News
An ankle ailment prevented Brad Ausmus from calling on setup man Joba Chamberlain in the ninth inning of a tie game Saturday against Cleveland, but not Sunday. Chamberlain pitched a scoreless eighth for the Tigers despite yielding two walks.

"(The ankle) flares up from time to time," Ausmus told MLB.com on Sunday.

News
Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks is resuming baseball activities, the Detroit News reports.

Dirks was pulled off his rehab assignment about a week ago due to back inflammation, but after a few days the team's training staff indicated he should be ready to resume his rehab this week. He has missed the entire season while recovering from March back surgery.

Injuries
Quadriceps - Doubtful for July 23 vs. Arizona (Updated - 7/23/14)
News
Upper quad discomfort prevented Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez from making his appointed rounds Wednesday in Arizona.

Martinez felt a twinge after singling in the eighth inning of the Tuesday loss to the Diamondbacks. He should be considered day-to-day at this point. His torrid stretch has been interrupted by a 3-for-20 slide. Martinez has scored just one run in the last seven games and driven in none in the last four.

News
Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on five hits in seven innings while striking out five and walking none in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Diamondbacks.

Porcello, who was in line to take sole possession of the major-league lead in wins before the bullpen blew the lead, surrendered all three runs on Aaron Hill at-bats: one on a solo home run, the second on a sacrifice fly and the third on a groundout. He owns a 3.42 ERA and 72:28 K:BB ratio in 126 1/3 innings. Porcello is scheduled to face the Angels Sunday.

News
Inconsistent Tigers left-hander Drew Smyly had it working Sunday - and it resulted in his team avoiding its first-ever four-game sweep to the Indians at home.

Smyly was hurt only by a solo home run off the bat of Yan Gomes in giving up one run on four hits in seven innings. He had a no-hitter alive until Gomes doubled in the fifth. Smyly walked two and fanned six as he kept the Indians off-balance, raised his record to 6-8 and lowered his ERA to 3.80.

He is slated to pitch again Friday against the host Angels.

Tigers ace Max Scherzer was nearly scratched Saturday with a neck issue, according to MLive.com. He didn't have his typical stuff as he surrendered two runs in 5 2/3 innings with six hits, four walks and just four strikeouts.

Scherzer, who is expected to make his next start Thursday against the host Angels, had performed well in four previous starts, going 3-0 with five runs allowed in 28 innings.

Slumping Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez is grabbing some pine for the Sunday game against visiting Cleveland. Andrew Romine is manning the position instead.

News
Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez is destined to start two of three games in Arizona next week at first base, thereby pushing Miguel Cabrera to third, according to MLive.com.

Those moves would force third baseman Nick Castellanos to the bench.

The slumping Tigers would be hard-pressed to take Martinez out of the lineup. Despite rare back-to-back hitless games in a Saturday doubleheader, he still owns a .322/.384/.583 stat line.

Reliever Joel Hanrahan has experienced a setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery and has been shut down by the Tigers. The move all but eliminates any chance of him returning this season.

Coke (1-2) retired the first batter he faced in the eighth inning on a comebacker to the pitcher, but he walked the next two guys he faced before being removed. Both would eventually come around to score. Coke owns a 4.79 ERA and 23:14 K:BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings.

Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez had a tough start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Sanchez allowed five runs on 11 hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out four and walked one during the appearance. Sanchez had no issues early, cruising through the first four innings. Things got tough late. After Gerardo Parra and Martin Prado led off the fifth inning with back-to-back doubles, plating a run for Arizona. Didi Gregorius followed that up with a two-run home run.
