Monday’s lineups: Tigers at White Sox

Looks like Miguel Cabrera is in the starting lineup tonight, albeit as the designated hitter. Brad Ausmus was noncommittal about the DH slot when asked about it last night, noting the risk of having Cabrera sit around for a few innings and then get up to bat with his hamstring cold, but they’ll give it a shot.

TIGERS (numbers off Hector Noesi)

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B (2-for-10, double, walk)
