Thursday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Royals

Austin Jackson is out of the lineup today. No official reason yet, but Jim Leyland has been talking for a while now about getting him a day off. He thought about doing it last week but changed his plans when Jackson went on a tear at the plate. Don Kelly gets the start in center, with Andy Dirks leading off.

For those of you not in Detroit or KC, tonight’s game is on MLB Network.

Meanwhile, for those of you listening on the radio in Michigan or online, don’t get confused if you hear the voice of the Red Wings. Ken Kal is filling in for Dan Dickerson tonight. It’s a scheduled absence.
