Tigers host Royals in crucial stretch of schedule

DETROIT -- Michael Fulmer hates the thought of the Detroit Tigers' front office selling off veteran players at the trade deadline. He knows the only way to avoid that scenario is a hot streak, and he hopes to contribute to that Thursday afternoon.

The Tigers' second-year right-hander will oppose Kansas City Royals rookie Jakob Junis in the finale of the three-game series. The American League Central Division rivals split the first two games.

Tigers general manager Al Avila said last week in the midst of an eight-game losing streak that he is willing to listen to any trade offers.
