Tigers vs. White Sox preview: Tarik Skubal welcome the AL Central leaders to town

Just last weekend, the Tigers went down 1-3 to the White Sox in a four game set in Chicago. Now, they’ll welcome the AL Central leaders into Comerica Park looking to return the favor. The Tigers have been playing reasonably good ball for almost six weeks now, but this is still going to be a tough task. Perhaps their best chance to win, considering a potential bullpen game again on Sunday, comes Friday night with Tarik Skubal on the mound against Lucas Giolito, who surrendered three home runs to the Tigers in his last outing.

Fantasy Baseball Week 12 Preview: Top 10 sleeper pitchers highlight Tarik Skubal, Shane McClanahan

Once again, the two-start options who might actually be available in your league are largely uninspiring, which is why three of my top four recommendations for Week 12 (June 14-20) are in line for only one start. By the fifth recommendation, I'm already getting a little squeamish in categories leagues, where preserving ERA and WHIP are typically of greater concern than simply maximizing volume.

Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Quality start in no-decision

Skubal didn't factor into the decision Friday against the White Sox after giving up four runs (three earned) on seven hits and three walks while fanning six across six innings. Skubal posted his second quality start of the season, and both have come over his last three outings. In fact,...

Detroit Tigers: Good News and Bad News about Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal

Pitchers Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal watch practice. The Detroit Tigers are now a month deep into a stretch of quality, competitive baseball. That seemed impossible after a 9-24 start in which they sported an ugly -74 run differential, but since May 8th the Tigers are 16-10, and they’ve outscored their opponents 118-102.

Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire: Tarik Skubal, Daniel Bard, Lucas Sims

Enough time has passed in the 2021 MLB season for previously added and dropped players to get picked up again. When submitting a waiver-wire claim, fantasy managers like to think that player will make a lasting impact throughout the season. More often than not, you’re dropping him for the newest shiny toy following a slump or injury. Constantly churning through players is all part of the game, as you’ll see your diligence rewarded if a few turn into roster mainstays.

Detroit Tigers: Tarik Skubal is dialed in and pitching just as advertised

Detroit Tigers rookie starting pitcher Tarik Skubal has found his groove, and it’s great for the organization. Similar to how Akil Baddoo started the 2021 season off, water always finds its level. Many of us anticipated Baddoo wouldn’t be able to maintain the hot start, yet he’s become an everyday player for the Detroit Tigers. It’s the same story with Eric Haase. He’s in the midst of a tremendous, highly productive stretch, but it’s one that won’t continue for the duration of the season.

Tarik Skubal stymies Yankees as Tigers complete 3-game sweep

Detroit — The unofficial start of summer is here, Comerica Park capacity restrictions are gone, and the Yankees are swept. The weekend’s three-game meltdown by New York was a reminder of past playoff poundings, while the young Tigers continued to show promise. Starter Tarik Skubal tossed six shutout innings on...

Niyo: With Tarik Skubal and Casey Mize dealing, Tigers’ future starts to take shape

They arrived together in the big leagues, so maybe it’s no coincidence that they’re arriving now at just about the same time, too. But nine months after Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal boarded the Tigers’ team plane for the first time, headed to Chicago to make their major-league debuts last August — “Skub and I sat together and we were kind of in awe, honestly,” Mize said at the time — they’re now settling in and feeling like they belong.

New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers: Michael King vs. Tarik Skubal

It’s been a pretty brutal stretch for the Yankees. After ending last week by sweeping the White Sox, a spate of injuries sucked the air out of the room, and the ensuing games have been brutal. They lost two of three to the Blue Jays, which, while annoying since it...
