Left lat tightness for Robertson

It's basically muscle tightness in his left side.

Tuesday: Tigers vs. Twins

Nothing big developing in the lineup, but Curtis Granderson took three rounds of batting practice and felt good. He feels like he could play with the level of pain he has now in his fractured right finger, but that it’s a matter of getting his timing and his activity level back to game shape. That’s why in addition to hitting, he was running the bases. There’s every indication the Tigers will take their time with him, but it’s at least encouragement.

Without Granderson, here’s the Tigers lineup:

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

Craig Monroe is at DH for the Twins:

  1. Carlos Gomez, CF
  2. Brendan Harris, 2B
  3. Joe Mauer, C
  4. Justin Morneau, 1B
  5. Delmon Young, LF
  6. Jason Kubel, RF
  7. Craig Monroe, DH
  8. Mike Lamb, 3B
  9. Matt Tolbert, SS
