Tigers' Fulmer opposes Royals' Duffy

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals will close out their four-game series Thursday with a premier pitching matchup.

Right-hander Michael Fulmer, the 2016 American League Rookie of the Year and a plumber in Oklahoma during the offseason, will start for the Tigers.

The Royals will counter with left-hander Danny Duffy, who missed five weeks with an oblique strain before returning just prior to the All-Star break. Duffy has held left-handed hitters to a .188 batting average this season.
