The trading deadline came and went and with it, no Tigers were dealt. I thought for sure the Tigers might try to unload Kenny Rogers but they must not have found any takers. Not sure if it was six losses in seven starts or the 7.53 August ERA, but it’s not a huge surprise we couldn’t find any takers for the playoff run. Oddly, Rogers two best starts came against two of the better teams in the American League. He threw eight innings and gave up just one unearned run against the White Sox on June 12th and then he threw seven shutout innings against the Angels way back on May 26th.
The White Caps finish up their regular season today then they head to South Bend, where they actually kicked off their season way back on April 3rd. For first person coverage, pitcher Andrew Hess continues to blog about his season with the White Caps over at Tigers Minors.
