Keuchel returns as high-flying Astros face Tigers

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- The last thing the floundering, frustrated Detroit Tigers need right now is a series against the American League's best team.

That's the dim outlook the Tigers confront this weekend with the Houston Astros coming to Comerica Park for three games. What's more, the Astros have their ace back to start the opener of the series.

Dallas Keuchel will make his first start since June 2 on Friday when he opposes Jordan Zimmermann. Keuchel was enjoying a Cy Young-worthy season before he was sidelined because of a pinched nerve in his neck. He's 9-0 with a 1.67 ERA.
