Detroit Tigers starting pitcher David Price very well might be the biggest free agent in baseball this upcoming offseason.
Justin Verlander heard a few boos, Ian Kinsler was ejected and Nick Castellanos was hit in the face by a groundball.
The Detroit Tigers have inquired about Colorado Rockies closer John Axford, according to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.
Ian Kinsler was ejected from Detroit’s game against Baltimore on Sunday after slamming his bat down in disgust when he hit a flyball.
Detroit manager Brad Ausmus acknowledged the Tigers have accidentally called the bullpen before when they meant to contact the replay room, leaving bullpen coach Mick Billmeyer a bit puzzled.
Verlander allowed a solo homer by Jones in the first, but that was the only Baltimore baserunner in the first three innings.
Ian Kinsler cleanly singled to right-center field to open the bottom of the first. Victor Martinez walked later that inning, but Detroit didn’t manage a single baserunner after that.
In 17 starts this season, Kazmir has a 3.16 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 96 strikeouts and 34 walks.
David Price is looking to reach double-digit wins for the seventh straight season Saturday night when the Tigers and Orioles continue their three-game series at Comerica Park.
Victor Martinez and Jose Iglesias also went deep for Detroit, and Anibal Sanchez worked in and out of trouble for six innings.
