Detroit Tigers right-hander Shane Greene is expected to make his next start, bouncing back from a nerve issue his last outing.
“You have to be open-minded to evolving changes,” said Dombrowski, who hired Ausmus to replace Jim Leyland in 2014.
“That was a close game, that was a quality start,” Simon said after a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night.
Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers has hit his 400th career home run, a milestone that became official after an early rain delay.
Cabrera hit his 399th career homer and third in two games in the seventh inning off Mitch Harris, tying Andres Galarraga for most by a Venezuelan-born player.
Manager Brad Ausmus’ bullpen-by-committee style is working so far for the Detroit Tigers in 2015.
Miguel Cabrera homered twice and drove in five runs, and Anibal Sanchez pitched eight sharp innings to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 13-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday.
Victor Martinez, who usually hits behind Miguel Cabrera, is getting a day off.
“I can’t give you an exact time frame, [but] it’s certainly shorter than what they expect if he’d have had surgery,” Ausmus said.
The Detroit Tigers Foundation Bow Tie is back for a second year.
