Tigers Set To Host the Yanks

After a day off, the Tigers host the New York Yankees in a three-game series beginning tonight at Comerica Park.

Matt Boyd is set to get the start in the opener for Detroit against New York's Masahiro Tanaka who is returning to the rotation after a stint on the disabled list with arm fatigue.  

The Tigers are 54-69 this season, in fourth place in the Central and 9.5 games out of the final Wild Card spot.  

The Yankees have a 66-57 record, good for second place in the AL East and are holding the first spot in the AL Wild Card.
