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 continue to play out string vs. Royals
 

The end is near for the Detroit Tigers but it doesn't appear to be coming soon enough.

They've lost eight of their last 10 contests heading into a four-game home series against the Kansas City Royals, which begins Thursday night. Detroit was swept at home by Minnesota over the past three days, including an 8-2 thumping Wednesday afternoon.

The Tigers fell behind 6-0 in the first four innings and were held scoreless until the ninth. They only banged out four hits.

"We just had a bad day out there," Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said. "We didn't do too much until late. We got a couple of hits but we didn't swing the bat well."

One positive heading in the Royals series is they'll have their most consistent starter in the opener.

Tigers starter Matthew Boyd (9-12, 4.08 ERA) has a 3.09 ERA since the All-Star break spanning 11 starts, with 68 strikeouts in 67 innings.

He held Cleveland scoreless until the sixth inning in his last start Friday. He then gave up back-to-back homers to Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson and wound up with a no-decision in Detroit's 5-4 victory.

"It's not dispiriting when we win," Boyd said to MLB.com. "It's fine, you can live with it. I just fell behind and kicked myself there a little bit."

Boyd was brilliant in his last home start, giving up one run on two hits over seven innings against St. Louis while racking up 11 strikeouts.

He's struggled for the most part against the Royals this season. In four starts, he's 1-3 with a 4.32 ERA. For his career, Boyd is 3-7 with a 6.50 ERA in 13 starts against Kansas City. Royals leadoff hitter Whit Merrifield has been a big thorn in his side with 10 hits in 23 at-bats.

Kansas City's scheduled starter, Jorge Lopez, was acquired from Milwaukee in the deal that sent third baseman Mike Moustakas to the Brewers. He's won two of his last three starts, holding Baltimore and Minnesota to one run apiece.

In his last start -- a rematch with the Twins on Friday, Lopez took a no-decision while giving up three runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings.

There's a lot of uncertainly whether he'll be able to start Thursday. He's dealing with a left rib contusion. He suffered the injury during a collision with third baseman Hunter Dozier.

"It depends how I feel. Tomorrow's going to be another day," Lopez told mlb.com Wednesday. "I think I'm going to make it. It's nothing that's really, really bothering me, but I'm still uncomfortable."

Lopez threw 50 pitches Tuesday.

"He felt it a little bit, but got through it fine, which is a good sign," manager Ned Yost said to mlb.com. "Which means that he's still in line to make the start. ... I anticipate him making a start. Which doesn't mean he's going to, but I think he's going to."

Yost's club hit the 100-loss mark Wednesday, dropping a 2-1 decision at Pittsburgh. The Royals have won nine of the first 15 meetings with Detroit this season.
