The Detroit Tigers announced Tuesday that their starting pitching rotation for their best of five series with the Oakland A's will consist of Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, Annibal Sanchez and Doug Fister. Bruce Rondon and Phil Coke are both injured and unavailable for the first series.
The A's game one starter is Bartolo Colon. Tigers manager Jim Leyland says Miguel Cabrera is playing with a "lot of pain." Game one first pitch Friday is 9:36pm Michigan time.
