Manager Brad Ausmus went on to say:"What else can you say about Miguel as a hitter? Eventually you run out of adjectives, I've only been here for a short period of time, and I'm already running out of words to describe him."

 

The Tigers won their first two games against Kansas City, while the final game of the series was rained out causing Detroit to push back its starting rotation for today's game, giving Anibal Snachez the start. The Tigers are 3-0 to start the season.
