Tigers could have plenty of options for rotation

DETROIT (AP) Justin Verlander is set to start another opening day for the Detroit Tigers.

The rest of the rotation is a little less clear, but manager Brad Ausmus is hoping he'll have plenty of options.

Ausmus saw no reason to hold back on announcing that Verlander would start the opener. The Detroit ace is in line to start opening day for the ninth time in 10 years, and for Ausmus, slotting Verlander at No. 1 is the easy part. The fourth-year manager revealed that when asked how many spots in the rotation might still be up for grabs.
