Zimmermann starting to look like his healthy self again

Minneapolis — There was something familiar about the way Jordan Zimmermann pitched Monday night in Kansas City — fearlessly pounding the strike zone, pinpointing his fastball in the northern quadrants of the zone, the slider and curveball biting down at the southern edges. He looked like a right-hander

Live Tigers blog: Twins’ Santana a tough foe

Niyo: Lions make amends with Sanders, is Megatron next?

One reunion is official now. The other’s still on hold. But there’s no sense staying mad forever. And if Barry Sanders’ return to the Lions’ den shows anything, it’s that time — and money — really can help heal most wounds.  So while Calvin Johnson’s relationship with the Lions

Wojo: Tigers should line up suitors for Verlander

Detroit — Justin Verlander still is capable of putting on a show, with a fastball that touches 99 and a curveball that snaps sharply, when it’s right. It’s not an every-start show, but when he throws like he did the other night in Kansas City, it remains compelling, and scouts will be in the

Avila keeping a level head as trade rumors swirl

Kansas City, Mo. — Alex Avila has experienced just about every situation or scenario the game of baseball can throw at a player. But this is new. For the first time in his career, he is the subject of trade rumors during a season. “I’m not going to lie, it’s not like it hasn’t been on my

Bottom 5th: Royals 8, Tigers 3 Mike Moustakas dropped a one-out bloop single into center field for Kansas City’s first hit off of Chad Bell. Alcides Escobar grounded into a fielder’s choice, moving Moustakas up to second, but Bell finished off the inning by getting Brandon Moss to fly out to

McCosky: If traded, Verlander’s work will be missed

Kansas City, Mo. — We’re going to miss this. Truly miss it. If the Brewers or the Astros or the Cubs find a way to put together a strong enough prospect and financial package to entice the Tigers to trade Justin Verlander — and are deemed legitimate enough contenders to convince him to waive his

Martinez had been traded to the Diamondbacks — sadness at losing a beloved and productive teammate, frustration at the organization for weakening the team, concern over their own immediate future

Tigers weigh closer options if Justin Wilson is dealt

Kansas City, Mo. — His reluctance to get into the issue was understandable. There would be nothing gained by commenting on a hypothetical situation, regardless of its likelihood of coming to pass. Manager Brad Ausmus was asked before Tuesday’s game if he’d given any thought to who might close
