With a major move at the trade deadline, the Detroit Tigers now have the last three AL Cy Young Award recipients in their rotation. One part of that trio, Justin Verlander, hasn’t pitched much like a Cy Young winner this season but has done enough to add to his sterling interleague record. Verlander will seek to run his win streak over the NL to 14 games Friday night versus the lowly Colorado Rockies while delivering a boost to the slumping AL Central leaders. Detroit (58-47) acquired David Price from Tampa Bay in a three-team deal Thursday while sending Austin Jackson to Seattle and Drew Smyly along with minor leaguer Willy Adames to the Rays.

Right-hander Rick Porcello might be merely the No. 3 starter for the Detroit Tigers, but he continues to make a sound case for being included in the list of the majors’ top pitchers. Porcello exhibited his talent and dependability Sunday against the Los Angeles Angels, who have one of the American League’s most productive lineups. In seven innings, Porcello generated 11 groundouts and collected six strikeouts while conceding just five hits, an unearned run and no walks. He wound up with a no-decision in the Tigers’ 2-1 loss.

Jason Lane’s path back to the majors after a six-year hiatus has been rather interesting, going from hitting 20-plus homers in a season as a position player during his first stint to earning his way back as a pitcher. With Ian Kennedy injured, the San Diego Padres will make Lane the oldest pitcher in seven years to make his first major league start as he faces the Atlanta Braves on Monday night at Turner Field. Lane played as an outfielder for Houston and San Diego from 2002-07, hitting .267 with 26 homers and 78 RBIs in 145 games during his best season in 2005 with the Astros. The left-hander signed minor league contracts with eight different teams beginning in 2008 and eventually converted to a pitcher’s role.

All season long, Matt Shoemaker has been jockeying for a permanent spot in the Los Angeles Angels’ rotation after making the opening-day roster as a reliever. Shoemaker combined with two relievers on a four-hitter, and Efren Navarro connected off Justin Verlander for his first major league homer to help the Angels beat the Detroit Tigers 4-0 Saturday night. The only hits off the right-hander were Ian Kinsler’s first-inning double and singles by Eugenio Suarez and Austin Jackson. Verlander (9-9) allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings with four strikeouts and a walk.
