Tuesday: Tigers at Rays

Remember when Jim Leyland said last weekend that one reason for calling up Inge now rather than Sept. 1 was that they have a lot of left-handed starters ahead? Well, this is one of those days. And David Price is probably the best of the lefties they’re going to face.

Thus, Magglio Ordonez, Ryan Raburn and Brandon Inge are in. Brennan Boesch, Ramon Santiago and Wilson Betemit are off. Jhonny Peralta is 0-for-9 off Price, as is Miguel Cabrera. Victor Martinez is back at DH after missing last night’s game with back spasms.
