Detroit’s Zimmermann, Stewart have core muscle surgery
DETROIT (AP) — Tigers right-hander Jordan Zimmermann and outfielder Christin Stewart had core muscle repair surgery Thursday but are expected to be ready for spring training.
The Tigers said the operations took place in Philadelphia and were performed by Dr. William Meyers.
Zimmermann went 7-8 with a 4.52 ERA in 25 starts this season.
Stewart had 2 homers, 6 RBIs as Tigers beat Royals 11-8
DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire watched Christin Stewart put on a show in batting practice and thought his rookie slugger might have a big night.
Gardenhire got even more than he expected.
Stewart hit his first career homer in the first inning, hit another home run in the second inning and drew a bases-loaded walk in the seventh as the Tigers beat the Kansas City Royals 11-8 on Thursday night.

Rays’ Faria sparkles against Tigers in final tuneup
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Jake Faria couldn't think of a better way to finish what's been a mostly frustrating spring for the young Tampa Bay Rays right-hander.
The 24-year-old pitcher no-hit the Detroit Tigers for six innings on Tuesday, exiting his final tuneup for the regular season confident his performance is trending in the right direction.
Clearwater, Fla. — Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire has been champing at the bit to get a look at Tigers outfield prospect Christin Stewart. He and some of his coaches had lobbied for the slugger to get a big-league camp invite — to no avail.
So, when he saw Stewart's name on the list of minor leaguers invited to play Thursday against the Phillies, he jumped at it.
"When I saw he was coming over, I definitely made a spot for him," he said. "Just to see him."
Tampa, Fla. — This is one way to prove you belong.
Work your way into a couple of early Grapefruit League games. Lash a pair of singles. Draw a walk. Toss in a deep, opposite-field sacrifice fly to the warning track in left.
Should he keep this up once he arrives at Triple-A Toledo in a month, Christin Stewart will imply that maybe he should see Comerica Park in 2018, perhaps earlier than September, which is when the Tigers ideally want him in Detroit.
