Sunday: Tigers vs. Twins

As expected, Omir Santos is catching, giving Alex Avila what has turned out to be a much-needed break. It will be Santos’ first game at Comerica Park.

The Twins, as if their injuries haven’t been enough, now have a flu bug going through their clubhouse. Danny Valencia was a late scratch.
