    Fansided: Detroit Tigers: Double-A Erie Seawolves boast elite rotation

    Someone stop me if I'm wrong, but the Erie Seawolves may just have one of the best rotations in Detroit Tigers, and maybe all of minor league history. Headlined by Casey Mize, who was just activated from the IL, and fellow top prospect Matt Manning, this rotation could take the Seawolves and the Tigers to new heights.

    The plethora of young, talented arms in this Erie rotation in just impeccable. Being a native of Erie, I have never seen a collection of talent in a pitching rotation than what we have now. I've seen the likes of Justin Verlander, Michael Fulmer, and former top prospect Jacob Turner among other talented Detroit Tigers minor league arms, but no group of pitchers has stood out more than the current rotation.

    The Detroit News: Blue Jays knock around Zimmermann, soar past Tigers in blowout

    MLB

    Detroit -- Jordan Zimmermann has had a very long season.

    Somehow, he's had an even longer month of July.

    Detroit's most expensive pitcher was shelled for six runs over 3.2 innings on Friday night. And like the 11 starts that preceded it, Zimmermann returned to the clubhouse without a win to his credit, as the Tigers were blown out by the Toronto Blue Jays, 12-1, at Comerica Park.

    The $25 million man has now given up 20 earned runs over 11 innings in three starts this month, sending his season's ERA screaming to a career-high 7.

    Bless You Boys: Tarik Skubal strikes out 13 in another spectacular outing for Erie

    Matt Hall and the Hens' bullpen put together a fantastic performance, but they were matched by veteran Ervin Santana as the offense struggled. Hall went four innings, allowing just one hit while punching out six hitters. Ethan DeCaster and Eduardo Jimenez each allowed a run, while John Schreiber spun a pair of perfect innings to close things out. The offense meanwhile put plenty of men on base but ran into four outs trying to steal bases. Willi Castro and Victor Reyes each had two hits, while Ronny Rodriguez hit a solo home run in the seventh for the Hens' only run.

    Bless You Boys: Blue Jays 12, Tigers 1: Marcus Stroman was impressive, but the Tigers were not

    MLB

    Jordan Zimmermann and Marcus Stroman were the opening day starting pitchers on March 28 when the Tigers began their season in Toronto. The two engaged in a pitchers' duel with Zimmerman throwing six perfect innings, allowing just one hit and no walks in seven frames. Stroman matched him with seven shutout innings, allowing just two hits, and the Tigers won by a 2-0 score in 10 innings. The two would do battle again, this time in Comerica park with both teams headed due south for the rest of the summer.

    Scouts from several major league clubs were in attendance for the rematch, but they weren't there to see Jordan Zimmermann (unfortunately) or even Nick Castellanos.

    Fansided: Detroit Tigers pitching falters at home against Toronto

    The Detroit Tigers returned home for a series against Toronto tonight for their much anticipated Pink out the Park event. The game didn't go in their favor however, and they wound up losing 12-1. The pitching staff couldn't find any answers for Toronto's hitters, giving up a total of 15 total hits.

    Jordan Zimmermann started the game off on the wrong foot by allowing a run to score on a wild pitch, and it would only get worse from there. In the fourth inning he was already over 80 pitches and gave up four additional runs on a series of walks and singles.

    The Detroit News: 'At a loss for words': Blue Jays embarrass Zimmermann, Tigers

    MLB

    Detroit -- Jordan Zimmermann has had a very long season.

    Somehow, he's had an even longer month of July.

    "I'm at a loss for words right now," Zimmermann said following Friday night's 12-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays at Comerica Park.

    "I'm not really doing much of anything."

    Detroit's most expensive pitcher was shelled for six runs over 3.2 innings. And like the 11 starts that preceded it, Zimmermann returned to the clubhouse without a win to his credit, as the Tigers were blown out by the Blue Jays in embarrassing fashion.

    Bless You Boys: Detroit Tigers News: Looming trade deadline and a midseason prospect review

    It is a tough time of year for Tigers fans -- the summer heat has become unbearable, as has the product the club has put on the field these past few months. To add insult to injury, the Motor City Kitties have dropped 11 in a row to their intradivision rivals from the city of burning rivers and are currently 1 1/2 games out of "first place" for the top pick in the 2020 amateur draft, just behind the Baltimore Orioles.

    Not to sound like a broken record, but there is not much else to get excited about these days in Detroit baseball-wise other than the trade deadline and the rising prospects.

    Bless You Boys: Spenser Watkins loses a no-hitter in the ninth inning

    The Hens jumped out to an early lead and then poured on the offense late after the bullpen melted down to earn the win in this one. Ronny Rodriguez got things going in the first, turning on an Aaron Slegers' offering and planting it over the wall in left for a three-run homer. Drew VerHagen took it from there, allowing just one run in six innings of work. VerHagen came out in the seventh but after a Jacob Robson error in left field and two one-out single, he was lifted for John Schreiber who allowed a sacrifice fly that tied the game.

    Fansided: Detroit Tigers fall victim to four-game sweep in Cleveland

    The Detroit Tigers dropped their eleventh straight game against Cleveland this year Thursday night, despite taking a three to two lead in the third inning against Trevor Bauer. Bauer had a strong performance after that, however, going for 120 total pitches and preventing the Tigers from scoring more runs. Detroit would go on to lose 6-3.

    Despite losing the game, the Detroit Tigers had a better offensive performance than the last few nights. They had eight hits in the game and scored three runs early on, two of which came off of a homer by Harold Castro.

    Cleveland -- Tigers closer Shane Greene likes to say, "Sometimes balls are caught on the warning track and sometimes they go over the fence."

    What Matthew Boyd wouldn't give to see a few balls caught on the warning track.

    The home run ball beat him again Thursday night. He gave up a two-run blast to Jordan Luplow in the first inning and a two-run, tie-breaking shot to Jose Ramirez in the sixth -- both with two outs -- and the Indians completed the four-game sweep of the Tigers, 6-3.

    Bless You Boys: Tigers vs. Cleveland Preview: Alright let's end this losing streak already

    MLB

    For a while earlier this decade, the Detroit Tigers owned Cleveland. They went 12-6 against their AL Central rivals in 2011, 15-4 in 2013, and 11-8 in 2014, the last of their four consecutive division titles. They even added in an 11-7 mark in 2015, a last-place season, for good measure. In all, the Tigers went 57-35 (a .620 win percentage) over the Naps from 2011 to 2015. Hilarity ensued.

    Since then, the tables have turned. Cleveland was 30-16 against Detroit from 2016 to 2018, with at least 13 seasons over their division rivals in each season.
