Note: This game will be shown on FS Detroit Plus due to the Wings-Sharks playoff game.

Dontrelle Willis will look to build on his best start in nearly a calendar year. Last time out, also against the Twins, he went six scoreless innings and allowed just four hits and two walks.

Nick Blackburn has struggled a bit this season and enters the game with a 6.85 ERA. He allowed 10 runs during his last two appearances, both against the Royals. He hasn't met the Tigers yet this year.

You've probably read this by now, but just in case: Austin Jackson was named the American League rookie of the month for April.
