David Wright Jersey , the Detroit Tigers are working on the long view.The Astros are positioning themselves for postseason play as September winds down. The Tigers hope the remainder of this year plus 2019 help Detroit return to contender status after launching its rebuild in July and August 2017.Justin Verlander (15-9), traded from Detroit to Houston last Aug. 31 as part of the retooling, won his 20th regular-season game for the Astros since the deal on Monday night. Houston defeated Detroit 3-2, with Verlander fanning 10 in seven innings of six-hit pitching.Article continues below ...Christin Stewart, potentially a major part of the Tigers’ future, made his first major league start, in left field, and collected his first major league hit, a single to right in the sixth inning.Right-hander Jordan Zimmermann (7-6, 4.03 ERA) starts for Detroit against Houston on Tuesday night. Zimmermann owns a 2-3 record with a 3.09 ERA in seven starts against the Astros in his career , but this is his first start against them this year.Rookie left-hander Framber Valdez (3-1, 1.37 ERA) will make his first career start against Detroit. Valdez will make his fifth appearance and fourth start of his career for Houston.Valdez has gone at least four innings and allowed just one run or less in each of his first four games. His team has won eight of its last nine and is 15-4 in its last 19 games.Houston has the future in mind with one of those pieces being rookie right-hander Josh James, who has made one start and one solid relief appearance.Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Monday that James will work out of the bullpen against Detroit, but he is “not giving up hope” that the rookie can make another start in the team’s final games. James has a triple-digit fastall with a changeup and slider. He has made one start and one relief appearance.“I think the intriguing part for him is it’s really hard to hit that kind of velocity and that kind of plus secondary stuff out of the pen,” Hinch said. “If you get one look at him, it’s very dynamic. He could still start and have a very quality start if we choose to do that. But the intriguing part is how velocity plays in September and potentially October.”He was solid in relief Saturday at Boston and Hinch might see how that works out the remainder of the year.“He looked like a reliever and a guy who could be relied on to face a really good lineup in really big innings,” Hinch said. “That kind of strike-throwing, that kind of demeanor and poise, he looks like a weapon.”Detroit announced the callup of two pitchers — right-hander Spencer Turnbull and southpaw Matt Hall — and will activate both and announce before Tuesday’s game how the two will be used the remainder of the month.A 40-man roster move must be made for Hall and it’s possible shortstop Jose Iglesias will be shifted from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day DL if the results of an examination Tuesday in Philadelphia determine he cannot effectively return this season.Iglesias, a free agent at the end of the season Mookie Wilson Jersey , has a lower abdominal issue that put him out of action Aug. 30. His discomfort level is such that he hasn’t been able to do anything baseball related yet.“He’s got stuff,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said of Turnbull, who has four solid pitches and likely will become part of a six-man rotation later in the week.“He could go both ways (starting or relieving),” Gardenhire said of Hall, who has a dynamic curveball with an 88-91 fastball he has to spot to be effective, which he has done this year. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies‘ acquisition of Asdrubal Cabrera last month didn’t draw much attention. The bigger story, it seemed, was the organization’s decision not to part with key prospects to make a big splash at the trade deadline.Cabrera, though, has showed in the past couple of days that he may be the needed bat to help propel the youngest team in the majors to an unlikely division title.Cabrera hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the eighth inning and the surging Phillies completed a four-game sweep of the Miami Marlins with a 5-3 victory Sunday.“He just looks like a guy that’s been there and done that ,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said of the 32-year-old switch-hitter. “The big situation seems like it fits him very well.”Cabrera, acquired in a July 27 trade with the New York Mets, crushed a 2-0 cutter from Drew Steckenrider (3-2) into the second deck in right field for his 20th homer and his second in as many days.“When you do something like I did today to help the team win, you feel good,” Cabrera said.Pat Nehsek (1-0) pitched a perfect eighth and Tommy Hunter worked the ninth for his second save as the Phillies overcame a mediocre outing from Aaron Nola for their fifth straight win. Philadelphia improved to an NL-best 38-18 at home and maintained its 1½-game lead over Atlanta atop the NL East.“What I see from this team is they fight every inning,” Cabrera said. “They never put their head down.”Derek Dietrich hit a two-run home run off Nola and Justin Bour tied it with a solo shot off Seranthony Dominguez in a three-run seventh for the Marlins, who have dropped six straight and 10 of 13.“When we needed a big out or a big hit this series, we weren’t able to do it,” Miami manager Don Mattingly said. “I think we’re better than this.”The Phillies took a 3-0 lead on Odubel Herrera’s two-run single and Maikel Franco’s RBI single in the sixth.On a 90-degree day in which the Phillies’ 2008 World Series-winning team was honored, Nola didn’t have his best stuff and was lifted after Dietrich’s 14th homer with no outs. Nola allowed seven hits and two walks while striking out two as he was denied his 13th win.“It was a grind for me Gary Carter Jersey ,” Nola said.Marlins starter Dan Straily surrendered only one hit but was replaced after 5 1/3 innings following five walks and a hit batter that pushed his pitch count to 103. Herrera and Franco then delivered ground singles off lefty Adam Conley.TRAINER’S ROOMPhillies: SS J.P. Crawford (broken left hand) had a scheduled day off in his rehab. He’s set to play full games Monday and Tuesday for Class A Clearwater. . RHP Pedro Florimon (broken right foot) said he was pain-free after a morning workout while wearing a brace.CHEERING 2008Jayson Werth acknowledged that the “elephant in the room” was how he’d be greeted during the 10-year reunion of Philadelphia’s last World Series title. Werth went from hero to villain after leaving for divisional rival Washington.Werth was cheered and later rode with the Phillie Phanatic in his four-wheeler.Ryan Howard, Brad Lidge, Jamie Moyer and Jimmy Rollins also attended.HARPER & PHILLYWerth was asked what he’d tell former Nationals teammate Bryce Harper if the impending free agent inquired about the Phillies.“I think he’s already asked me about Philadelphia,” Werth said.After joking it would be tampering if he revealed what he told him, Werth relented.“It’s a great place to hit. I’ve always loved hitting here,” Werth said. “I think I’ve shared that with him, among other things about this place.”HANDICAPPING WITH MATTINGLYAfter playing the Nationals, Braves and Phillies in consecutive series, Mattingly was asked to size up the NL East race. He believes the Phillies have a better rotation than the Braves but thinks the inconsistent Nationals are the most talented and “most capable of getting on a run.”UP NEXTMarlins: LHP Wei-Yin Chen (3-8, 5.86 ERA) was pushed back a day to start Monday night at Marlins Park against St. Louis RHP Luke Weaver (6-9 Dwight Gooden Jersey , 4.75). And for good reason. Chen’s home ERA is 2.18, compared with 10.27 on the road. “We’re not going to try to explain it,” Mattingly said. “We’re going to try to ride it.”Phillies: RHP Jake Arrieta (9-6, 3.32) starts Monday night against Arizona RHP Zack Godley (12-6, 4.46) in a matchup of division leaders that kicks off a six-game trip.
