Castellanos is batting .234 with 16 doubles, four triples, eight home runs and 37 RBIs in 70 games. This will be Machado’s second start of the season at third base.
After improving his fitness, command, control of baserunners, Rondon gets the call up from ToledoSAN DIEGO — The Detroit Tigers recalled right-handed reliever Bruce Rondon from Triple-A Toledo today after releasing struggling veteran Francisco Rodriguez. Rondon earned the promotion with his performance over the last month, but he still has a lot to prove. Tigers general manager Al Avila was frank when asked whether he still viewed Rondon as the team’s closer of the future.
Tigers GM says team tried to get veteran back on track, but it didn't work, part of the reasoning K-Rod was cutSAN DIEGO — General manager Al Avila is frustrated. Chris Ilitch, who last month was unanimously approved as the new controlling owner of the Detroit Tigers, apparently is too, according to Avila. But the Tigers haven’t yet decided to sell off. And it doesn’t appear that they’re ready to make a leadership change either.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
