The Detroit News

Major League Baseball has yet to start its 2020 season, but that's not keeping it from getting a jump on 2021.

The Detroit Tigers released their 2021 schedule on Thursday, which includes Opening Day on April 1 at Comerica Park against the Cleveland Indians, kicking off a six-game home stand.

The Tigers will open their 2021 season at home against the Cleveland Indians.

The Tigers have back-to-back three-game series at Comerica to open the season, against the Indians and Minnesota Twins, respectively.

Their first road series begins April 9 at Cleveland. The Tigers close the regular season Oct. 1-3 with a three-game series at the Chicago White Sox.

The home schedule includes interleague series against the following teams from the National League Central: The Pittsburgh Pirates (April 20-22), Chicago Cubs (May 14-16), St. Louis Cardinals (June 22-23), and Milwaukee Brewers (Sept. 14-15).

The schedule includes seven straight games against the Twins, sandwiched around the All-Star break: A four-game series in Minnesota from July 8-11, and a three-game series at Comerica from July 16-18.

Here's a look at the Tigers' 2021 schedule. Times have not been announced. Dates are subject to change.
