Monday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Astros

Homestand 010

The Tigers left Kansas City with temperatures around 80 degrees yesterday. It’s looking like they’ll be lucky to get a first-pitch temperature above 50 tonight. But the forecast calls for a warmup by the end of the series, all the way up towards 80 by Thursday’s series finale.

Back to the standard lineup for the Tigers against right-hander Jarred Cosart. The only two Tigers that have seen him did so with other teams last year.


  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B (1-for-2, walk off Cosart)
  2. Torii Hunter, RF
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
  4. Victor Martinez, DH
  5. Austin Jackson, CF
  6. Nick Castellanos, 3B
  7. Alex Avila, C
  8. Andrew Romine, SS
  9. Rajai Davis, LF (1-for-3 off Cosart)

P: Max Scherzer

ASTROS (career numbers off Scherzer)

  1. Jose Altuve, 2B (0-for-3)
  2. Dexter Fowler, CF (3-for-10, double, 5 K’s)
