Tigers-Twins Preview 9-28-12

(AP) — One reason the Detroit Tigers are in position to win the AL Central is Max Scherzer’s dominance. Now it’s uncertain if he’ll be able to help them finish the job.

Forced to scratch one of the AL’s hottest hurlers from his scheduled start Friday night, the visiting Tigers turn to rookie Drew Smyly as their quest for a second straight division title continues against the Minnesota Twins.

A lingering shoulder problem prompted Detroit (84-72) to announce Thursday that Scherzer won’t start the opener of this three-game set. The injury diminished his velocity Sunday, when Minnesota dealt the right-hander his first loss since July 30.
