One of the Tigers’ remaining arbitration-eligible quartet avoided a possible square-off Friday when Shane Greene agreed on a 2018 contract that will pay the Detroit Tigers’ bullpen closer $1.95 million. The figure was revealed by a Tigers source connected with the negotiations who requested anonymity. Jose Iglesias, Nicholas Castellanos, and reliever Alex Wilson failed to settle on new contracts ahead of Friday’s 1 p.m. deadline for arbitration-eligible players to reach accord with their teams.
One thing you can say about the Tigers farm system, and one thing they would prefer wasn’t true, is that their minor-league affiliates have been remarkably consistent in recent years. Double A Erie: One plus-.500 finish in last eight years. Single A Lakeland: One winning season in its past seven summers of baseball at the Tigers’ spring-training and minor-league headquarters. Single A West Michigan has been the Tigers’ happy exception, with winning efforts in 11 of the past 13 seasons.
A quick scan of Winter League data will tell a range of stories, good to sometimes ugly, about various Tigers players and their off-season ventures with Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Mexico, and Australia teams. On the plus side, there is Isaac Paredes, who next month turns 19, and who is showing why the Tigers insisted he be included in last July’s trade that sent Justin Wilson and Alex Avila to the Cubs.
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".
