Tuesday: Tigers vs. Rays

This should be an interesting matchup. The Tigers haven’t seen Rays fill-in starter/top starting prospect Jeremy Hellickson before, but they have a matchup against the Twins and some footage from Triple-A Durham to watch on video.
It’s now becoming apparent that Jim Leyland is going to stick with Brennan Boesch in the third spot for a while and see how he responds. Dave Dombrowski was on MLB Network Radio this afternoon and he mentioned the adjustments Boesch has made to counter the adjustments pitchers made against him.
