KEY GAME INFORMATION
KANSAS CITY: 2017: 80-82, third place.
MANAGER: Ned Yost (ninth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Jesse Hahn, CF Jon Jay, 1B Lucas Duda, RHP Wily Peralta, RHP Justin Grimm.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B Eric Hosmer, CF Lorenzo Cain, LHP Jason Vargas, RHP Joakim Soria, LHP Mike Minor, OF Melky Cabrera, LHP Scott Alexander, DH Brandon Moss, RHP Mike Morin, LHP Ryan Buchter, RHP Trevor Cahill.
OUTLOOK: This was supposed to be a rebuilding year in Kansas City, when most of the Royals' top players hit free agency en masse. With Moustakas and Escobar finding little market, both returned to Kansas City with prove-it contracts. That gives the Royals a fighting chance to stay competitive into July, and then all bets are off. But the reality is there are still far too many holes, both in the lineup and on the pitching staff, for the Royals to be considered contenders. They would do well to match the 80 wins they had last season, and could be a big seller at the July 31 trade deadline, which would allow them to replenish a shallow farm system and begin their rebuilding job in earnest.
DETROIT: 2017: 64-98, fifth place.
MANAGER: Ron Gardenhire (first season).
ADDITIONS: OF Leonys Martin, RHP Mike Fiers, LHP Francisco Liriano, OF Victor Reyes.
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Brad Ausmus, 2B Ian Kinsler, RHP Anibal Sanchez, INF Andrew Romine, RHP Bruce Rondon.
OUTLOOK: The Tigers traded Verlander, Justin Upton and J.D. Martinez last season, then dealt away Kinsler during the offseason. There could be more big moves on the horizon ' Fulmer, Iglesias and Castellanos should all have some trade value, but each of them is young enough that he could be useful to the Tigers when they become competitive again. That's especially true of Fulmer, the 2016 AL Rookie of the Year. Barring a huge surprise in terms of on-field results, the biggest suspense this season might revolve around how general
MANAGER Al Avila approaches the next few steps in the rebuild.
PREVIEW
Tigers look to take 3 of 4 from Royals
 

Miguel Cabrera said he feels energized by the way his younger Detroit Tigers teammates are playing.

The Tigers have won five of their last six games and will try to take the finale of a four-game series against visiting Kansas City on Sunday. The Tigers won two of the first three games this weekend, including a 12-4 romp Saturday.

"A lot of guys, they want to prove they can play in the big leagues, want to prove they're good," Cabrera said. "They have great talent. So when you see a team like that, it makes you feel good and makes you go out there and play hard like they play, too."

Detroit (9-10) gave away a ninth-inning lead in the nightcap of a doubleheader Friday but roared right back the next afternoon.

"After last night, a really tough one in that nightcap, that's a good rebound," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "These guys came back and really got after it early in the game. That's always fun to see. You don't anything to lull and drag and it didn't."

Cleanup hitter Nicholas Castellanos hit his first homer of the season Saturday. They also got another homer from second-year outfielder JaCoby Jones.

Jones, who batted .170 last season, has four extra-base hits in the series. He raised his average to .297 this weekend.

"I'm pretty confident. That's the biggest thing," he said. "If I struggle or if I hit two homers, I'm just trying to be the same person. Just staying positive and being confident. It's helped out so far. That's how the clubhouse is. Everybody's confident and having fun."

Cabrera said he feels confident at the plate, even if he's no longer an MVP-type player. He's batting a team-best .299 with two homers and 13 RBIs, as well as a .392 on-base percentage.

Castellanos is hitting .286 and third baseman Jeimer Candelario, another second-year player, is hitting .275 with three homers and 10 RBIs after a slow start. Leadoff hitter Leonys Martin, picked off the scrapheap and making less than $2 million, leads the team with 14 runs scored.

Francisco Liriano will oppose Erik Skoglund on Sunday.

Liriano (2-1, 2.55 ERA) won his team debut against Kansas City on April 2, allowing one run on four hits in 6 2/3 innings. In his last outing Tuesday, he gave up two runs in five innings against Baltimore and was credited with the victory.

He's 8-5 with a 4.16 ERA in 20 career appearances against the Royals (4-15).

Skoglund (0-2, 9.31) has given up five earned runs in both his starts this season, including a five-inning stint against Toronto on Tuesday. The 6-foot-7 left-hander made one start against the Tigers last season, holding them scoreless over 6 2/3 innings and collecting the victory.

Kansas City manager Ned Yost is seeing signs of life from his offense, though poor pitching nullified that Saturday.

"We got 11 hits," he said. "Look, we're getting guys on. We're not driving guys in but we're getting guys on. Just keep getting on until we start driving guys in."
