The 2019 Detroit Tigers season was the team's 119th season. This was the team's second year under manager Ron Gardenhire. They were officially eliminated from playoff contention on August 24.[1] On September 25, they secured the first overall pick in the 2020 Major League Baseball draft.[2] Following a loss in their final home game against the Minnesota Twins on September 26, the Tigers tied the 1939 St. Louis Browns for the most home losses (59) during a season in the modern era.[3] They finished the season 47–114, the worst record in all of Major League Baseball this season, and the team's second worst season in franchise history after their 43–119 record in 2003.[4] The Tigers only played 161 games due to a late season rainout in Chicago which cancelled the game due to both teams already having been eliminated from playoff contention.[5]

Announcer changes[edit]

Beginning this season, Fox Sports Detroit television announcers Mario Impemba and Rod Allen, who had been together since 2003, no longer were in the broadcast booth. Their contracts were not renewed due to an alleged physical altercation that occurred after the game on September 4, 2018.[6] On January 14, 2019, veteran sportscaster Matt Shepard was named play-by-play man, former Tigers teammates Kirk Gibson and Jack Morris were named color commentators, and Dan Petry was hired as a second studio analyst.[7] Gibson was also named special assistant to the general manager on January 28.[8] Shepard sat out 17 games, with Morris, Gibson, Petry and field reporter/studio analyst and former Tiger Craig Monroe sharing his duties during those games.[9]

Season highlights[edit]

Team accomplishments[edit]

  • On April 3, the Tigers became the third team since 1900 to win at least four of its first seven games when scoring a combined 12-or-fewer runs, joining the 1913 Philadelphia Phillies and the 1971 New York Mets.[53]
  • On April 4 against the Kansas City Royals, the Tigers won the game while recording more walks (7) than hits (6). The Tigers scored twice in the seventh inning without recording one hit, as they drew four consecutive walks, followed by a sacrifice fly.[54]
  • On August 21 against the Houston Astros, the Tigers closed as +435 underdogs at Caesars Sportsbook, making their 2–1 victory over the Astros the largest upset in MLB in the past 15 seasons.[55][56]

Individual accomplishments[edit]

Pitching[edit]

  • On March 28 against the Toronto Blue Jays, Jordan Zimmermann took a perfect game into the seventh inning, before allowing a two-out infield single to Teoscar Hernández.[57][58]
  • On March 31 against the Toronto Blue Jays, Matt Moore took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, before a one-out single by Richard Ureña ruined the no-hit bid.[59]
  • On April 3 against the New York Yankees, Matthew Boyd recorded a career-high 13 strikeouts. Boyd posted 10 strikeouts in his first start, becoming the first Tigers pitcher since 1908 to start the season with consecutive double-digit strikeout games. Boyd also set a record for the most strikeouts by a visiting pitcher at the current Yankee Stadium. His 13 strikeouts were the most by a Tigers pitcher since Max Scherzer recorded 14 in August 2014.[53][60][61]
  • On April 4 against the Kansas City Royals, Spencer Turnbull recorded a career-high 10 strikeouts. With Boyd's 13 strikeouts the day before, this marked the first time that Tigers pitchers had double-digit strikeouts in consecutive games since Rick Porcello and Aníbal Sánchez in 2014.[62]
  • On April 7 against the Kansas City Royals, Shane Greene became the first pitcher in Major League history to earn seven saves in his team's first 10 games since saves became an official MLB statistic in 1969.[63]
  • On April 10 against the Cleveland Indians, Shane Greene extended his saves record, becoming the first pitcher in Major League history to earn eight saves in his team's first 12 games since 1969.[64]
  • On July 4 against the Chicago White Sox, Matthew Boyd became the first pitcher in the live-ball era to record 13 strikeouts and zero walks in six innings or fewer in a game.[65]
