  • Avila makes first start of season
  • Cabrera's streak vs. Hochevar ends
  • Tigers optimistic about Crosby


KANSAS CITY -- It probably caught a lot of Tigers fans by surprise, but with Rick Porcello beginning his second big league season at age 21 and no starters older than 28, Detroit opened the 2010 season with the youngest rotation in the Majors, according to STATS LLC.

With Porcello, 25-year-old Max Scherzer, 27-year-olds Justin Verlander and Jeremy Bonderman and 28-year-old Dontrelle Willis, the Tigers starters average 25.6 years old. It's odd to think about, considering how many seasons Bonderman and Willis have pitched, but they both made their Major League debuts at age 20 in 2003.

The Tampa Bay Rays have the game's second-youngest rotation with an average of 26.2 years of age.
