Friday: Tigers at Mets

I’m not on the trip today, staying back to work ahead on some stuff. Joey Nowak has Tigers coverage from Port St. Lucie on the site today.

The headline news will be Justin Verlander’s second start and Bruce Rondon’s third outing, but Andy Dirks also returns to the starting lineup for the first time in almost a week. He was the one with the intercostal strain, if you lost track of which outfielder goes with which injury.

1. Jeff Kobernus, 2b
2. Andy Dirks, lf
3. Victor Martinez, dh
4. Prince Fielder, 1b
5. Brayan Pena, c
6. Kevin Russo, cf
7. Avisail Garcia, rf
8. Don Kelly, 3b
9. Argenis Diaz, ss
P: Justin Verlander
