• A day after Leyland talked about his lineup producing too many fly balls in Monday's loss, he talked more about Kauffman Stadium as a tough place to hit for power.
"If you hit fly balls in this park, you're hitting in a graveyard, unless you're the big guy or Prince [Fielder] pulls it," he said. "They're not doing it on purpose. I'm not getting on them. I'm just making a point. This is a big place. If you're getting one out of here, you'd better pull it right down the line or you'd better really smoke it."
• The Tigers announced a special gluten-free ticket and food package for fans attending next Monday's game against the Orioles at Comerica Park. The $40 package includes an upper box infield ticket and a gluten-free meal that includes a turkey sandwich with lettuce, tomato and mayo. A $4 donation from each package will go to the Tri-County Celiac Support Group. More information is available at tigers.com/glutenfree.
