Sunday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Indians

Austin Jackson’s right hamstring, which was bothering him last week in Houston, is sore according to Jim Leyland. He could play, but Leyland is going to give him a day off to try to give it a chance to improve. Don Kelly gets the start in center.

Terry Francona goes against the usual lefty-heavy strategy against Rick Porcello and starts Ryan Raburn in right.
