Thursday: Tigers at Indians

Sorry so late on the lineups, but it’s been a quick turnaround from last night. As you might’ve heard by now, Todd Jones is on the DL with what the team is calling inflammation in his shoulder for the time being. He’s undergoing an MRI exam in Cleveland right about now, so the team should have a better idea how long he’ll be out by tomorrow.

Clay Rapada was recalled from Triple-A Toledo and made the quick drive over this morning, arriving about an hour before game time, but he’ll only be here for a day. He’ll be optioned back out to make room on the roster for Kyle Farnsworth, who will join the team Friday at Tampa Bay.

At this point, Rapada is one of few relief arms they have who can give multiple innings. Aside from him, Joel Zumaya is the closer today and Aquilino Lopez is available in an emergency. After that, well, Kenny Rogers and Armando Galarraga are available.

Here are the lineups:

TIGERS (55-52)

  1. Granderson, CF
  2. Santiago, 2B (schedule day off for Polanco)
  3. Guillen, 3B
  4. Cabrera, 1B

  6. Thames, DH
  7. Renteria, SS
  8. Raburn, LF
  9. Sardinha, C (no way Leyland was catching Inge today)

  2. Franklin Gutierrez, CF (5-for-13 off Verlander)

  6. Andy Marte, 3B
  7. Ryan Garko, 1B

Jason,we have been experiencing difficulties posting during game times.If we fall out of the top 10 its not our fault.I noticed the x rated blogs were up and running the last 2 days.Whats up with our site? Maybe you could check into it…..Thanks Bruce

what a stinker.. i hate when i’m right sometimes..
every single run we got today was gift wrapped by the indians defense.
i don’t know why i’m typing this.. it’s not likely to go through.
