Opening Day lineup

After figuring Jim Leyland would go with Victor Martinez behind the plate and an extra right-handed hitter against CC Sabathia, he threw a change and went with his standard lineup. Alex Avila will catch. Will Rhymes will bat second and play second. Ryan Raburn will bat sixth.

The lineup:
1. Austin Jackson, CF
2. Will Rhymes, 2B
3. Magglio Ordonez, RF
4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
5. Victor Martinez, DH
6. Ryan Raburn, LF
7. Jhonny Peralta, SS
8. Brandon Inge, 3B
9. Alex Avila, C
Starting pitcher: Justin Verlander

One more thing: Leyland indicated that Brennan Boesch will be in left Saturday.
