Wednesday: Tigers at Angels

Sorry about not posting the lineup last night. I thought I had, but apparently it only went in as a draft rather than going live. For some reason, posting from my phone seems to be a problem for that right now.

Brennan Boesch was originally in the starting lineup after taking a foul ball off the inside of his right knee last night. But he said a little bit ago that he can’t go, at least not anywhere near full strength.

“I just in there out of hope,” Boesch said, “but I don’t want to go out there at 50 percent. It’s not fair to Brad, somebody going out there [who can’t cover ground in the outfield].”

Thus, it’s a return to outfield duty for Don Kelly, and a shift to the third spot for Andy Dirks. Ramon Santiago, who was set to bat ninth, is now batting second.
