Davidson, Abreu homer as White Sox hold off Tigers, 6-5

Abreu is hitting .336 with 17 homers in 84 games against the Tigers in his career, while Davidson is at .370 with seven homers in 23 games.

Tigers put Candelario on DL with wrist issue

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — It was hot on the field, and Jordan Zimmermann had been sick for two days. And still the Royals were no match for the Tigers right-hander.
Zimmermann allowed two hits over five scoreless innings, Nicholas Castellanos had three extra-base hits and Detroit beat Kansas City 3-2 on Saturday.
Zimmermann (2-0) improved to 4-0 with a 1.48 ERA in seven appearances, including six starts, against the Royals. This shut-down performance came while battling flu-like symptoms.
Pittsburgh — Rain can be a pain.
So, too, can cold, and snow, and all the other elements Mother Nature has tossed at the Tigers in 2018.

Cleveland — Experience gained.
It's one of the primary aims of this season for the rebuilding Tigers, and left-hander Daniel Norris got a fistful of experience Wednesday night.
He was cold-called into the game after seven pitches when starter Jordan Zimmermann was felled by a line drive to the face.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Detroit Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann is expected to make his next start after being hit on the jaw by a line drive against the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.
Zimmermann said Thursday that the swelling in his jaw had gone down and he didn't have a headache, and he planned on beginning his usual routine between starts. The right-hander's next scheduled start would be Tuesday against Baltimore.
Cleveland — This is Doug Teter's first full season as the Tigers' head trainer, but he handled a tough situation Wednesday night like a seasoned vet.
"Teeter did a really nice job calming everything down," Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He handled it very well."
Tigers’ Zimmermann bruises jaw when hit by Kipnis’ liner
CLEVELAND (AP) — Jordan Zimmermann was back in Detroit's clubhouse a few hours after being hit in the face by Jason Kipnis' line drive in the first inning of Wednesday night's 5-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians and felt fortunate to come away with only a bruised jaw.
"Obviously it could've been worse," Zimmermann said. "It could've been a break, but it still didn't really feel that great. I'm sure it'll be worse tomorrow. I'll be good to go next time around."
Cleveland — It started with starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann taking a line drive off his face and ended, for all intents and purposes, with a flurry of fourth-inning singles.
The Cleveland Indians continue to demonstrate the difference between contender and rebuilder, taking the third straight game from the Tigers Wednesday, 5-1.
Cleveland – Detroit Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann left Wednesday night's game in the first inning after he was struck on the right side of his face by a line drive from the Indians' Jason Kipnis.
It was Zimmermann's seventh pitch, a 91-mph fastball, and it left Kipnis' bat at 105.6 mph. It struck Zimmermann directly and he fell to the ground.
After being tended to by trainer Doug Teeter, Zimmermann got up and walked off on his own power. He didn't appear to be bleeding but a lump was visible.
Tigers, Pirates must move on from last year’s aces
DETROIT (AP) — For a decade, opening day for the Detroit Tigers belonged almost exclusively to Justin Verlander.
Times have changed.
Verlander is with Houston now, and Detroit is set to start Jordan Zimmermann in Thursday's opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It's a nice honor for Zimmermann, who has battled injuries and ineffectiveness during two seasons with the Tigers.
Here was the Tigers' roster four years ago, in 2014, when they piled into a charter jet headed for Detroit and for Opening Day against the Royals at Comerica Park.
The starting rotation was Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Rick Porcello, Anibal Sanchez and Drew Smyly.
