Monday: Tigers vs. Royals

Sheff had been in the lineup until the suspension came down, so Jim Leyland did some juggling from there. Supposedly Magglio’s leg has been bothering him a little, so he gets a day at DH. Don’t be surprised if Miguel Cabrera gets a day at DH, too, sometime this week.

TIGERS (71-83)

  1. Granderson, CF
  2. Polanco, 2B
  3. Ordonez, DH
  4. Cabrera, 1B
  5. Joyce, RF
  6. Renteria, SS
  7. Raburn, LF
  8. Inge, 3B
  9. Ryan, C

ROYALS (70-86)

  1. David DeJesus, CF
  2. Mike Aviles, SS
  3. Jose Guillen, RF
  4. Ryan Shealy, 1B
  5. Mark Teahen, LF
  6. Alex Gordon, 3B
  7. Kila Ka’aihue, DH
  8. John Buck, C
  9. Alberto Callaspo, 2B

Four games for Sheff

He will not appeal, so his suspension will start tonight. No other Tigers were suspended or fined. Three Indians were supposedly disciplined in some sort, according to Tigers president/GM Dave Dombrowski.

UPDATE @ 5pm: Fausto Carmona received six games, while Victor Martinez and Asdrubal Cabrera received three each. Cabrera’s suspension will begin Thursday.
