Wednesday’s lineups: Tigers at Athletics

The Tigers face left-hander Scott Kazmir, but they won’t have Austin Jackson in their lineup. He’s 3-for-14 with eight strikeouts off Kazmir, part of his nontraditional struggles agianst southpaws. Coincidentally, he gets the night off, leaving Rajai Davis in center field at the Coliseum. J.D. Martinez starts in left, while Danny Worth spells Andrew Romine at short.
