Randy Wolf howled for mercy in Wednesday's loss to the Royals, surrendering eight runs over 3 2/3 innings.

The Royals scored a run in each of the four innings in which the lefty appeared, including five in the fourth. Wolf served up two solo home runs, two of the eight hits he gave up along with three walks and two strikeouts. The veteran had pitched reasonably will in his first two starts back in the majors, but Wednesday's outing balloons his ERA to 6.11 in 17 2/3 innings. Wolf takes on the Rays in a home outing next week.

Miguel Cabrera was ejected from Wednesday's game for arguing balls and strikes.

Cabrera struck out to start the top of the fourth inning and wasn't a fan of home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott's call. He was 1-for-2 with the strikeout before being tossed.

Al Alburquerque underwent an MRI on his right hip Wednesday.

Alburquerque hasn't pitched since August 24 as he manages pain in the hip. More should be known about his condition after the results of the MRI are returned.
Sep 2 - 6:33 PM

Al Alburquerque acknowledged Wednesday that he's been dealing with some soreness in his upper right leg.

The discomfort is near his hip, but Alburquerque hopes to be available out of the Tigers' bullpen on Wednesday night against the Royals. The 29-year-old right-hander holds a 3.52 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 50/28 K/BB ratio in 53 2/3 innings this season for Detroit.

Tigers RHP prospect Spencer Turnbull fanned a career-high 12 batters in Tuesday's win for Low-A West Michigan.

He scattered two walks and one hit over 6 2/3 scoreless innings. The hit was a leadoff double in the fifth inning. Turnbull has won three of his last five starts with a 2.22 ERA in that span. The right-hander is tied for fifth in the Midwest League with 11 victories. He's the Tigers' No. 5 prospect, according to MLB.com.

Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Tigers downed the Royals 6-5 on Tuesday.

Kinsler knocked an RBI single in the fourth inning before delivering a big two-run blast in the seventh. The homer, his 10th of the season, ended up being the difference in the game. It hasn't been a great year for the Tigers as a whole but the 33-year-old is doing his part, batting .306/.357/.452 with 64 RBI, 84 runs scored and eight steals through 129 games.

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with two runs scored against the Royals on Tuesday.

Gose, back in the leadoff spot, had leadoff singles and scored in both the first and seventh innings. The 25-year-old is batting .253/.311/.363 with four homers, 54 runs scored and 19 stolen bases in his first year with the Tigers.

Bruce Rondon pitched a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Royals to earn his third save.

It wouldn't be a Bruce Rondon appearance if he didn't play with at least a little fire, issuing a two-out walk to Ben Zobrist and promptly letting Zobrist steal second with Lorenzo Cain, one of the game's best hitters, at the plate, but Rondon got Cain to ground out to end it. He struck out one in the inning. Save chances have been scarce in recent weeks but it appears the 24-year-old is still the man for the job. Rondon has a shaky 6.56 ERA and 1.54 WHIP through 23 1/3 innings.
Sep 2 - 12:16 AM

Justin Verlander allowed four runs -- two earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Royals on Tuesday.

Errors in two separate innings contributed to two of the Royals' runs against the right-hander, and he also served up a solo homer to Kendrys Morales in the outing. In total, Verlander gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out four. It wasn't quite a one-hit complete game, but they're both wins in the scorebook. Verlander will take a 3-6 record, 3.40 ERA and 1.08 WHIP into Sunday's game against the Indians.

Anibal Sanchez (shoulder) played catch on Tuesday.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus noted that Sanchez wasn't in any pain, but his throwing session was just "OK." There remains no timetable for Sanchez's return to the rotation, but this is the first step. He's been on the shelf since mid-August with a right rotator cuff strain.
Sep 1 - 6:38 PM

Daniel Norris (oblique) played catch Tuesday and Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said the lefty is "actually a little ahead of schedule."

There had been some fear that Norris' strained oblique would end his season, but it's looking like there's a good chance he'll make it back for a couple starts. Norris holds a 5.06 ERA over four starts since arriving with the Tigers via trade.
Sep 1 - 6:33 PM

Tigers recalled C Bryan Holaday from Triple-A Toledo.

Holaday's just coming back from a dislocated left thumb suffered in the middle of August. The 27-year-old backstop will serve as an emergency third catcher for the Tigers. In limited duty with the big club at various points this season, he managed to collect 13 hits in 48 at-bats while driving in 12 runs.
Sep 1 - 12:33 PM

Tigers recalled LHP Kyle Ryan from Triple-A Toledo.

Ryan's been hit hard in previous major league opportunities this season, having allowed 23 runs on 39 hits over 33 1/3 innings (including five starts). That works out to a tough 5.94 ERA. He should see work out of the pen in low-leverage situations.
Sep 1 - 12:29 PM

Bryan Holaday will join the Tigers on Tuesday.

Holaday returned to the Triple-A Toledo lineup last week after a dislocated left thumb. He'll serve as an emergency third catcher for Detroit down the stretch. Kyle Ryan is also going to be a September 1 callup.
Aug 31 - 2:24 PM

Alfredo Simon was torched for six runs on six hits -- including four home runs -- over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Simon never had a chance, serving up a couple dingers in the first, another one in the second and a final one in the fourth. The Blue Jays are creaming everyone these days, but this outing was a continuation of a rotten stretch for Simon, who has allowed at least four runs in 11 of his last 13 starts. He'll get the Indians next.
