Drew Smyly's return to the rotation was an inauspicious one.
Albert Pujols is quietly closing in on 500 home runs.
Miguel Cabrera reached another milestone in powerful fashion: a four-hit day highlighted by a home run for his 2,000th hit.
Brad Ausmus is hoping he'll have a chance to use every position player on his roster before too long - no sense letting backups become rusty at the beginning of the season.
Joe Nathan allowed four runs while only getting one out in the ninth inning as the Miami Marlins rallied for an 8-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.
Jacob Turner allowed one run in four innings to help his chances of earning a spot in the Miami starting rotation, and the Marlins beat the Detroit Tigers 4-2 on Thursday.
Drew Smyly pitched three scoreless innings and struck out three in the Detroit Tigers' 3-2 loss to the New York Mets on Saturday.
Jhonny Peralta homered twice against his former team, going deep in his only plate appearances Monday in the St. Louis Cardinals' 8-5 loss to the Detroit Tigers.

The bump on Doug Fister's head from a hard line drive was much less of a concern for the Detroit Tigers' pitcher than the 2-0 hole his team needs to climb out of in the World Series.
"I felt pretty good, I just couldn't put anyone away," Smyly said. "Any time I'd get ahead of someone, they would keep fouling off pitches and working the count, and then they'd find something they could hit. That's a really good lineup, and they hammered everything I left over the plate."
Smyly said he was amused.
