Friday: Tigers vs. Orioles

So with split-squad games coming up Saturday, and so many regulars having played Thursday, Jim Leyland is taking today to give some of the veterans a rest and avoid overplaying them this early. Among the guys off: Miguel Cabrera, Magglio Ordonez, Victor Martinez, Brandon Inge, Jhonny Peralta and Austin Jackson. Brennan Boesch, meanwhile, gets the DH slot today.

On the bright side, it’s going to give some younger guys some more at-bats, among them Andy Dirks and Ryan Strieby. It also puts Casper Wells in center field.
