The Tigers begin the second half of the 2013 campaign tonight with the first of a three game series against the Royals in Kansas City. Anibal Sanchez is slated to make his third start for Detroit since a stint on the disabled list with shoulder stiffness. Kansas City sends Ervin Santana to the hill. Second baseman Omar Infante is eligible to come off the 15 day disabled list for tonight's game, but may need more time to let his sprained ankle heal before returning to action. The Tigers are a game-and-a-half ahead of the Indians for top spot in the Central Division.
