Saturday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Rangers

Memorial Day weekend 001

Standard lineup today against Nick Martinez (not Joe Saunders, sorry about that). The Rangers, meanwhile, shuffle their batting order a bit, returning Shin-Soo Choo to the leadoff spot for the first time since Prince Fielder left the lineup. Mitch Moreland moves up in the order against Rick Porcello, who’s going against his career trend this year with a .237 average against lefty hitters. Leonys Martin moves down.

Reminder: Today’s game is on Fox Sports 1, not Fox Sports Detroit. It can be in a few different places depending on your cable/satellite provider and which town you live in. You can find the channel number on the Fox site here.
