9/29/2018 @ MILWAUKEE  
9/30/2018 @ MILWAUKEE  
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.
Winless Norris faces Royals in Tigers' home finale

Daniel Norris was as effective as he has been all year in his last start. The next step for the Detroit Tigers left-hander is to get a win before the season ends.

Norris will have two more shots at that, including the finale of a four-game series against Kansas City on Sunday afternoon. The game will also serve as Detroit's home finale.

Norris (0-5, 5.71 ERA) held Minnesota scoreless for five innings Tuesday before coming out in the sixth after allowing two runs. He spent much of the season on the disabled list after undergoing groin surgery.

"I felt I located my fastball. I changed speeds, and I was spinning my curveball pretty well," Norris told the Detroit News afterward. "I got a little tired there in the sixth, leaving the ball up. But I didn't want to come out."

The Tigers hope that Norris can get a little boost of confidence heading into the offseason and claim a rotation spot next spring. He was regarded as one of the majors' top pitching prospects when he was acquired in 2015 during a trade deadline swap with Toronto.

Injuries have prevented Norris from fulfilling that potential and he's still trying to regain his fastball velocity. He has been throwing fastballs in the low 90s after reaching the mid-90s earlier in his career.

His outing Sunday will be his fifth start since being activated.

"I like the way he competes. I like his stuff," Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire told MLB.com. "He's missed a lot of baseball, so he's about where you normally are in the first few weeks out of spring training as a pitcher. He's been working very hard to get back, and he's got good stuff.

"He's got all the pitches that you need to get people out in this league. I like the way he competes. I'm excited about this kid."

Norris is 1-2 with a 3.89 ERA in eight career starts against Kansas City.

He'll be opposed by rookie right-hander Brad Keller (8-6, 3.17 ERA), who has won four of his last five decisions. He wound up with a no-decision Monday after surrendering four runs and 10 hits in six innings at Pittsburgh, though he also struck out seven.

"I obviously didn't have my best command today, especially early on," Keller told MLB.com afterward. "But the changeup started to come on late, so I tried to roll with that. I felt like I had a few more innings, and then that seventh inning -- base hit up the middle and then kind of a cheap hit right there got me out of that game. But definitely a grind one."

The Tigers haven't seen him since he was moved into the rotation in late May. He made four relief appearances against them in the spring, going 0-1 while allowing one run in a combined three innings.

Detroit designated hitter Victor Martinez closed out his career with an infield single in the Tigers' 5-4 win Saturday. Martinez, 39, announced Friday that Saturday's game would be his last.

Tigers second baseman Niko Goodrum returned to the lineup after being sidelined since Sept. 12 with a quad contusion. He had three hits, a run scored and two RBIs.
