News
Since his recall from the minors in late April, Tigers reliever Alex Wilson has quietly put together a nice string of outings. He is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in 10 appearances.

"I can't really give you his role because I use him all over the place," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Thursday, per MLive.com. "He can pitch -- he was going to go back out for the next inning [Thursday against the Astros] if we don't score, so he would have been out for a third -- long like that, he can get a couple of righties out if we need it in the seventh or eighth. He doesn't seem to be bothered by the tight game, so he's got a lot of versatility."

Wilson's two-inning outing Thursday was the sixth time this season he has pitched longer than an inning and the fourth time he's gone at least two frames.

"Ya know, I'm just doing what I can," Wilson said. "I'm a grinder -- that's what I've always done. I feel like there is a little bit of a role, I am kind of the long guy, but the kind of guy you can throw in and try and get a couple of ground ball or couple quick outs if need be. I'm OK with being the swingman of the bullpen, I could you could call it. But I'm happy with it."

News
Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said definitively on Friday Joba Chamberlain will be the team's eighth-inning reliever moving forward, according to MLB.com.

Chamberlain has given up just one run in his last six appearances for Detroit after having a blow up inning on May 6. 

"Obviously, being in the bullpen, you get the opportunity to be an everyday player," Chamberlain said. "So as things go, you're able to get on the bump and go after it. When you give up a few runs, you're able to get back out there the next day."

Chamberlain has a 1.38 ERA with nine strikeouts in 13 innings this season.

"Everything's going well," Chamberlain said. "We've just got to continue to work hard and, as long as these starters give us a chance, keep going deep in games. It's fun to watch those guys pitch. We've just gotta get the ball to the next guy."

Tigers catcher James McCann played hero on Thursday, as he delivered a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th inning, as Detroit downed the Astros 6-5. The home run was his second of the season and his career.

"To be able to put a 'W' on the board, and be able to jog, is a lot nicer than having to sprint," McCann said, per MLB.com.

McCann has been getting the bulk of the playing time behind the plate with regular catcher Alex Avila on the disabled list.

McCann has been hitting well lately, as he's 9 for 25 over his last eight games.

News
Tigers closer Joakim Soria blew his first save of the year on Thursday, but the Tigers rallied back to beat the Astros 6-5 in 11 innings. Soria allowed a game-tying pinch-hit home run to Preston Tucker in the top of the ninth.

"It was a ball outside of the plate," Soria said, per MLB.com. "The guy hit an opposite-way homer. You just tip your cap. Good for him. He hit the ball well. That's what you want. You don't want him to pull the ball in that situation."

This is the first time Soria has been scored against since April 26. He is now 13-for-14 in save opportunities this season.

Biceps - 15-day DL. On Triple-A rehab assignment (Updated - 5/21/15)
News
Tigers pitcher Bruce Rondon threw 22 pitches in his first rehab start with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday night. 

Rondon went 2/3 of an inning and threw 14 strikes. He gave up one earned run on two hits while striking out one batter. The other out Rondon got came on a groundout. Rondon did reach 99 mph with his fastball, according to MLB.com

“He looked like he had good velocity,” Toledo Mud Hens manager Larry Parrish said. “He looked like he was healthy. As far as commandwise, he looked like he hadn’t been out there in a while.”

Rondon is currently on the 15-day disabled list with a biceps injury. 

Rondon's Toledo squad lost to Buffalo 9-5.

Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Astros with an apparent knee injury. The team later confirmed Iglesias suffered a knee contusion and is day to day with the injury.

Iglesias banged knees with Houston first baseman Chris Carter in the third inning, but was able to remain in the game. Then in the fifth, after sliding into second, the trainers came out to check on Iglesias and he could not continue. 

Iglesias was 2 for 2 with a run scored before leaving the game.

News
Tigers pitcher Alfredo Simon allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings of work to earn his fifth win of season during Friday's 6-2 win over the Astros.

"I just feel really comfortable here," Simon said, per MLB.com. "That's a park for pitching. Every time where I go behind the count, I can throw fastballs. It's a big park, and if they hit a fly ball, it's not easy to hit a home run here."

Simon struck out five batters and walked one during the outing. Both of the runs came in the third inning when Jason Castro scored on a throwing error and Luis Valbuena scored on a single.

Simon (5-2) has not surrendered more than three runs in four-consecutive starts. His ERA now stands at 2.67. His next scheduled start is set for Wednesday at Oakland.

Shoulder - 15-day DL. Out until at least early June (Updated - 5/24/15)
News
The Tigers placed pitcher Kyle Lobstein on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, after struggling through a start on Saturday night.

Lobstein is suffering from a sore left shoulder.  

"He had complained of shoulder soreness here and there, nothing major," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "In the back of my mind, I thought something might be wrong. His velocity has been down almost all year."

The Tigers called up infielder Dixon Machado from Triple-A Toledo to replace him on the roster. Buck Farmer will be called up to replace Lobstein in the rotation for Thursday's start.

David Price, #14

News
Tigers starter David Price was solid in a no-decision on Thursday against the Astros. Price went 6 2/3 innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits. He walked one and struck out a season-high 12 batters, as the Tigers won 6-5 in 11 innings.

Pitching with a 5-0 lead, Price was throwing shutout ball until the top of the seventh. He allowed an RBI triple to Evan Gattis, followed by a couple of run-scoring singles before being lifted for a reliever. 

"I kind of made some adjustments throughout the week, and that's the best I've felt on the mound regardless of results," said Price, per MLive.com

"I don't care about the strikeouts. I don't care about the runs there in the seventh inning. That's the best I've felt, that's the best I've thrown the baseball this year."

That makes back-to-back quality outings for Price, who lowered his ERA to 3.32. He's scheduled to toe the rubber next on Tuesday in Oakland. 

"He did an excellent job, really," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "He commanded the fastball to both sides of he plate, used his curveballs, change up, cutter very effectively. I just think it was a case where they strung some hits together and scored a few runs. It was still an excellent outing for him."

He also extended his current hitting streak to nine games on Thursday. He has 14 hits in 35 at-bats during the streak to go along with four home runs and 10 RBI.

News
Tigers left fielder Yoenis Cespedes reached base in all five plate-appearances in Thursday's win over the Astros. He went 3 for 3 with a double, walked twice and scored twice in the victory. That makes back-to-back three-hit games for the first-year Tiger, and four such performances in his last seven games. 

In fact, Cespedes has hit safely in nine of his last 12 games, and all nine games have been multi-hit performances. 

He also stole a bag for the second consecutive game, giving him threesteals on the season, all coming in the past week. 

Cespedes has had a rather interesting start to his tenure in Detroit. He hasn't hit for much power, with just five home runs on the year. But his 15 doubles are tops in the American League and he has an even .300 batting average entering play on Friday, despite his career .266 mark.
