Lineup against Santana

Santana_1 Ryan Raburn gets to start in center against Johan Santana tonight. As well as Granderson has been hitting lately, Leyland said he didn’t want to put him in a situation where a pitcher like Santana messes him up not only tonight, but lingering into the games after that.

  1. Raburn, CF
  2. Polanco, 2B
  3. Sheffield, DH
  4. Ordonez, RF
  5. Guillen, SS
  6. Rodriguez, C
  7. Thames, 1B
  8. Monroe, LF
  9. Inge, 3B

This is not Raburn’s first game in a dome. He played at Tampa Bay during his late-season stint for the Tigers in 2004.
