5/23/2018 @ OAKLAND  
5/24/2018 @ OAKLAND  
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.
SEATTLE: 2017: 78-84, tied for third place.
MANAGER: Scott Servais (third season).
ADDITIONS: CF Dee Gordon, 1B Ryon Healy, RHP Juan Nicasio, INF-OF Andrew Romine, OF Ichiro Suzuki, LHP Dario Alvarez.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B Yonder Alonso, OF Jarrod Dyson, LHP Drew Smyly, 1B Danny Valencia, C Carlos Ruiz, RHP Yovani Gallardo, RHP Emilio Pagan.
OUTLOOK: The Mariners' odd place in the AL was only amplified by what happened to them in spring training. Injuries illustrated the slim margin they have if they plan to contend for a playoff spot. They're talented enough to compete for a wild card, but probably not good enough to catch the Astros in the division. Pitching will be the key. Seattle used a major league-record 40 pitchers last year and would like to avoid a repeat performance. The bullpen has promise, putting pressure on the rotation to stabilize and get deep enough into games. Right-handed reliever David Phelps needs Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire season, though. Offensively, the top of the lineup has a chance to be potent with the addition of a speedster in Gordon. Healy missed most of spring training after hand surgery, but if he's productive Seattle could end up fielding its deepest lineup in years. That might be necessary with all the pitching questions.
Boyd takes mound for Tigers against hometown Mariners

Matthew Boyd grew up on Mercer Island, just across the bridge from Safeco Field. He idolized Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr.

So Thursday night's start will be more special than most for the Detroit Tigers left-hander, who will get to take the mound in his hometown of Seattle for the first time against the Mariners.

Boyd will start the series opener against Seattle left-hander Marco Gonzales.

It will be a rematch of the first game of last Saturday's doubleheader in Detroit. Boyd pitched six-plus innings and Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer as the Tigers won 4-3.

Boyd retired Seattle's first eight batters in order and held the Mariners to one hit through the first four scoreless innings.

"He's got good stuff and he knows how to use it," Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said of Boyd after the game. "That's a great hitting team."

Boyd, who was the state's co-player of the year while at Eastside Catholic High School, is 2-3 with a 3.21 ERA in seven starts this season. Five of those have been quality starts, including his last time out when he allowed three runs on three hits with three walks and six strikeouts.

"He commands all of his pitches and he can throw them at any time, so they can't sit on one thing," Gardenhire said earlier this season. "If he gets behind in the count, he can still flip a slow curve over, flip a slow change over. He did what he was supposed to do -- screw up their timing."

Boyd, 27, who went 6-11 with a 5.27 ERA last season, seems to have come into his own this year. That's due in part to his work with new pitching coach Chris Bosio.

"(Boyd) changes speeds really well, moves his fastball around. He's bought into a lot of stuff that Boz (Bosio) has talked to him about," Detroit catcher John Hicks said. "He's been throwing the ball great."

How great? Boyd became the first Tigers left-hander to open the season with three straight starts of six-plus innings and one or fewer runs allowed since at least 1908, when records were first kept.

"I don't want to look back," Boyd said. "All I have is right now. Tomorrow, come out, prepare for the next one."

Boyd is 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA in two career appearances against the Mariners, including the one start.

While Boyd has some history with Seattle, Gonzales has some with the Tigers' organization. His father, Frank, was drafted by Detroit and spent parts of four seasons with Triple-A Toledo.

Gonzales (3-3, 5.31 ERA) made his first career appearance against the Tigers last weekend, allowing four runs on a career-high 10 hits in six innings, with two walks and three strikeouts.

"That's kind of been the theme behind a couple of my starts, being able to pitch through situations like that," Gonzales said. "I'm a contact pitcher and guys are going to be on, I'm just trying to get a ton of ground balls and some double plays in there and field my position and give us a chance to stay in the ballgame."
