Friday’s lineups: Tigers at Royals

KC 083

Welcome to the second half of the season, which for now does not include Omar Infante. He’s not in the lineup tonight, and he almost surely won’t be back for this series. He’s still in Lakeland working out, and will rejoin the team Saturday only for a re-evaluation from the team medical staff in preparation for a possible minor-league rehab assignment.

As for Darin Downs, he has thrown a couple of bullpen sessions over the last few days, and the next step is to set up a session against hitters this weekend. He, too, could end up on a rehab assignment next week.

Welcome to the second half, huh? Thanks it’s nice to be here – do i have to take off my shoes?

Worrisome about omar. ………cant believe he is not ready yet. Reminds me of when Carlos was injured on a takeout slide, it wasn’t thought to be be serious and it really ended him.

Infante leads the team but for OBP in the 7th or later:307.340.485 .825.

Lyon signed by BoSox . Going to AAA

Boesch released

didn’t he do OK over there? Over 53 plate appearances he posted a .275/.302/.529 line and hit three ding dongs. Binge hit .197/.265/.283 in 303 PAs before DD took mercy on us!

Before injury in the minors:200.351 .267.618 8 SO/38PA

brennan doesn’t do the minors. wait – did the yankees not know that?

alex in the minors .242/.286/.394

(this year)

Pinstriped Bible : he is injured and is not good so good bye.

i see now

A real 2B and the inning was over. well before

My power just went out……..crap

There’s an article on Mlive re Omar. He will be evaluated on Saturday. Kevin Rand says he’s running at about half-speed. Depending on how the Saturday evaluation goes will decide when he gets a rehab assignment. Geez, I hope he’s OK soon.

Second time in three games fielder indifference with the starter

C. Machado breaks doubles record.

C, Machado? I only heard of Manny Machado, btw, who I think is a great player.

Is there a game tonight? (yawn)

“boesch release “matter of timing, not talent’,’ agent says. shoulder to be ready for majors in august ” Heyman reports

OMG, I didn’t even realize Andy was in the lineup and now he gets a basehit.

Rod and Mario are “feening” over Perez.

They never could hit Santana. Probably never will.

I need a drink!

SB , E what else?

Avila, no!!!!!!!!!!!

Call a RH

He wont do that but it is time for PH

After Dirks

Sub: the ump was way wrong with that

Rondon looked pretty good there.

yes! i say that was one of the positives!

Don Kelly?

Game over.

Totally overmatched. See ya tomorrow.

Didn’t show up……still have no power so I listened to the game on a small transister radio. Frustrated.

Tigers and Indians lose. KC and MN win. Race gets tighter.

The other teams in our division have nothing to lose and everything to win when they play us.. Tigers need to play a little more hungry.

they didn’t show up today. they will tomorrow. greg are you ok? give us some positives, man!!

I’m always astounded when this team is shut-out. Time for them to get serious…

well at least we didn’t leave more than 2 men on base
