Saturday’s lineups: Tigers at Marlins

Miami 026

Sorry to be so late with the lineups, but there aren’t really any surprises here. Jhonny Peralta gets a second consecutive start in left field. Other than that, it’s the regular lineup without DH Victor Martinez.

Miguel Cabrera is expected to be off tomorrow, so this could well be his regular-season finale to wrap up his third consecutive batting title and get one more shot at the RBI title.

The other statistical race to watch is the AL ERA race, where Anibal Sanchez (2.64) holds a narrow lead over Bartolo Colon (who finished his season last night at 2.65) and Hisashi Iwakuma (2.66).

On the Marlins side, former Tigers catching prospect Rob Brantly gets the start behind the plate.
