Tigers rotation set for first week of games
The Tigers rotation is now set for the early stretch, including a nice early spring matchup next weekend.
We already knew Kyle Lobstein was starting Tuesday’s Grapefruit League opener against the Orioles at Joker Marchant Stadium. From there, Anibal Sanchez will face the O’s on Wednesday in Sarasota. Alfredo Simon will face the Braves on Thursday in Lakeland. David Price will make his first start of the spring Friday against the Mets in Port St. Lucie opposite Matt Harvey, who makes his return from Tommy John surgery.
From there, Justin Verlander will make his return against the Braves at Disney World. The rotation comes around Sunday to Shane Greene, who will make his Tigers debut Sunday against the Astros in Lakeland.
If you’re into counting turns to Opening Day, Verlander is on track. Price, however, could easily get on track with an extra day of rest.
