News
Tigers reliever Angel Nesbitt has been used out the bullpen this season primarily in a mop-up role, but manager Brad Ausmus said the rookie could soon be seeing more high-level situations, reports MLB.com.

"It's definitely on the horizon," Ausmus said. "Something we kind of had in our minds since spring training. You'd like to get him a little bit of experience out of the 'pen at the Major League level before you shove him into a one-run game in the eighth, but if I were to guess, I would say at some point he's going to able to pitch in those types of situations."

News
Tigers pitcher Kyle Lobstein will remain in the starting rotation and make his next scheduled start Thursday against the White Sox, manager Brad Ausmus said Saturday.

Ausmus will keep his rotation in tact after getting an off-day Monday, giving everyone an extra day of rest.

"He's pitched well," Ausmus said. "Even [Friday], you thought he was in trouble early and he kept the Royals right where they were. So he certainly has earned a little bit [of breathing room], I think."

Lobstein is 2-2 so far this season with a 3.91 ERA in 25 1/3 innings. 

"I think it was just a matter of keeping them uncomfortable [at the plate], working in and out and changing pitches, trying not to get in a pattern," Lobstein said. "I felt like I was able to stay with the game plan and keep them off-balance. I didn't necessarily have to make any adjustments, but it's more just kind of staying with it, staying focused so you can continue what you were doing."

News
Tigers pitcher David Price committed his second error of the season on Saturday, and he decided to do something about it. 

Price took ground balls from a coach in the outfield on Sunday morning, getting in some extra fielding practice. He did the same thing the day after his previous error, a month ago.

"I'd rather not lead the league in errors," Price said, per MLive. "I'm giving them extra outs. Getting 27 outs is hard enough. I'd rather not have to get 28 or 29."

He's a hard worker," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "He even works hard before his start on the day of his start -- just in his preparation."

He was just 1 for 8 in the previous three games of the series but had drawn four walks to provide a constant presence on base.

Cabrera has hit .366/.459/.624 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 93 at-bats.

It remains to be seen if Tigers leadoff hitter Anthony Gose has ended his mini-slump. But he certainly got off to a good start in that task Saturday night in Kansas City.

Gose had three hits in his previous 19 at-bats heading into the game, but he doubled that hit total in the victory. He doubled, singled twice and scored in the fifth inning to improve his slash line to .322/.355/.475.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that he plans to find days off for some of his regulars who haven't missed a game yet this year. 

Miguel Cabrera has started every game at first base. Ian Kinsler has been a fixture at second, and one day at DH is the only thing that kept Yoenis Cespedes out of left field this season. 

"Absolutely (a day off) can help," Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "Even if you're not struggling, just to not have to think about every pitch every at-bat, you just kind of sit back for a day and watch the game until you're called upon to go into it. It's almost like going to a spa for the day. It's mentally relaxing."

Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez picked up a win Sunday, giving up three earned runs on four hits and one walk in 7 1/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 6-4 victory over the Royals.

Sanchez (2-3) was perfect through five innings and held the Royals scoreless through six but was unable to deliver a strong finish, giving up a pair of runs in the seventh inning and being charged with one of the Royals' two runs in the eighth.

"[Sanchez] hit his spots," Royals second baseman Christian Colon said. "He executed his pitches. But hey, they won two and we won two. They're a good team, we're a good team."

Sanchez owns a 5.11 ERA and 35:9 K:BB ratio in 37 innings. He'll square off with the Royals again Saturday, this time at home.
