4/30 @7:10 Tampa Rays vs Detroit Tigers

Recommended Posts


I think Martin got scratched due to a sore hamstring.  Jones will probably play center.

It seems like he'll never be healthy or good.  Oh well.  

It does. But... he just turned 25 a week ago. Don’t have any idea what this groin surgery involves or the recovery time expectation. He’s still young and could still end up having a good career. There is no question his career is two steps back for each one forward. I would still hope he could succeed in a Tiger uniform.

I am not giving up on him.  I just don't have much confidence in him anymore.  He was once somebody I was expecting to be part of their rotation for several years.  Now, he is just someone I just hope will be good some day.

Daniel Norris headed for groin surgery. He will be transferred to the 60 day dl.

I wonder it he has been avoiding coming clean about that - would certainly explain where the missing FB mph are. And he recovers as well as  Verlander did....

 

..... not that I am going to hold my breath.

whoa, MLB finally got audio overlay going. of course, it's not well-synched, but I guess it's something at least.

Blaine Hardy deserves to be called up.     He's been incredible at AAA.     I know they'd have to drop someone from the roster.  I am sure out of the 40 people on it, they can afford to drop one.

When I hear the words “groin injury“ I wince and take it personally. FYI, they called up Chad Bell too.

Zimmermann is going to start scuffing the ball leading to dominance until he gets caught. You heard it here first 

Ole Sandy Zimmermann making me look like a genius so far

I like it, he's getting older, he has to be gritty to hang in the league

Way to go Zim.  Best I've seen him pitch in about year?

I would be more encouraged if it was someone other than Tampa Bay but I’ll take what I can get.

Are there a lot of low-scoring contests throughout baseball this year,  or are the Tigers just lost in this cycle of despair by themselves?

The Rays are just off an 8 game win streak so he shut out a hot team anyway.  Like Leland always said:  "It's not who you play but when you play em" and the Rays are hot.  Good job for Zimm.  Let us hope that this is something for Jordan to build on.
