Aug. 11 game at Yankees set for 1:05 start

If you were planning on spending a summer weekend in New York for the Tigers-Yankees series in August, you can set your plans on Sunday. The series finale at Yankee Stadium is now set as a 1:05 p.m. ET game. It had been listed as TBA for a game time, presumably as an option for a Sunday night game.

This is good news for the Tigers, whose trip to Yankee Stadium is the middle stop on a three-city, 10-game road trip with no off-days. They’ll fly to Chicago from there for a three-game series against the White Sox, so the day game means no late-night flight (weather permitting).

The Tigers currently have no Sunday night games scheduled the rest of the way. We’ll see if that lasts.


GK, I am aswering your question from the last post. You should still be able to get decent seats in Toronto but not as good as the past. They sold more season tickets packages this offseason due to the hype. But the walk up crowd is not doing that well. Of course, that may change as school is out, the weather is nicer and the Jays continue to play well. If you do come for either the 2nd or the 4th, let me know. I will buy you a beer.
El Tigre, I was not aware Janssen had an option. You are probably right, you generally always are.😉

Tks. Days ago , his name was mentioned, I checked his numbers at baseball-.reference and there was the mention of the team option

Valverde DFA

“Matt Tuiasosopo has been placed on the DL with a left strained intercostal retro to 6/20”

same injury Dirks had in Spring Training

“Prior to today’s game the #Tigers recalled the contracts of Garcia and Alburquerque from AAA Toledo.”

@tigers all above

I really don’t understand why Rondon is not being called up.

Jason at twitter.”Alburquerque could be biggest key to putting #Tigers bullpen in order, whether they eventually trade or not. No righty depth without him.”

Maybe they think Al ABQ can go multiple innings and Rondon cannot?

“Lineup: Infante 4, Hunter 9, Cabrera 5, Fielder 3, Martinez DH, Peralta 6, Garcia 8, Dirks 7, Peña 2, Fister is starting.” @tigers

Good move to give AJax an off day. I still worry about hamstrings, we cannot lose him long term.

Jason at twitter:”Tuiasosopo DL definitely a blow to #Tigers. Intercostal strain happened while hitting in cage. Now out 15 days.”

Jackson:”Leg soreness, same area as hamstring pull he had. Getting treatment today.” Beck too

what now about jose? Can he work on his stuff in AAA? Maybe scrap the splitter and resurrect the slider! VERY not cool about jackson. rondon must still need seasoning. ALBQ is going to walk people – but at least he’ll strike people out. Reed probably next to go downstairs. Villarreal might never make it back up stairs.

Check ALBQs stats. He has 3.14 27 Ks 13 BBs @ BOTH Toledo and Detroit. He has given up two homers @ Toledo. Does that appear to be someone trying to get better???

i am FULLY aware and didn’t say he had a good trip to AAA

Tom Gage:
“yes, the #Tigers want to keep Valverde in the organization if he clears waivers – they seem to think his problems can be fixed.”

Throwing his splitter less is easy to fix. Believe I’ve posted it two or three times myself. He may go somewhere else and dominate us like Rodney does.

Look at Jason’s tweet re Jackson. Sore leg? Wonder if he will play?

He’s not playing. Ugh!
