PITCHING PREVIEW (from MLB.com)
Brad Penny (DET): Penny will make his Tigers debut hoping to duplicate the early season success he enjoyed last year in St. Louis — he posted seven straight quality starts — before a late May lat injury shelved him for the final four months.
A.J. Burnett (NYY): Burnett is being challenged to rebound from a season in which he set career highs in losses, runs allowed, earned runs, ERA and hit batsmen. He set a franchise mark for highest ERA in a season with at least 180 innings pitched.
