    Fansided: Detroit Tigers lose 16th straight game to Cleveland this season

    The Detroit Tigers just haven't been able to get it done against Cleveland this year. Their lost tonight extends their losing streak to the Indians to 16. At least in this game, the Tigers can say they didn't lose in nine and were able to force extra innings before losing two to one.

    Detroit's pitching was on point tonight. Spencer Turnbull made one of his best starts of the season, going for five innings and only giving up one run with eight strikeouts. This was a more than welcome outing, given his struggles over the year.

    Bless You Boys: Isaac Paredes leads the Tigers contingent into Arizona Fall League action today

    The 2019 minor league season ended less than three weeks ago, yet Arizona Fall League action begins today. The Tigers have seven minor league players earmarked to compete for the Mesa Solar Sox, one of six teams in the MLB-owned developmental league. The young Tigers will also have a familiar face to guide them, as Erie SeaWolves manager Mike Rabelo is the Solar Sox manager this season.

    The opening of play on September 18 marks a pretty radical departure in scheduling for the league. Typically, the league begins in October and runs into mid-November.

    Fansided: Detroit Tigers: 7 players competing in Arizona Fall League

    It's September and that means the Arizona Fall League is starting up again. This league is a six-team developmental league and presents great opportunities for prospects to play against other prospects to gain valuable experience for their future in baseball. The Detroit Tigers have seven players headed to the league, and here's some information on them.

    Paredes is the biggest name on the list of those heading to the Arizona Fall League for Detroit. He slashed .282/.368/.416 with 13 home runs this year in Erie. The 20-year-old middle infielder has looked like a promising talent in the organization thus far, and the fall league will further help his development.

    Bless You Boys: Which current Tigers will play a role for the team in 2020?

    As the 2019 season (mercifully) comes to a close, the Tigers can finally start turning the page and looking ahead to next year. While 2020 will bring much of the same, there is belief that the team may be on the upswing, as many of the organization's top prospects are reaching the cusp of the major leagues.

    However, there are a bunch of serviceable players already in Detroit who project to feature again next season. The team as a whole might not have been very sightly this season, but there were definitely some individual players who shed a ray of hope for the future.

    Bless You Boys: Detroit Tigers News: Prospects, tattoos, and more!

    As the season continues to wind down, there are still plenty of stories surrounding the Detroit Tigers, starting out west in Arizona and reaching all the way across the pond to Great Britain. Here are the narratives that have occupied the headlines the past few days.

    Emily Waldon of The Athletic lays out the expectations for the members of the Detroit Tigers organization playing in the Arizona Fall League this year. Nearly 180 players from major league farm systems from High-A and up -- selected by way of a little-known draft in August -- will get their opportunity to showcase their skills and hone their games.

    The Detroit News: Reininger roughed up in first big-league start, Tigers fall to Indians

    (Photo: Tony Dejak, AP)

    Cleveland -- Before the game, manager Ron Gardenhire was asked what his expectations were for Zac Reininger, who was making his first major league start subbing for Matthew Boyd.

    "We'd be happy to get three innings," he said. "Anything less than that would probably not be that fun. Anything more would be really good."

    'Not that fun' won out.

    Reininger, who was pulled after the first two hitters in the third inning reached base, ended up being charged for four runs and the Cleveland Indians continued their dominance over the Tigers, winning the first game of this three-game set, 7-2.

    For the 16th time this season, the Detroit Tigers lost to the Cleveland Indians. Coming off a series win against the Orioles, the Tigers travelled to Cleveland for a Tuesday night showdown against the Indians and lost by a final of 7-2.

    It was a bullpen game for the Tigers, but none of that mattered as the Indians got on the board in the first inning and were able to continue their dominance over to Detroit for the rest of the evening. The Indians have now won 15 in a row against the Tigers.

    Fansided: Detroit Tigers: Indians win 15 in a row against Detroit

    The Detroit Tigers continued their poor play against the Cleveland Indians this season in tonight's game. Cleveland got out to a big early lead in the first three innings and never let go, winning their 15th game in a row against Detroit with a final score of seven to two.

    Zac Reininger got a chance to start the game for Detroit tonight, and it won't be surprising if he doesn't get another one. He only lasted for two innings, giving up four earned runs, including a home run. Reininger has not looked good this year, and his numbers only got worse after this one, he is now 0-3 with a 9.

    The Detroit News: Grayson Greiner's offensive resurgence a ray of light in another dismal Tigers loss

    (Photo: Tony Dejak, AP)

    Cleveland -- Grayson Greiner isn't trying to be a silver lining. That's never the goal.

    "I'd much rather just win baseball games, that's the most important thing" he said after the Tigers endured a mostly uninspired, 7-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians Tuesday night. "Losing is tough. It's always the worst feeling in our profession."

    This was loss No. 105 for the rebuilding Tigers. It was the 15th straight loss to the Indians. Better then to search for silver linings than dwell on another mundane loss. And the offensive resurgence of Greiner is at the top of a short list from this one.

    Detroit Free Press: Detroit Tigers still chasing No. 1 draft pick after Tyler Alexander's gem

    There was a smack on his butt.

    There was Listerine, yogurt, relish, and, yes, shaving cream. Lots of it. So much that locker neighbor Edwin Jackson -- 12 years his senior -- wore it all over the back of his hooded sweatshirt.

    Finally, Tyler Alexander had a major league win.

    Finally? Alexander, the Detroit Tigers' rookie left-hander, had only pitched in 10 games before Monday's 5-2 win against the Orioles at Comerica Park.

    "About time, right?" he said. "I wish it came a little bit sooner, but I'm not complaining.

    The Detroit News: Tigers demote Edwin Jackson to bullpen; give Tyler Alexander extended stay in rotation

    (Photo: Robin Buckson, Detroit News)

    Cleveland -- Edwin Jackson looked up from his phone and saw a couple reporters moving in his direction. He already knew what was coming.

    "Question of the day, huh," he said, laughing.

    Jackson earlier Tuesday was informed by pitching coach Rick Anderson that he was moving to the bullpen. The Tigers are going to keep rookie Tyler Alexander in the rotation for the rest of the season.

    So, yes, Jackson's reaction to the news was going to be topical.

    And his response should've been taped and used to show younger players what professionalism looks and sounds like.
