I am a fan of all Detroit sports and LOVE to write about them!

On Saturday at TigerFest, manager Brad Ausmus announced that Justin Verlander will be the Detroit Tigers Opening Day starting pitcher. The Tigers first game will be played on April 3rd in Chicago against the White Sox.

Ausmus said the rest of the rotation was yet to be determined.

Verlander was great for the Tigers in 2016, going 16-9 with a 3.04 ERA in 34 starts. On the season, he struck out a league-best 254 batters and was voted 2nd place for the American League Cy Young award, behind former Tigers pitcher, Rick Porcello.
