The BYB staff looks at the week in Tigers news and more.

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

In the wake of the Tigers stunning takedown of the Houston Astros, Ashley McClennan is on the IL, so host Brandon Day flies solo to unpack the rash of injuries, the shutdown of Casey Mize, Isaac Paredes, Travis Demeritte, and much more...

There are three segments to this one, roughly 30 minutes each.

  • In part one, we’ll look at the Tigers incredible victory over the Astros, and the rash of injuries and shutdowns plaguing the organization.
  • Part two is a look at the coming roster crunch in pitching at Toledo and Detroit next year, the possibility for some creative usage, and the potential for a deep bullpen in 2020.
  • In part three, I’ll discuss Travis Demerrite and Joey Wentz and the strong early returns they’ve provided for the Shane Greene trade. And finally, Isaac Paredes isn’t exactly neglected, but he still seems to be flying just a bit under the prospect radar. Tigers fans should be excited for him anyway.
