DETROIT (AP) - After winning the American League pennant in 2012 but losing the World Series in four straight games, the Detroit Tigers are ready to try to take that elusive final step.
The Tigers are led again by a collection of stars that would make pretty much any team envious. Right-hander Justin Verlander was the AL MVP two years ago, and slugger Miguel Cabrera was voted MVP last season after becoming baseball's first Triple Crown winner in 45 years.
They were both at Comerica Park on Thursday to kick off the team's winter caravan.
In addition to Verlander and Cabrera, Detroit also welcomes slugger Prince Fielder back for his second year with the team, and designated hitter Victor Martinez returns after missing all of 2012 with a knee injury.
