Wednesday: Tigers at Orioles

Miguel Cabrera and Jose Valverde both say they’re feeling better, and Justin Verlander is still on track to make his start, so it appears the stomach bug that was bothering this club the past couple days has passed.

As for the lineup, Brennan Boesch is back in the sixth spot, with Ryan Raburn on the bench. Manager Jim Leyland said this afternoon that Raburn will be back in the lineup for Thursday’s series finale. Victor Martinez will catch that game, so Boesch and Raburn will both be in the lineup.
