Saturday: Tigers at A’s

Matt Tuiasosopo and Brayan Pena get the start against A’s left-hander Brett Anderson, though Tuiasosopo is 0-for-7 with four strikeouts off Anderson from his days in Seattle. The bigger changes are on the Oakland side, where Coco Crisp and Yoenis Cespedes are both out after leaving last night’s extra-inning game.

UPDATE: Cespedes was just placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle in his left hand. Michael Taylor has been called up to take his place on the roster.
