Max Scherzer out of commission, Jim Leyland will go with a 'pitcher by committee' in season finale
Due to Max Scherzer's ankle injury, the Detroit Tigers find themselves with a 1 game hole in their starting rotation. So Jim Leyland will ask his middle relief pitchers to get the team through Wednesday's season finale.
Wednesday's game in Kansas City is meaningless in the standings; the Tigers are locked in as the 3rd playoff seed. It's only a matter of getting through game 162 healthy.
