News
Norris gave up two earned runs on six hits and two walks over 5.2 innings in a Saturday no-decision versus the Royals. He struck out six.

He was in line for the victory until the the normally reliable Francisco Rodriguez imploded in the ninth and gave up five runs to the Royals. Norris fired 64 of 100 pitches for strikes while also notching an impressive 16 swinging strikes during his time on the mound. The 23-year-old has put together a string of solid starts since his return to the major league club on Aug. 9, pitching at least five innings and giving up no more than three earned runs in his nine appearances over that span. Norris will try to wrap up his season in positive fashion when he takes on the Indians next Thursday.

Martinez went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Royals.

The slugging outfielder brought home Cameron Maybin with both of his run-scoring hits, plating him to tie the score at 1-1 in the third and then driving him in to extend the Tigers' lead to 4-2 in the sixth. Martinez has three RBI over the last two games and is now hitting .269 (21-for-78) with three doubles, two homers and 11 RBI in September.

Maybin went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles and two runs in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Royals.

The outfielder's line is up to .321/.388/.424 following Saturday's production, which also marked the fifth consecutive game in which he's hit safely. Maybin has multi-hit efforts in four of those contests, and has driven in two runs apiece over the first pair of games against the Royals. Despite appearing in only 86 games to date this season, Maybin is now just two RBI from equaling the second-best total of his career in that category, which he established over 147 contests with the Padres in 2012.

News
Upton hit his 26th home run of the season in the seventh inning during Game 1 of Thursday's Tigers doubleheader.

Insert more fire emojis here. The blast was his fourth in five days, seventh of the month (plus a .942 September OPS), and 16th since the All-Star break. He's matched his bomb total from last year and finally looks like the top-50 draft pick mixed leaguers expected but didn't get for most of this past season.

News
Farmer will start Monday's series opener against the Indians, Matthew Mowery of the Oakland Press reports.

This was fully expected after Farmer's last outing was shortened by rain after just 2.2 innings and wiped from the books. Farmer has a 3.96 ERA and 93:28 K:BB over 20 Triple-A starts (100 innings) this year, but has been solely used out of the bullpen in the big leagues. He will make the start on normal rest, but is not guaranteed of another start before the season ends. It's possible that he could start Saturday against the Braves, but if Jordan Zimmermann gets his mechanics straightened out in time, that would be his start.

Iglesias (hand) is in the lineup Saturday against the Royals.

Iglesias took a throw off of his right hand Friday afternoon, forcing him to depart the game early and undergo X-rays. With the results returning negative, Iglesias has been cleared to return to action, and he'll start at his usual shortstop spot Saturday looking to extend his five-game hitting streak.

Rodriguez (3-4) uncharacteristically fell apart in the ninth inning Saturday against the Royals, giving up five earned runs on four hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning. He also recorded a strikeout.

The veteran closer blew his fifth save of the season by giving up five runs on a two-RBI double to Paulo Orlando and a go-ahead three-run homer to Eric Hosmer. Rodriguez had posted five straight scoreless outings and converted seven consecutive save opportunities before Saturday's outing. He's now 44-for-49 in save chances on the season.

The leadoff man did a solid job of setting the table Saturday, getting on base four times and posting his second consecutive multi-hit effort. Kinsler is closing out the season in strong fashion, now hitting .344 (21-for-61) in September with six multi-hit outings overall.

Martinez hit a three-run home run as a pinch hitter in Game 1 of the Tigers' doubleheader Thursday.

The blast off Michael Tonkin was V-Mart's 25th of the year. Concerns about his right knee, which had been plunked twice in three days as of Sunday, look to be alleviated. He's in the lineup as designated hitter for Game 2 of the twin bill Thursday night. Martinez boasts a .288/.347/.472 triple slash for 2016.

Zimmermann will throw another simulated game Monday, MLive's Evan Woodbery reports.

This will be his second simulated game, and it rules him out from starting a game early next week. However, he could still return to start next Saturday in Atlanta if everything were to go smoothly during Monday's sim game. The Tigers continue to work on getting his mechanics straightened out, which is why he continues to work on the side, as he is supposedly healthy.

He hit a 400-foot home run off live pitching in rehab at-bats Saturday in Florida, and could play in the Instructional League on Monday. This suggests that a return in the middle of next week is on the table.

News
Sanchez logged five innings Thursday in Game 1 of the Tigers' doubleheader, allowing just one run on two hits and a walk with four strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.

He did allow one home run -- the major flaw throughout his career -- but half of the batted-balls he yielded were grounders. Buck Farmer had taken Sanchez's rotation spot Wednesday, but maybe this will help the veteran work back into Detroit's good graces. With such little time left in the regular season, however, that may not matter much to many fantasy players. Despite an impressive 8.06 K/9 and 1.84 BB/9 after the All-Star break, Sanchez holds an atrocious 5.90 ERA on the year. The 32-year-old has one season left on his deal with Detroit yet might not crack the starting five next year.

News
Verlander set down 11 hitters on strikes while allowing two runs on four hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Twins.

Verlander's 15th win of 2016 was actually his first in nearly a month, dating back to Aug. 26; the fault for that lies more with the Tigers' offense than with the 33-year-old fireballer. Indeed, despite having blown past his previous career high in homers allowed (24) with a whopping 30 this year, Verlander's had a great year by virtually every other metric. His strikeout rate has rebounded unbelievably from a disappointing past couple years -- in fact, his current 9.89 K/9 is the second-highest of his career. That's why even with all the long balls, he owns his best ERA (3.21) since 2012 and his best WHIP (1.01) since 2011.
