|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/26/14) Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello was knocked around Friday against the Twins.
Porcello allowed six runs, four earned, on six hits over 3 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked three during the outing. Minnesota was able to get to Porcello early. After giving up a double to open the frame, Porcello gave up a run on a single to the next hitter. After getting two outs, Porcello gave up a two-run shot to Oswaldo Arcia. Brian Dozier would add a solo home run in the third. Dozier struck again in the fourth inning. With two men on, Dozier reached on an error, allowing two runs to come home. Both runs were unearned.
With the loss, Porcello dropped to 15-13.

Rick Porcello allows two runs in no-decision vs. Twins
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and two walks in eight innings while striking out five in his team's 4-3 loss to the Twins.
Porcello remains winless in four straight outings, though he's delivered quality starts three times during that stretch. The damage Tuesday came on an RBI single in the fourth inning and a solo home run in the sixth, and the starter needed just 103 pitches to get through eight frames. Porcello owns a 3.19 ERA and 122:36 K:BB ratio in 197 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the White Sox Monday.
Rick Porcello loses despite strong start
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/10/14) Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello posted a strong start Wednesday against the Royals.
Porcello allowed two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out seven and did not issue any walks during the outing. Porcello got himself in trouble in the fourth. After getting an out to open the frame, Porcello allowed three straight singles, including a run-scoring hit. After a mound visit, Porcello picked up the second out of the frame. Another single brought in the other run. Porcello was then able to work his way out of the inning, but the damage had already been done.
With the loss, Porcello dropped to 15-11. He’ll take on the Twins in his next start.
|Ever since his promising 2009 season, Rick Porcello had failed to deliver on the potential he offered as 20-year-old rookie. That changed somewhat last season, as he went from being a contact pitcher who relied on ground balls to an average strikeout pitcher. The relative lack of contact helped Porcello to lower his WHIP from 1.53 in 2012 to 1.28 last year, but his progress was not fully reflected in a 4.32 ERA. That's because Porcello continued to allow a high batting average on grounders (.256, as opposed to the major league average of .240) and a low percentage of stranded runners (68 percent). Pehaps with the Tigers moving Miguel Cabrera from third base to first base and Jose Iglesias getting a full year at shortstop, Porcello can generate more outs and allow fewer runs. At worst, he can be useful as a streaming option in standard mixed leagues, but it may be premature to entrust Porcello with even a late-round pick in those formats.
