Sunday: Tigers vs. Orioles

The first Sunday of the regular season brings the first Sunday lineup of Brad Ausmus’ managerial tenure. Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez swap positions — Cabrera at DH, Martinez at first base. Bryan Holaday starts behind the plate. Andrew Romine gets the start at shortstop, while Tyler Collins gets another start in left.

On the O’s side, Buck Showalter tweaks his lineup a bit to try to get a spark. Chris Davis and Adam Jones switch spots in the batting order, while Nick Markakis moves back to his old second spot.

Bonus: Today’s game is being shown on MLB Network for viewers outside of Michigan.
