What You Need to Know: The Tigers' Roaring Comeback

1

Chris Mosch

Detroit goes from a 5-0 hole to a 14-5 romp, Jacob deGrom blows away the Braves, plus more from Tuesday and what to watch on Wdnesday.

The Tuesday Takeaway
The Tigers looked like they’d be in for a long night when the Dodgers jumped all over Justin Verlander in the top of the first inning of Tuesday’s clash between the two first-place clubs.

Raising Aces: A Tale of Two Aces

6

Doug Thorburn

The best of times for Clayton Kershaw coincide with the worst of times for Justin Verlander.

Just 15 months ago, Clayton Kershaw and Justin Verlander were neck-and-neck in any discussion of the top pitchers in the game. The Motor City right-hander owned the American League, and the west coast southpaw ruled over the senior circuit, with each having finished first and second in their respective Cy Young races from 2011–12. They entered the 2013 campaign as the unquestioned aces of competitive clubs, poised to stage another season as kings of the mound, but their careers have taken dramatically different trajectories since then.

What You Need to Know: Soaring Jays

3

Chris Mosch

Toronto wins for the 17th time in 20 games and Masahiro Tanaka gets by without his best stuff, plus more from Thursday and weekend previews.

The Thursday Takeaway
Justin Verlander became the latest victim of Toronto’s explosive offense on Wednesday, as the Blue Jays cranked three more home runs and put the finishing touches on a three-game sweep over the AL Central leaders.

What You Need to Know: Weekend Wrap-Up, 5/27

4

Daniel Rathman

The Sox end a streak, Bckett throws a no-no, and Springer explodes, plus much more from the weekend and what to watch today.

The Memorial Day Weekend Takeaway
If you’re going to compile a 10-game losing streak, you’ll need to find some innovative ways to give away games. Like, say, batting around and scoring five runs in the first inning against David Price, then getting shut out for 14 offensive frames before going down with a series of defensive misadventures:

Five to Watch: American League Starting Pitchers

10

Craig Goldstein

These junior-circuit hurlers had elevated BABIPs last year, but was it all because of bad luck?

As we learned in the NL iteration of this exercise, BABIP affects bad and good pitchers alike, but that doesn’t mean it is pure luck. Team defense, ground-ball rates and the ability to miss bats all factor in to a pitcher’s likelihood of retaining a low BABIP, decreasing a high BABIP or just producing consistent a consistent BABIP year-to-year.

Below are the top five BABIP affected pitchers in the American League from 2013. While one has since been sent to the National League, there’s reason to believe that four of the five have the ability to be better this year than they were last year. Then there’s Joe Saunders.

Fantasy Team Preview: Detroit Tigers

3

Paul Sporer

Miguel Cabrera and a stellar group of starters lead the way, but are their other fantasy assets on Brad Ausmus' squad?

It’s hard to label the 2013 season a disappointment for a team that sat just two wins away from the World Series, but when you enter the season as an odds-on favorite to at least make it, if not win it, then anything short of that has at least a tinge of disappointment. The star power helped carry the Tigers to another AL Central Division title and they were once again a big part of awards season, netting another MVP and Cy Young.

It wasn’t a team without flaws, though. A severe lack of flexibility with their offensive pieces was on display throughout the final month and into the playoffs, as Miguel Cabrera seemed to be playing at around 70 percent health, but had to continue manning third base since they were locked in with a full-time DH who was among their best hitters throughout the summer. Any amount of shifting to get Cabrera in at DH or even first base would’ve led to multiple players being out of position.

Fantasy Bargains and Busts: American League Pitchers

2

Mike Gianella

A look back at the junior circuit arms who rewarded their fantasy owners and those who cost them last season.

On Tuesday, I took a look back at American League hitters from a Rotisserie valuation standpoint. Today, I’ll tackle the pitchers in the Junior Circuit.

Before I get started, here is a brief explanation of the data you will see in the charts below.

Playoff Prospectus: ALDS Game Five Recap: Tigers 3, Athletics 0

16

Paul Sporer

For the second straight year, a vintage Justin Verlander shows up for the decisive game of a Tigers-A's ALDS.

It wasn’t the season that the Tigers mapped out for Justin Verlander. The undisputed king of the pitching world in 2011 was no worse than runner-up in 2012, when Clayton Kershaw made it clear that he deserved to be in any conversation about the best in baseball. But by the end of the 2013 season, Verlander had undisputedly ceded the throne to Kershaw and seemingly even lost the torch as the bona fide no. 1 on his own team in light of the emergence of Max Scherzer.

Playoff Prospectus: ALDS Game Five Preview: Tigers at Athletics

11

Paul Sporer

Game Two produced an epic duel. Can Justin Verlander and Sonny Gray deliver an encore?

I still have Game Two as both the best of this series and the playoffs at large, but Game Four was thrilling throughout with potential Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer wiggling out of a bases-loaded jam en route to earning the second Detroit win of the series. It’s worth noting that he did not start the game, but rather threw two electrifying innings of relief.
