Wednesday: Tigers vs. A's

Day off for Renteria and Polanco, meaning Santiago and Raburn comprise the double-play combo. Ordonez is also off, with Matt Joyce in at RF and Sheff batting third. That’ll give those three a couple days off ahead of the Chicago series, and Leyland has placed a priority on putting out a representative team for a series that carries playoff implications.
