Last-place Detroit Tigers face uncertain future

DETROIT (AP) The run atop the AL Central was going to end at some point for the Detroit Tigers. This was an ugly way for it to happen.

There was no down-to-the-wire division race, no chase to the finish. Instead, the Tigers finished last with their worst record (74-87) since 2008.

Detroit was unable to overcome injuries to its core of Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander and Victor Martinez. And after four straight AL Central titles, the Tigers ended up sellers at the July 31 trade deadline, dealing David Price, Yoenis Cespedes and Joakim Soria.
