Detroit Tigers: Games on Television in the Next Week
Detroit Tigers baseball is back. With Grapefruit League action underway, Detroit has already played 23 contests. Here’s where you can see them on television in the next week.
Detroit Tigers fans haven’t had many opportunities to see the team play in televised games so far in Spring Training.
However, that will soon change as Detroit will play a grand total of four televised games in the coming week.
Overall, the Tigers have been doing better from a results standpoint in Spring Training as of late, with seven wins, a tie and a loss in the team’s last nine games.
Detroit’s most recent win came on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles.
Matt Boyd struck out four while allowing just six hits and a run in five innings.
Elsewhere, Shane Greene threw a scoreless inning despite allowing two walks. Warwick Saupold was the only other pitcher to throw, racking up three shutout innings.
The number three seemed to be a theme for the minor league veteran, who allowed just three hits while striking out—you guessed it—three batters.
Saupold also recorded the rare, three-inning save.

In terms of offense, multiple Tigers helped propel the team to a seven-run showing against the O’s.
Matt Murton and John Hicks both launched two-run home runs for the team, as Michael Almanzar and James McCann also notched RBI.
Detroit was able to utilize a number of bench and reserve players on Sunday. James McCann was the only player in the starting lineup assured of a starting gig on Opening Day.
Andrew Romine, Alex Presley, Steven Moya, Mikie Mahtook, Dominic Ficociello, Efren Navarro, Dixon Machado and Juan Perez also started for the Tigers.
The group eventually made way for the likes of Almanzar, Hicks, Murton, A.J. Simcox and Brett Pill.
The Tigers return to action on Monday against the New York Mets, but fans won’t be able to see the team on television until Thursday against Atlanta.
Per a page on the Tigers’ official website listing Detroit’s broadcast schedule, the team will play four televised games this week.
The team will play back to back games against the National League East franchise on Thursday (on the road) and on Friday (in Lakeland). Both contests will air on Fox Sports Detroit.
