  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Straight-line running Tuesday

    Urshela (hamstring) did some straight-line running drills Tuesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    It's a good sign that he's already doing some running just a few days after landing on the injured list with a right hamstring strain. Urshela will eventually progress to running the bases and could need a short rehab assignment before rejoining the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Placed on IL

    The Tigers placed Urshela on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right hamstring strain.

    Urshela suffered the injury while running to first base during Friday's win and had to be removed from the game in the second inning. Matt Vierling will start at third base Saturday and could be in line to do so regularly while Urshela is out, though the newly promoted Buddy Kennedy may also see a few starts.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Exits with hamstring injury

    Urshela was removed from Friday's game against the Twins due to right hamstring tightness.

    Urshela appeared to be limping toward the dugout after grounding out in the second inning, and he was replaced at third base by Matt Vierling once the Tigers took the field. The severity of Urshela's injury remains unknown, but Zach McKinstry would likely benefit from additional playing time should the 32-year-old have to miss a few games.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: On bench for day game

    Urshela is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Urshela will see his streak of four consecutive starts come to an end as the Tigers give him a breather for a day game after a night game. Zach McKinstry will step in for Urshela at third base.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Sitting to begin twin bill

    Urshela isn't in the Tigers' lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    Urshela will get a breather to begin Saturday after going 0-for-3 with a walk and an RBI during Friday's win. His absence will allow Matt Vierling to pick up a start at third base while batting sixth.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Takes seat Monday

    Urshela is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Sitting for nightcap

    Urshela isn't in the Tigers' lineup for the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Urshela went 3-for-5 with two RBI and scored a run during Detroit's win over the Mets in Game 1, and he will get a breather for the second game of Thursday's slate. Andy Ibanez will fill in at the hot corner and bat seventh.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: On bench for opener

    Urshela is absent from the lineup for Thursday's season opener against the White Sox.

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch has opted to roll with Andy Ibanez at third base against southpaw Garrett Crochet. Urshela could still be the favorite to see the bulk of the starts at the hot corner, but they might come mostly versus right-handers initially.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Not locked in at third base yet

    Urshela has yet to lock down the Tigers' third base job, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Petzold writes that Urshela remains "Plan A" at third base, but he's receiving competition from "Plan B" Matt Vierling, with Zach McKinstry and Andy Ibanez also in the mix but on the periphery. The Tigers might ultimately not settle on an everyday guy at the hot corner, especially since all of the players in the competition are capable of playing multiple positions.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Not viewed as platoon bat

    Tigers president of baseball operations Scott Harris said Friday that he does not view Urshela as a strict platoon bat, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Urshela was much better against lefties than righties during an abbreviated sample in 2023, but his career splits are pretty even, as he's posted a .773 OPS versus southpaws and .734 OPS against right-handers. The 32-year-old will be in the mix to receive ample playing time at third base in Detroit and is also capable of filling in at all other infield positions. It's possible the Tigers' addition of Urshela will lead to Matt Vierling spending more time in the outfield.

  • Tigers' Gio Urshela: Signs with Detroit

    Urshela signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Tigers on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Urshela slashed .299/.329/.374 with 24 RBI in 228 plate appearances with the Angels last year before a fractured pelvis put an early end to his season in June. Now fully recovered from his injury, the 32-year-old infielder will join his fourth team in as many years. Though he primarily serves as a third baseman, Urshela has experience at all four infield positions, and he gives Detroit a bat capable of finding success versus left-handed pitchers (.790 OPS since 2021).

  • Angels' Gio Urshela: Ditches crutches

    Urshela (pelvis) said Sunday that he resumed walking without the aid of crutches earlier in the week, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Urshela has been out since mid-June with a fractured left pelvis, an injury that the Angels announced will keep him out for the remainder of the season. Fortunately for Urshela, he'll avoid surgery to address the injury, and he said Sunday that he should be in store for a normal offseason. The 31-year-old is set to become a free agent this winter and will likely have to settle for a one-year deal on the open market.

  • Angels' Gio Urshela: Out for season

    Urshela doesn't need surgery on his fractured pelvis, but he will miss the remainder of the season, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Urshela took an awkward tumble while running to first base which forced him out of Thursday's game against Texas. The good news is that he won't need to undergo surgery, so he could be ready for the start of spring training next year, but the book appears to be closed for Urshela this season after he slashed .299/.329/.374 with 24 RBI over 228 plate appearances.
