Tigers-Twins Preview

(AP) -- Justin Verlander clearly isn't the pitcher he was three years ago when he was winning the AL Cy Young and MVP awards.

Still, the Detroit Tigers would much rather have him healthy and a part of their rotation as they try to chase down first place in the Central.

Verlander will be back on the mound after missing one start Saturday in the second game of a day-night doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.
