Ausmus' tenure comes to an end

After four seasons, the Tigers and Brad Ausmus are parting ways. Ausmus inherited a team that made it to the ALCS, but the Tigers took a major step back under the manager, failing to win a playoff game during his time in Detroit.

Vote: Is letting Ausmus go the right move for the Tigers?

The Detroit Tigers announced Friday afternoon that manager Brad Ausmus will not be back for the 2018 season. Is moving on from Ausmus the right thing for the team? How would you rate his performance as the Tigers' manager?

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Justin Verlander, Justin Upton and J.D. Martinez have departed, and now the Tigers have announced that Brad Ausmus will not return as manager in 2018. General manager Al Avila said the team is looking for "a new approach and a fresh start" with its next managerial hire. The Tigers are in full-fledged rebuilding mode, so it's likely they'll be looking for a developmental type as they move on from Ausmus. He posted a 312-325 record in his four seasons with the franchise.

I have talked to or texted with a lot of the Puerto Rican players in MLB, and a lot of them have not heard from their families regarding the impact of Hurricane Maria. This morning, Hurricane Maria became the first category 4 hurricane to make landfall in Puerto Rico since the 1920's. After the direct hit, most of the island is without power and communication is very limited.

Matthew Boyd has taken his no-hitter through seven, walking just one White Sox batter. He's flashing a great mix, throwing his fastball, change, slider and curve for strikes, and touching 95 with his heat.
