Tigers update

One of the preseason favorites to reach the World Series, Detroit appears to be playing out the string. The Tigers had lost three straight games before beating Toronto yesterday. Detroit is 4-9 in August and 12-15 since the All-Star break. That stretch includes splitting a four-game series with the Orioles at Camden Yards. Injuries continue to mount. Third baseman Carlos Guillen (back) and outfielder Marcus Thames (shoulder) are day-to-day. Reliever Todd Jones (shoulder) is expected to come off the disabled list for today's series opener. The Tigers' bullpen has blown 21 of 44 save opportunities.
