Complete Detroit Tigers 2014 Season Preview
David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Tigers have been among the cream of the American League crop for the past three seasons now, sandwiching an AL pennant in 2012 with a pair of ALCS trips. They were knocked out of the ALCS in six games by the Boston Red Sox last year, and they will be looking to make another deep postseason run in 2014.

It was a somewhat strange offseason for a team in win-now mode, as they traded slugger Prince Fielder and No. 4 starter Doug Fister with an eye on saving money for future extensions for Miguel Cabrera and Max Scherzer.

They added a good deal as well, though, picking up Ian Kinsler in the Fielder trade and signing All-Star closer Joe Nathan to anchor their bullpen. If nothing else, they look to be a much faster team and an improved team defensively, and that could be exactly what new manager Brad Ausmus is looking for out of his club.

They have been bit hard by the injury bug this spring, leaving them scraping to fill holes at shortstop, in left field and in the eighth inning, but they still look like a dangerous team.

With all of that in mind, here is a complete preview of the 2014 Detroit Tigers, everything you need to know for the season ahead.
