The Tigers will start a formidable rotation that happens to be entirely right-handed: Justin Verlander, Doug Fister, Anibal Sanchez and Max Scherzer. The Giants just beat the Cardinals’ all-righty rotation in the NLCS, so it’s not as if this is something new to the San Francisco hitters, but the Detroit starters have better stuff than what they saw against St. Louis. Pagan, a switch-hitting leadoff man, needs to be a tone setter for the San Francisco lineup, after posting a solid .799 OPS against righties during the regular season. - Jon Paul Morosi
