Tigers manager Jim Leyland says relievers Jose Valverde and Joaquin Benoit won't pitch in Thursday's fifth game of the AL championship series.
One moment, Justin Verlander and the Tigers were on the verge of watching their season slip away.
It was nearly two years ago, hours before the New York Yankees' World Series opener against Philadelphia. As players prepared, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman went up to his office and telephoned a half-dozen of his counterparts, among them Detroit's Dave Dombrowski.
Away from the madness of a cigar party for a moment, Jim Leyland nearly cried. For everybody who figured there was no way he would manage the Tigers beyond this season, for all those who couldn't envision a comeback after Detroit fell behind by eight games in early May, Leyland sat in his office puffing on his own celebratory stogie, a black "2011 MLB Playoffs" hat on his head. Detroit is AL Central champion.
The Detroit Tigers have put pitcher Phil Coke on the 15-day disabled list.
Brandon Inge homered, Johnny Damon singled in the tiebreaking run in the sixth inning and the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 Sunday to end a six-game skid and avoid a losing season.
Max Scherzer pitched seven solid innings and Danny Worth hit his first homer, helping the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 on Wednesday night.
