A look at what’s happening around the majors today:WELCOME BACKJustin Verlander will make his first start in Detroit since the Tigers traded him to the Astros last August. The 2011 AL MVP went on to win the World Series with Houston last fall Ron Santo Jersey , while Detroit is powering through what figures to be a lengthy rebuild. Verlander has faced his former team once, allowing four homers in a puzzling 6-3 loss at Houston on July 15. The right-hander also struck out 12 in that game, but was charged with six runs in six innings while allowing four homers for the first time since 2016.NO RESTThe weary, NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs open a series at Wrigley Field against second-place Milwaukee. The Brewers are two-games behind the Cubs, who capped a soggy, delay-filled series in Washington with a three-hour wait Sunday before that game was postponed. Chicago and the Nationals will make up that rainout Thursday, erasing the Cubs’ final scheduled day off for the rest of the season. Jon Lester (15-5, 3.53) will pitch the opener of the three-game series against Milwaukee, which will counter with Wade Miley (3-2, 2.12).PITCHING INStar reliever Andrew Miller will return to Cleveland’s bullpen as the Indians open a series at Tampa Bay. The left-hander has been out since late August with a left shoulder injury, the latest setback in a rocky season for the two-time All-Star. Miller has a 3.38 ERA in 24 innings, though he pitched better in August before his shoulder flared up. Miller might not be needed Monday, as the Indians are set to start Corey Kluber (18-7, 2.75) http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-yolmer-sanchez-jersey , who leads the majors in wins and is 2-0 with an 0.66 ERA in his past two outings. Tampa Bay has won 11 straight home games, tying a team record.SNAKE BITThe Diamondbacks try to put a pair of tough losses behind them as they open a series at NL West-leading Colorado. Arizona lost to Atlanta 5-4 in 10 innings Saturday night when Nick Ahmed was thrown out at home by shortstop Dansby Swanson for the final out, and then the NL East-leading Braves erupted for six runs in the ninth inning to beat the Diamondbacks 9-5 on Sunday. Zack Godley (14-8, 4.51) opens the four-game series at Coors Field. He’s 4-0 with a 2.56 ERA in five career starts against the Rockies. German Marquez (11-9, 4.05) is up for Colorado.DEGROM DAY REDUXJacob deGrom will pitch a day after the Mets scratched his scheduled start due to a forecast of steady rain. Instead of facing the playoff-chasing Phillies, the NL Cy Young Award-frontrunner gets the last-place Marlins. DeGrom’s candidacy comes with a bizarre statistical quirk — the right-hander has just eight wins for the struggling Mets, but has contributed 8.1 wins above replacement, per Baseball-Reference.com. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics plan to discuss a contract extension with manager Bob Melvin this offseason as well as possible new deals with home run leader Khris Davis and All-Star second baseman Jed Lowrie.Two days after the A’s lost to the New York Yankees in a wild-card game, team officials began mapping out the framework for 2019 with hopes of capitalizing on the team’s first playoff appearance in four years.Signing Melvin, Oakland’s manager since 2011, to an extension is high on the list of things to do. He’s currently signed through the 2019 season.“Bob’s one of the best in the game and he’s perfect for us,” said Executive Vice President Billy Beane, who appeared before reporters Friday along with Melvin and general manager David Forst. “The idea is that he’s here for a long time and the rest of his career. Our feeling is that Bob’s the right guy for this club and should be going forward. (That’s) another question that we hope to have answered in the offseason.”The A’s playoff appearance was the fourth in eight seasons under Melvin. Oakland’s 97-65 record was also the best mark of Melvin’s managerial career.The 56-year-old skipper said he still hasn’t gotten over the wild-card loss to the Yankees but is optimistic about Oakland’s prospects for next season.“As impressive as some of these younger players were Adam Engel Jersey , we feel like they can even get better so I’m excited about where we’re going from here,” Melvin said. “I expect us to have results again next year. Obviously, we’re going to have to add some pieces and make some decisions on some free agents but I’m really excited about where this team’s going.”Davis isn’t scheduled to be a free agent until after the 2019 season but the A’s are hopeful of getting the slugger inked to a long-term deal before then.Davis led the majors with 48 home runs this year, his third consecutive season with 40-plus homers.“We’ve had some preliminary conversations about keeping him around longer (than 2019),” Beane said. “That’ll be part of the conversations that David, myself and Bob and the rest of the staff have.”Lowrie’s situation is more uncertain despite his first All-Star appearance.The veteran infielder hit .267 with a career-high 23 home runs and 99 RBIs and was a key influence inside Oakland’s mostly young clubhouse.But Lowrie turns 35 next April and the A’s may be tempted to go with Franklin Barreto, their young prospect who hit five home runs with 16 RBIs in 73 at-bats.“I’m happy with the year that I had and I feel like I’m going to go into the offseason and hopefully be in a good position,” Lowrie said, adding he’s open to returning to the A’s. “Free agency can be funny so you just go into it with an open mind. We’ll talk with my agent and we’ll be prepared for situations that arise.”Catcher Jonathan Lucroy is also scheduled to become a free agent. Forst said the A’s are open to retaining both Lowrie and Lucroy.“Jed and (Lucroy) were huge for what we did,” Forst said. “Obviously, both of those guys will be part of our conversations over the next month.”__
