KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
PREVIEW
Pirates try for second series win over Tigers
 

The Pittsburgh Pirates will look to get back to winning a series when they host the Detroit Tigers on Thursday at PNC Park.

The Pirates (13-11) broke a five-game losing streak Wednesday when they won the second game of a doubleheader 8-3. They dropped the opener 13-10, but manager Clint Hurdle predicted his club produced enough offense in the loss to get a boost for the second game.

"Some guys, I believe, were able to pick up some confidence from the way we were able to swing the bat in game one," Hurdle said.

Before the Pirates lost two recent series in a row, including being swept in four games at Philadelphia last weekend, they had won or split their first five series.

Detroit (10-12) has won six of its past nine games and can avoid losing both interleague series with Pittsburgh this season with a win Thursday. The Pirates opened the season with a three-game sweep in Detroit.

Right-hander Michael Fulmer (1-2, 3.47 ERA) is scheduled to start the series finale for Detroit against Pittsburgh right-hander Ivan Nova (2-1, 4.20).

Fulmer's only career start against Pittsburgh came during that season-opening series, in the first game of a doubleheader. He was on the losing end of a 1-0 game despite giving up the run and four hits in eight innings, with two walks and three strikeouts.

The game's only run came in the first when Fulmer issued one of his two walks and Gregory Polanco followed with an RBI liner.

"It's just tough," Fulmer said. "You get out there and you're amped up the first inning, I felt like I was hitting my spots well and just got that walk and then left a front-door sinker with too much of the plate and Gregory Polanco hit it down the line. But other than that, everything was good."

In his last time out, Fulmer recorded his second quality start but did not get a decision when he allowed two runs and eight hits, with one walk and four strikeouts, in seven innings Friday against Kansas City.

It was again the first game of a doubleheader that Detroit won in extra innings, and Fulmer had to put forth some effort to fulfill manager Ron Gardenhire's request to get deep into the game and preserve the bullpen.

"I think I was breathing out of the wrong eyelid the last two innings I threw," Fulmer joked, according to the Tigers website. "But that's baseball. They did a good job of hitting mistakes I threw, stringing some hits together.

"I still don't think that I had my best stuff, especially for all seven innings. I felt the best I have in a while, but I think if I get two or three balls down in the zone, I think everything will start clicking again."

Nova is 2-0 in his past three starts but, like Fulmer, is coming off a strong outing with a no-decision to show for it because of a lack of run support.

Nova gave up one run in six innings Friday at Philadelphia in what became a 2-1 Pittsburgh loss. The run scored on a fielder's choice.

In that game, his changeup confounded the Phillies.

"I think it was the biggest pitch of the night," Nova said. "I had a good feel for it. I didn't have the curveball working (early), but that was the one I felt comfortable throwing."
