Cabrera returns to Tigers lineup at third base

Miguel Cabrera is back in the Tigers lineup, and back at third base after Sunday’s game off and Monday’s off-day. He’s in his usual spot batting third.

Delmon Young’s recent tear has landed him back in the fifth spot behind Cabrera and Prince Fielder. Brennan Boesch is out of the lineup, as Quintin Berry gets a start in left field, moving Andy Dirks to right. Dirks, interestingly, moves back into the second spot against the right-hander.
