The Tigers announced this morning that Rick Porcello will NOT start as scheduled tonight in Miami against the Marlins.
But what does this really mean?
Speculation is that Porcello will not be named a starter in the postseason. Instead, like in the 2012 postseason, Porcello may be in the bullpen.
As a starter, Porcello has been hot lately, winning his last three starts and five of his last six.
The Tigers also say that, as scheduled, Anibal Sanchez will start on Saturday with Justin Verlander starting on Sunday.
