Perez (21-for-44 against Verlander in his career). Two pitches later, Perez had launched his 20th home run, and the game was tied.

      Tigers RP Bruce Rondon gains edge in battle for closer role

      Brad Ausmus appears to be leaning toward Bruce Rondon as the closer for the Tigers moving forward. Rondon has earned two saves since Saturday, but that is partially due to the absence of Alex Wilson, who is dealing with shoulder fatigue. The former had been considered the closer of the future, but had failed to take hold of the job. Then Tommy John surgery sidelined him throughout 2014. "The way Rondon has been pitching, I may end up giving him some more opportunities," Ausmus told the Detroit Free Press. "Doesn't mean all of them. Rondon is obviously going to need days (off) as well, and Wilson would get opportunities then." Wilson owns a 1.72 ERA in 42 games this season with 33 strikeouts in 57 2/3 innings.

      Tigers RP Alex Wilson nails down second save Wednesday

      It's so far, so good for Alex Wilson as the closer for the Tigers. He's converted both save opportunities since apparently landing the job. The latest success was Wednesday night, when he arrived on the scene with two outs in the ninth and induced Alex Rios to fly out after allowing a single. Wilson has yet to be officially named the closer as Brad Ausmus has indicated that Blaine Hardy, who started the ninth, could be used in save situations against left-handed batters.

      Tigers RP Alex Wilson gets five outs to notch first career save

      Tigers reliever Alex Wilson came and got five outs to record his first career save in the 9-8 win over the Orioles. Wilson entered the game in the eighth inning with runners on first and second and one out. He immediately threw a wild pitch, moving the runners up a base. He allowed one of the runs to score on an RBI groundout, but was able to escape the inning without any further damage. He came back out and worked a scoreless ninth inning to preserve the victory. Wilson was tasked with getting the save on the day that closer Joakim Soria was dealt to the Pirates. It is not known if Wilson will be inheriting the closing duties, or if manager Brad Ausmus will be using more of a committee approach.
