The 2015 Detroit Tigers season was the team's 115th season, and their 16th season at Comerica Park. This season saw the release of President and General Manager Dave Dombrowski, who had been with the team since 2002. In a season plagued by injuries to star players Justin Verlander, Víctor Martínez, Miguel Cabrera, José Iglesias, and Aníbal Sánchez, the Tigers finished in last place in their division with a 74–87 record, had their first losing season since 2008, and failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2010.

Pitching

  • On April 14, Shane Greene became the first Tigers pitcher to pitch eight innings or more without an earned run in consecutive starts to begin the season since Bob Sykes in 1978.[56]
  • On April 19, Shane Greene became the first Tigers pitcher to pitch at least seven innings and allow one run or fewer in each of his first three starts since Jack Morris in 1984.[57]
  • On April 25, Alfredo Simón became the first Tigers pitcher to win his first four starts in a season since Frank Tanana in 1988.[58]
  • On June 12, David Price became the first Tigers pitcher to pitch a complete game shutout in 93 pitches or fewer since Armando Galarraga's near-perfect game on June 2, 2010. Price became just the fifth Tigers pitcher in the last 15 years to throw back-to-back complete games, following Rick Porcello, Justin Verlander, Mark Redman and Steve Sparks.[59]
  • On June 12, David Price became just the second Tigers pitcher since 1983 to induce four double plays in a game, and the first since Jeremy Bonderman in 2007.[59]
  • On August 20, Alfredo Simón recorded his first career complete game shutout in the Tigers 4–0 win over the Texas Rangers. He allowed only one hit in the game, a double to Rougned Odor in the fifth inning, while walking two and striking out five.[60]
  • On August 23, Blaine Hardy's homerless streak of 84+23 innings ended after allowing a home run to Mike Napoli. This was the longest active homerless innings streak in the major leagues. The last time Hardy had allowed a home run was to Jason Castro on June 27, 2014. Hardy holds the franchise record for the most appearances by a left-hander without allowing a home run, at 87, and was two appearances away from tying Bernie Boland's record for 89 homerless games. Boland's streak lasted from 1915 to 1920, and covered 198+23 innings.[61]
  • On August 26, Justin Verlander came within three outs of his third career no-hitter against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, before allowing a double to Chris Iannetta. This was his seventh career complete game shutout, and second career complete game one-hitter. This marked the seventh time in the last five seasons Verlander carried a no-hit bid into at least the seventh inning, two more than any other pitcher in baseball.[62][63]

Defensive

Team accomplishments

  • The Tigers opened the regular season with consecutive shutout wins for the first time in franchise history. They became the 14th team in the last 100 years to do so, and the first American League team to do so since the 1977 California Angels.[68]
  • The Tigers extended their shutout streak by six innings, before allowing an unearned run. The Tigers set a modern-day American League record for shutout innings to begin a season at 24 innings, surpassing the previous record of 22 innings set by the 1947 Chicago White Sox. The Tigers' 24-inning scoreless streak to begin the season is the third-longest streak in Major League history.[69][70]
  • The Tigers went 32 innings to start the season before allowing an earned run, tying the modern day Major League record set by the 1963 St. Louis Cardinals.[71]
  • The Tigers became the third team in Major League history to score at least 30 runs in their first four games while allowing five or fewer, the other teams being the 2007 New York Mets and the 1888 Brooklyn Bridegrooms.[72]
  • On April 12, the Tigers recorded their sixth consecutive game with at least 10 hits, setting a franchise record. This is the longest streak in the Major Leagues since the 1999 Cleveland Indians had at least 10 hits in 10 consecutive games.[73]
  • The Tigers' 6–0 record to begin the season is their best start since 1985, and is tied for the second-best start to a season in franchise history.[74]
  • The Tigers went 30+23 innings without allowing a walk, from the eighth inning on April 12 against the Cleveland Indians until the second inning on April 17 against the Chicago White Sox. This was their longest stretch without allowing a walk since 1914.[75]
  • On August 19, the Tigers compiled at least 19 hits in consecutive games for the fourth time in franchise history, and the first time since June 30, 1935.[76]
  • On September 22, the Tigers came within two outs of a combined no-hitter against the Chicago White Sox, before allowing a triple to Tyler Saladino.[77]

All-Stars

The Tigers sent four players to the 2015 All-Star Game. First baseman Miguel Cabrera was voted in as the starter at first base in the fan voting, while shortstop José Iglesias, outfielder J. D. Martinez and pitcher David Price were selected as reserves in the player voting. Cabrera did not participate in the All-Star game due to a left calf strain.[78] The Tigers had a chance to send a fifth player to the All-Star Game this season, as outfielder Yoenis Céspedes was one of the five finalists for the AL in the All-Star Final Vote, but he was beaten out by Mike Moustakas of the Kansas City Royals.[79][80]

Price became the winning pitcher of the game, marking the second consecutive All-Star game that featured a Tiger as the winning pitcher, following Max Scherzer who won in 2014.[81]
