Here's a good sign for Kirk Gibson's health.

The former Tiger is set to call more games for Fox Sports Detroit this year than last —possibly as many as 60.

Gibson, diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease last spring, had to drastically cut his workload last year, his first year back on the Tigers' TV team.

Rod Allen, the long-time analyst for the Tigers, is set to do 60 games, as well, and again will serve in the studio on days he doesn't call games.

Jack Morris, the third analyst, again will have the lighter load, as he continues to do double-duty, working on Twins telecasts, as well.

Mario Impemba is back as the play-by-play voice for a 15th season.

FSD plans to use two-man booths for most of the season, but will have the occasional three-man booth, including Opening Day in Detroit.

The Tigers open the season April 5 on the road against the Marlins, and open at home April 8 against the Yankees.
