The 25-man roster is something of a mess right now. Zach McAllister is on the DL, although he may not be injured. Justin Masterson is starting on 3-days rest. The bullpen is being swapped out seemingly on a daily basis. T.J. House is back before the 10-day limit because of the "injury" to McAllister. Nyjer Morgan was transferred from the 15- to the 60-day DL.

Pretty sure these words have all been spoken before:

The Tigers lost to Yu Darvish and the Rangers this afternoon! 9 to 2!
