Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler gets first day off in 2015
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/26/15) Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler is getting his first day off this season on Tuesday against the A's. Kinsler had been struggling at the plate, hitting just .211 (8 for 38) over his last 10 games. He is also hitless over his last 17 at-bats, so manager Brad Ausmus opted to use Tuesday to give Kinsler a rest.
Hernan Perez is getting the start at second base while batting ninth in the order.
Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera out of lineup Monday
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/25/15) First baseman Miguel Cabrera was not in the Tigers lineup Monday, the first time all season the slugger has not started. Cabrera will be replaced at first base by Hernan Perez.
Manager Brad Ausmus said that Cabrera's ankle has been cranky the last few days, making Monday a good time to give the slugger an off-day following the team's flight to Oakland, the Detroit Free Press reports. He is available as a pinch-hitter against the A's.
"Just give him a day mentally," said Ausmus when asked if he considered tabbing Cabrera as the designated hitter, per MLive.com. "His ankle has been a little cranky the last few days, so it's a good time. Especially after the flight."
In addition, rookie shortstop Dixon Machado will make the first start of his MLB career and hit ninth for the Tigers. Machado was called up from Triple-A on Sunday as Jose Iglesias battles a sore knee.
Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (groin) out of lineup on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/7/15) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is out of the starting lineup on Thursday against the White Sox. Iglesias was bothered by a sore groin that kept him out of Tuesday's game. He returned on Wednesday, going 1 for 4 with a run scored. But the groin acted up on him overnight and he will rest on Thursday.
Manager Brad Ausmus said it could be a couple of days until Iglesias is able to return, according to MLive.com. Hernan Perez got the start at shortstop on Thursday.

Tigers preparing Andrew Romine, Hernan Perez as emergency catchers
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is hoping to use infielders Andrew Romine and Hernan Perez as emergency catchers if Alex Avila were to go down, reports MLB.com.
Romine and Perez have limited experience with catching in their careers.
"If it's an emergency, you're just hoping to have somebody back there who can catch the ball," Ausmus said. "You obviously have your back against the wall. You need to get through the game. And if need be, you can call someone up the next game. You just want someone who can catch the ball and maybe have enough arm to throw a runner out so they don't run wild."
