DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers placed three pitchers in Baseball America's newly released list of the game's top 100 prospects. Two of them -- Alex Faedo and Matt Manning -- are homegrown. The top-rated prospect, Franklin Perez, was acquired last August from the Houston Astros in the Justin Verlander trade. The magazine ranks Perez 35th overall, followed by Faedo at No. 50 and Manning at No. 78.
DETROIT -- Don't worry too much about Journey and Def Leppard tearing up the outfield grass in Comerica Park like Metallica did last summer. And no, it has nothing to do with the differences between metal fans and dad rockers. It's all about recovery time. Journey and Def Leppard are teaming up for a summer tour that will take them to venues and ballparks across the United States, including a stop at Comerica Park on July 13. A day later, the Zac Brown Band will be at the ballpark.
DETROIT -- When former Detroit Tigers slugger J.D. Martinez hired super-agent Scott Boras just days before hitting the free-agent market this winter, there was buzz that he would be seeking a $200 million deal. But with three weeks left until spring training, Martinez and many other free agents (high-profile or otherwise) are still unsigned. And a report this week suggested Martinez's best offer was only five years for $100 million, just half of what he was reportedly seeking.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
