Friday: Tigers at Twins

The mystery position for Ryan Raburn is left field, giving Brennan Boesch the night off against Minnesota left-hander Brian Duensing. It’ll be Raburn’s first start in left since May 31, which was also against the Twins, though at Comerica Park.

In addition, Miguel Cabrera gets a game at DH, with Victor Martinez starting at first base. Hey, if Joe Mauer can do it and make a diving play …
