Sunday: Tigers vs. Rangers

As expected, Prince Fielder gets the day at designated hitter. Don Kelly gets the start at first, with Miguel Cabrera staying at third. Ramon Santiago gets the start at second against righty Colby Lewis. The result is a lineup that alternates right- and left-handed batters before ending with a switch-hitter.

Adrian Beltre is out of the lineup for the Rangers after his hamstring strain yesterday. Alberto Gonzalez gets the start at third base.
