Tigers' Teheran (triceps) scratched from start

Detroit Tigers starter Julio Teheran felt tightness in his right triceps while warming up for Friday's game against the Indians and was shut down as a precaution.

Akil Baddoo is already a cult hero in Detroit. He homered on the first pitch he saw in the majors in his first game, hit a grand slam in his second and hit a walk-off single in his third. He was a rule 5 pick from the Twins after having Tommy John surgery early in the 2019 season. Maybe the Tigers unearthed a gem -- exactly the kind of player a rebuilding team needs to find.
