3B Miguel Cabrera
1B Prince Fielder (2007, 2009, 2011-2012)
The Tigers shocked the baseball world last offseason when they signed Fielder to a nine-year, $214 million deal following the season-ending injury to Victor Martinez.
Lost behind Miguel Cabrera's Triple Crown season was a terrific year from Fielder. He hit a career-best .313 with 30 home runs and 108 RBI. He should continue to be one of the league's best run-producers and a worthy All-Star.
3B Miguel Cabrera (2004-2007, 2010-2012)
The 2012 AL MVP and Triple Crown winner, Cabrera was actually beaten out for the All-Star start last season by Adrian Beltre.
After all of the media attention his Triple Crown push got last season, expect Cabrera to come out on top in the voting this season and for a number of seasons to come.
CF Austin Jackson (No All-Star Appearances)
Despite missing nearly a month from mid-May to early June, Jackson still turned in a breakout season. In raising his on-base percentage from .317 to .377, he become a true leadoff hitter and great table-setter.
Entering his fourth season in the majors, Jackson will be 26 years old and is just entering the prime of his career, so he may even take another step forward in 2013.
SP Justin Verlander (2007, 2009-2012)
Arguably the top pitcher in the game today, Verlander won the Cy Young and MVP awards in 2011 and finished a close second to David Price for the Cy Young this past season.
A workhorse and true staff ace, Verlander is still in the prime of his career. He gives the Tigers a serious chance to win every time he takes the mound.
SP Max Scherzer (No All-Star Appearances)
Since coming over from the Diamondbacks in a three-team trade prior to the 2010 season, Scherzer has gone 43-27 with a 3.89 ERA.
He took a step forward last season and pitched like a front-line starter, going 16-7 with a 3.74 ERA and a league-leading 11.1 K/9. The 28-year-old should continue his ascent to the ranks of the game's best this coming year as a second ace alongside Verlander.
