Tigers' Carlos Torres: Clears waivers
Torres cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Monday.
A 36-year-old with just 15.2 innings and an ERA of nearly 7 over the last two seasons was understandably not a particularly enticing option on the waiver wire. Torres will remain in an organizational depth role for the Tigers.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Niko Goodrum: Drives in two in loss
Goodrum went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's 8-3 loss to Cleveland.
Goodrum posted his second straight multi-hit game, and he's now riding a modest four-game hitting streak overall. For the season, the 27-year-old is slashing .241/.320/.402 with six home runs, 23 RBI and 38 runs scored in 67 games.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Connects for ninth home run
Jones went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 8-3 loss to Cleveland.
Jones started the game with a leadoff home run, his ninth of the season and fourth this month in 19 contests. June has been kind to the 27-year-old outfielder, as he's batting .318 with 11 runs scored, and he's cemented his spot atop Detroit's order.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Daniel Norris: Tagged for six runs Sunday
Norris (2-6) allowed six runs across seven innings Sunday to take the loss against Cleveland. He gave up eight hits and struck out eight as well.
Norris pitched pretty well outside of the second inning. However, that frame was particularly rough, as the lefty allowed five runs on six hits, including four in a row at one point. The eight strikeouts were a season high at least, but Norris remains an inconsistent fantasy option best saved for the right matchups. He'll take a 4.69 ERA into his next scheduled start Friday against Washington.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Franklin Perez: Lands back on injured list
Perez returned to the injured list with High-A Lakeland with another shoulder injury Sunday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
Perez had only just returned from the injured list Tuesday before returning there for the third time this season. The 21-year-old has made just nine starts since joining the Tigers in August of 2017.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Spencer Turnbull: Takes seventh loss
Turnbull allowed two runs on six hits with two walks and four strikeouts across five innings while taking a loss against the Indians on Saturday.
The 26-year-old pitched much better than he did in his last outing, but it still resulted in a loss. Bad luck has been common for him, as Turnbull has allowed more than three earned runs just once in his last five starts but is 1-3 during that stretch. Overall, he is 3-7 with a 3.29 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 81 strikeouts in 87.2 innings this season. He will look to earn his fourth victory at home against the Nationals on Friday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Carlos Torres: Designated for assignment

Torres spent two weeks with the Tigers, allowing five runs in six innings of work while recording a strong 8:1 K:BB. Jose Cisnero was called up in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jose Cisnero: Called up by Tigers
Cisnero was called up from Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Cisnero has 48.1 big-league innings under his belt, though none have come since 2014. He owns a 2.95 ERA in 36.2 innings for Toledo this season. Carlos Torres was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Harold Castro: Sitting Saturday
Castro is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Castro heads to the bench following seven straight starts, during which he produced five hits across 22 at-bats. Though Ronny Rodriguez will get the nod at second base Saturday, Castro appears to have emerged as the Tigers' primary option at the position for now. Castro could be at risk of moving into a utility role or may even be sent back to Triple-A Toledo once Jordy Mercer (quadriceps) is reinstated from the 10-day injured list, however.... See More ...

Tigers' Nicholas Castellanos: Registers 25th RBI
Castellanos went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored Friday night against the Indians.
Castellanos tied the ballgame in the third inning with a double to left field, but the Indians would ultimately pull away for a 7-6 victory. The 27-year-old outfielder has collected three extra-base hits over his last three contests, putting him at 24 doubles through 69 games this year.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' JaCoby Jones: Scores twice in loss
Jones went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and two runs scored in Friday's 7-6 loss to Cleveland.
Jones has been having a nice month of June with 17 hits in 58 at-bats (.293 average) to go along with three home runs and 10 runs scored. His hot stretch has pushed him up to the leadoff spot in Detroit's lineup recently, and with the Tigers thin on offensive weapons, Jones figures to stick there if he can remain decently productive....

Tigers' Brandon Dixon: Pops ninth home run
Dixon went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 7-6 loss to Cleveland.
Dixon hit his ninth home run of the season off Trevor Bauer in the second inning. The 27-year-old has been a nice find for Detroit, as he's posting a solid .812 OPS through 144 at-bats and has settled into an everyday role.... See More ... See Less
