Tigers' 2015 awards: MVP, LVP ...

Let's take a moment to digest it all -- the good, the bad and the ugly -- as we hand out awards (some sincere, others more dubious) for 2015.

Katie Strang 

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus admits it's been difficult year. Players have been grinding it out since September. Everyone now looking forward to rest and recharge. Team upbeat about future. "We're not rebuilding. We're not building from scratch."

Katie Strang 

It was not a somber scene in Tigers room. Seemed to be some palpable relief about putting disappointing season in rear-view mirror. Said Ian Kinsler: "It'll be pretty easy to flush, honestly."


Norris leads Tigers to 6-0 win over White Sox

Daniel Norris pitched one-hit ball for five innings and Tyler Collins had a bases-clearing triple as the Detroit Tigers finished their first-to-worst tumble in the AL Central with a 6-0 win over

Katie Strang 

Detroit Tigers shut out the Chicago White Sox 6-0 in finale, bringing a disappointing 2015 season to close. Some bright spots moving forward but a lot to digest over what went wrong this year and how to fix things for 2016

Katie Strang 

Daniel Norris very sharp in his last start of the season. He gives up just one hit in 5 innings pitched. Young lefty showing tons of promise heading into next season

Katie Strang 

Tigers took some heat for allowing P Daniel Norris go 54 pitches in 1st inning in last start. Not an issue today. Retired all 3 batters faced on 15 pitches. 85 is today's pitch count

Katie Strang 

Last game of the season for the Detroit Tigers. Last night's loss assured the club of a last-place finish in the AL Central Division. Protects club from surrendering first-round draft pick in event of top free agent signing

Katie Strang 

Cabrera, asked if it was hard to not think about what might have been had he not gotten injured with respect to team's playoff chances : "Who knows?" Brad Ausmus, however, wondered if it may have been enough to carry the team

Katie Strang 

Miguel Cabrera didn't want to accept accolades yet for batting title but his teammates were ready to shower him with praise. Justin Verlander even made off with his batting gloves to commemorate the occasion.

Katie Strang 

With tonight's 4-3 loss in the penultimate game of the season, the Detroit Tigers are assured of finishing last in the AL Central, an outcome few would've predicted considering club has previously won four straight division titles.
