Saturday: Tigers at Dodgers

When Jim Leyland said Friday that he would going to mix it up in his outfield to fit his four outfielders into three spots, I’m not sure if many people expected that to include center fielder Austin Jackson. Today, it does. Johnny Damon will lead off and play center in between Brennan Boesch and Magglio Ordonez. It’ll be his first start in center this season.
