Following today's doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Detroit Tigers will hit the road for a 4-game set against the Houston Astros.
The Tigers have released their pitching rotation (at least most of it) and as you can see below, Tarik Skubal will get things started on Thursday with Beau Brieske going on Friday and Eduardo Rodriguez toeing the rubber on Saturday.
Sunday's starter has not yet been named.
Unfortunately (or maybe not), the Tigers will not get to face their former ace, Justin Verlander, as he is starting tonight's game for the Astros.

Skyy Moore to the Chiefs: Can Moore Take Advantage of the Stellar Landing Spot?
Skyy Moore had a draft position over/under of 35.5 on FanDuel Sportsbook. He ended up falling way past that — going 54th overall — but the landing spot couldn't have been better for his fantasy prospects as he went to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Moore was a production monster at Western Michigan. In his final season, he posted a 39.5% target share, which ranks in the 99th percentile, per PlayerProfiler. He also recorded a 90th-percentile college dominator rating. That final campaign resulted in a 94-catch, 1,283-yard season in which Moore scored 10 times.
Will Moore make a big impact right away in Kansas City?
numberFire's Brandon Gdula breaks down Moore's profile and gives a top comparison.
“Skyy Moore's profile overlaps a lot with Andy Isabella.”@gdula13 thinks the Chiefs drafted a WR with plenty of tools to offer in the NFL #ChiefsKingdom | #NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/GLQo1eIWH3

Gdula's draft database has found these 10 prior prospects to have the most similar statistical profiles to Moore’s. Keep in mind that these are based not on play style or traits but age, athleticism, draft equity, experience, efficiency, and production.
|Rank||Skyy Moore Profile Comparisons||Similarity|
Gdula's Take: One of my favorite receiver prospects in the class, Moore produced well when adjusting his production for opponents faced. His market share data is elite, which helps overcome the small frame (5'10”, 195 pounds) concerns. He can play and should offer a floor for an NFL team.
