LAKELAND, FL (WTVB) - Even though Spring Training is less than week old for the Tigers in Lakeland, Florida, new Detroit manager Brad Ausmus has a tough decision on who will take the mound on Opening Day.  Yesterday, Ausmus said the team has three legitimate possibilities in former Cy Young and MVP winner Justin Verlander, who is on track to be ready for the regular season after core muscle surgery, current Cy Young winner Max Scherzer and ERA champ Anibal Sanchez. 

The Tigers open the regular season at home when they host the Kansas City Royals on March 31st.
