The Tigers have had an off season to reflect on what could of been last season especially at the American League Championship Series against the Rangers. So they went out and acquired Prince Fielder one of the top sluggers in the Majors. Detroit opens up the 2012 season at Comerica Park against the Boston Red Sox.

Justin Verlander coming of an incredible season (24-5) (the defending AL MVP) opposing lefty Jon Lester (15-9). Detroit's using s four man rotation led by Verlander then Righties Doug Fister and Max Scherzer, followed by Rick Porcello. The Tigers bullpen is as strong as it has been in years led by closer Jose Valverde who had 50 saves last season. Reliever Phil Coke anchors with Joaquin Benoit to be one of the strongest bullpen in the majors.

With over 20-wins in Grapefruit League play, Manager Jim Leyland has his team all set roster wise and with excellent position players. The early part of the schedule is pretty tough with the Red Sox and Rays in Detroit then games against A.L. Central rival White Sox.
