Sunday’s lineups: Tigers at Mariners

Seattle 002

The Tigers have their standard anti-lefty lineup out against Roenis Elias, including Bryan Holaday behind the plate and Danny Worth at shortstop. Rajai Davis moves back to leadoff for a day.

The Mariners, meanwhile, load up with left-handed hitters against Max Scherzer, a strategy that worked for the Indians two starts ago. The only right-handed hitters in Seattle’s lineup are Mike Zunino and Willie Bloomquist. That means Robinson Cano remains out with the sore hand, but still looming on the M’s bench.
