Tigers-Rays Preview

(AP) -- Even when they've pitched well lately, neither Detroit's Justin Verlander nor Tampa Bay's Chris Archer can pick up a victory. It's been a whole lot longer, though, since Verlander got one.

Yet, a more interesting storyline going into Wednesday's series finale between the Tigers and Rays at Tropicana Field may be regarding who will be Archer's catcher.

Even if Curt Casali isn't, manager Kevin Cash could give him a first career start at designated hitter after the unheralded rookie homered four times through two games of this series - two off David Price in Tuesday's 10-2 win. He's started the past four days, but this matchup comes in the early afternoon following a night game.
