Friday’s lineup: Tigers vs. Twins

With Kyle Gibson allowing just a .202 average (24-for-119) to right-handed hitters, Andrew Romine gets his first start at shortstop in a full week. J.D. Martinez, meanwhile, gets another start, this time in right field in place of Torii Hunter, who’s 1-for-12 since his back-to-back multi-hit games last weekend against the Red Sox.

Still waiting on a full Twins lineup, but Dustin Morse of the Twins media relations department tweeted that Brian Dozier will get his first day off of the season. Eduardo Escobar supposedly will start at second base in his place.
