The Tigers are starting to get healthier. Jose Iglesias returned to the team this weekend, Jordan Zimmerman started his rehab assignment this past week, and the reports have Nick Castellanos returning in mid September.
I believe the team can still make a run for the playoffs. They are 2.5 games out I believe, and have the easiest remaining schedule in the American League. However, they do play Cleveland and Kansas City in the coming weeks, those series will tell us how the team will do this year, if they miss the playoffs, it will be interesting to see wha they do this offseason.
