GLOVE STORY: Is Miguel Cabrera better when he plays first base? ‘It doesn’t matter’

IN THE OF: Why ‘being myself’ is Daz Cameron‘s goal for latest opportunity


Probable starting pitchers: Tigers RHP Casey Mize (7-8, 3.64 ERA) vs. Royals RHP Carlos Hernandez (6-2, 3.90 ERA).

Game notes: The Tigers are four games under .500 with 10 to play: three this weekend against the Royals, a makeup game Monday against the Chicago White Sox, three on the road against the Minnesota Twins next week and a three-game finale against the White Sox in Chicago next weekend. On Friday, it’ll be a party in the stands for Miguel Cabrera as the Tigers honor him for homer No. 500 from last month; he’s still 21 hits away from No. 3,000, which means he won’t get there today despite hitting .321 this month. Tonight should also feature a short start from Casey Mize, on a limited pitch count for the rest of the season, which could be a good thing; few teams have tagged Mize as well as the Royals, who have scored 16 runs over 28⅓ innings off the rookie this year.

Tigers lineup:

LF Akil Baddoo

1B Jonathan Schoop

RF Robbie Grossman

DH Miguel Cabrera

3B Jeimer Candelario

2B Harold Castro

C Eric Haase

SS Niko Goodrum

CF Victor Reyes
