4/12/2014 | Tigers' Kelly OK after crash into outfield wall

4/11/2014 | Ausmus enjoying time near home in Del Mar

4/11/2014 | Smyly returns to starting rotation on Wednesday

Drew Smyly reprised his role as bullpen savior Wednesday against the Dodgers, but his relief stint will come to an end in the next couple days. Manager Brad Ausmus said the left-hander is tentatively scheduled to return to the rotation and start Wednesday against Cleveland at Comerica Park.


4/11/2014 | Putkonen makes long-awaited first appearance

4/11/2014 | Tigers' offense shut down by brilliant Cashner

Brad Ausmus returned home to San Diego hoping to get in some surfing, but found the ocean to be too peaceful on the Tigers off-day.

4/10/2014 | For Ausmus, long road began in San Diego

4/10/2014 | Boyhood dreams becoming a reality for Castellanos

4/9/2014 | Despite results, Nathan feels he's making strides
