Tigers 2023 Recap
The 2023 Tigers came up short for the playoffs but improved their record to 78-84. That was a 12-win improvement overall. The team had a slightly better road game record vs. home game record. Reese Olson, Tarik Skubal, and Spencer Torkelson performed very well in 2023. Jake Rogers and Javier Baez were two veteran players who helped keep the team in the playoff hunt.
Manager A.J. Hinch stated in October of 2023 that he plans to stay on for the next season. His relationship with Scott Harris, president of baseball operations is quite positive. That should keep the team moving in the right direction during the upcoming offseason. When fans look back at the Tigers biggest challenges last season, the injury bug comes to mind. Riley Green's injury, along with Eduardo Rodriguez's situation certainly cast a shadow over the summer months. Things were looking up in April and May. The struggles started in June, with a nine-game losing streak and just one victory in the next eleven games. The team played .500 baseball after that, so there wasn't much of a recovery.

In 2021, the Detroit Tigers final record was 77-85, putting them in third place in the American League Central division, above the Royals and Minnesota Twins. The team took no time off to ponder their position, hiring Ryan Sienko as catching coordinator. The team is also making major changes to its development staff. Detroit hopes to have solid output from Robbie Grossman again in 2022. The Tigers brought in a new pitching coach and director of pitching development. This team may still be in rebuild mode but is moving in the right direction.
2019 Tigers Review
The Detroit Tigers won 47 games in 2019, giving them room for growth. As they are in the early stages of a rebuild, the Tigers made just a few moves this offseason to improve the team and decided to hold back for future opportunities In December, they added catcher Austin Romine, second baseman Jonathan Schoop, and first baseman C.J. Cron on one-year contracts. They also added right-handed pitcher Zach Godley via a minor league contract. In January they settled arbitration with right-handed pitcher Michael Fulmer, left-handed pitcher Matthew Boyd, right-handed pitcher Buck Farmer, outfielder JaCoby Jones, and left-handed pitcher Daniel Norris. They also added right-handed pitcher Ivan Nova on a one-year contract and traded left-handed pitcher Matt Hall for catcher Jhon Nunez.
They also added right-handed pitcher Alex Wilson and Infielder Jordy Mercer on minor league contracts. The Tigers plan to sit back and let these young players develop. For example, their prized prospect, right-handed pitcher Casey Mize, is expected to make his major league debut later this season. Mize is considered to be the best right-handed pitching prospect in baseball. In addition, they do hold the top draft choice this June, which they are expected to use on Vanderbilt shortstop Austin Martin. The franchise is in the early stages of a long rebuild; in baseball, rebuilds can take years. However, they can also be fun to watch.
