Royals-Tigers Preview

(AP) -- Justin Verlander lost his status as the unquestioned ace of the Detroit Tigers through a combination of Max Scherzer's emergence, the arrival of David Price and his own regression.

Scherzer and Price are now gone, and Verlander's last two outings have given the Tigers hope that he's rediscovering his past form.

The right-hander seeks his 20th win over the AL-best Kansas City Royals in the opener of a three-game series Tuesday night in Detroit.
