Tuesday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Twins

  
Jose Iglesias returns to the Tigers lineup — tentatively, pending how he runs on the field during batting practice — after missing the previous four games with tightness in his groin. In addition, J.D. Martinez moves back into the fifth spot behind Victor Martinez, swapping spots with Yoenis Cespedes again.

“I’ve seen better at-bats from him,” Brad Ausmus said of the switch.

The Twins welcome back Trevor Plouffe, who missed the weekend to attend to a family matter. They’ve also called up Aaron Hicks, who has spent parts of the last two seasons in Minnesota but has yet to stick. A .336 (36-for-107) start and .975 OPS at Triple-A Rochester earned him another shot.

Hoping Simon gets back on a good track like Greens just did and Tiger bats get more life in them. Twins are only one game behind Tigers. 3rd place is looming?

The way our guys are hitting we could be in 3rd place pretty quickly

Thanks for all the comments. I have not been on in a while as I sold my house in Caledonia and moved to Long Lake in Cloverdale. Evan, the fishing is fantastic! No cable tv but I know have the internet and of course Dan and Jim. I am giving Ausmus a chance but not too impressed so far. Went to bed when the rain started and sounds like we should have won that game. Ya just gotta believe. Watched some at my Mom’s on Sunday night. Those announcers….. Anyway I hope JV comes back strong. Go Tigers! –Dave

I thought you said you were in Grand Rapids. You live in the boonies, Dave.

Cold windy and a night game????? Hasn’t been a good recipe for our boys. Ugh

I walked out to the kitchen and missed Miguel’s at bat completely. 2 outs and Kinsler on 3rd. Can he knock him home?

Groundout to 2nd on 1st pitch

Victor battled 11 pitches but Gose and Cabrera one pitch each? Ugh.

Well, some pitchers usually start off with their fastball and if they’re not careful, it can get hit out of the park. Gose did it a couple weeks ago.

Well he got out of it but it required a whole lot of pitches….good job Alfredo

Close call. Suzuki has always given the Tigers trouble.

Nice job with the splitter by Simon. And an equally nice job by McCann smothering those pitches in the dirt.

Major power outage with the Detroit Tigers …only 3 homers in the month.

Alfredo may have to throw a shut out his team can’t score any runs

JD !!!

Sweet defensive play followed by an HR.

He is back

Is Miguel hurting or just majorly slumping?

Is he drinking?

In LF is where Cespedes really shines. That right arm of his is pure gold.

The weather is so miserable. If the sun was out and there was no breeze, it wouldn’t be so bad. 2 days ago I almost turned my air on and today my furnace is going. Tigers just swinging away.

Can 1 run win this game?

If we had a setup-closer combo like KC or the Yanks, definitely.

NOPE

JOBA! JOBA? YIKES>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Ausmus is late with the hook. He just put Simon in position to lose.

What happened to Gose’s plus arm? Have we seem it yet this year?

he can throw 97 mph but now we know why he wasn’t a pitcher.

Miguel:
Babip :200 for May. Hitting the ball hard to the wrong place

Hard hit rate: 22.9 7th in MLB

I wouldn’t let Joba back out there for another inning. He’s done his job.

Whew!

Kinsler has to do it cause Miggy can’t.

He’s safe.

Bunt, no run scored.

So sad. A re-play of Sunday night’s game. Great pitching by Greene and Simon.
Tiger bats made of Swiss cheese.

These Tiger’s hitters are just beyond disappointing.

Soria is amazing. Can we clone him?

Anybody in the mood for a walk-off?

Only if the Tigers walk it off.

Romine a LHB with a BA .90 higher than Rajai.

While we can’t score runs off of mediocre pitchers….KC scoring on one of the better pitchers in AL so far this year.

Perez at 3rd base.

and now Nesbitt? This is Tuesday night, BA, not Sunday night.

I can’t take it. Shutting if off. I’m already so mad.

Nesbitt with a little help from McCann

Ian is the man!

Repeat. Kinsler has to do it cause Cabrera can’t. OH! Wait! He did do it! Tigers win!

Well a win is a win…..I’d sure like to see the bats start to warm up a bit. Truthfully it starts with the “Big Fella” as Rod would say. He’s cold as ice.

Don’t give up on Miggy.

Man, everyone is in a slump at the same time except Gose.
Good pitching tonight by all four guys. Good to see Joba throwing his damned fastball finally.
McCann had a good game. Opposition has scored 3 runs in the last two games with him behind the plate.
It’s rare to have everyone slumping at once. This will have to end soon.

The pen ain’t looking too shabby eh? Nesbit as set up? Joba to bridge 7th. Keep throwing the fastball Joba. Romine should have hit. I didn’t get that one.

Nesbitt looks like he is being prepped as the set up. Things could get interesting if Rondon proves ready and capable of contributing.

Nesbitt.

1. Victor’s 2 AB’s where he saw 21 pitches; no hits, but he will come around barring further injury.
2. Julio’s stroke slowly reemerging.
3. Good team defense contributed to the win.
Kudos to Big Pasta for another nice outing. Nice to see Green and him back to back, with both righting the ship. Nice job by Nesbitt. Ian had a blue plate special today.
No negative comments tonight. All batting averages will eventually revert to their norm.

Hi everyone, John from NJ here….Is there any possibility(just thinking) in lieu of
VMartinez as DH…..trying Raji Davis on occassion…shake that lineup somehow..
that way we can get more speed in the lineup and possibly stay aut of the DP.
Watched the Texas/KC game…good game w/ alot of action…KC does not make many/any mistakes…that team just keeps battleing. I don’t think the Tigers have the
the playing attitude or talent that KC has or management.
Till next…
