Same lineup for the Tigers, including Andrew Romine at shortstop. He’s batting 8-for-30 since Aug. 5 with two doubles and a solo home run. It equals his hit total from June 17 to Aug. 4.

The Rays get Wil Myers back and plug him in at the DH spot. He hasn’t played since the end of May after suffering a stress fracture in his right wrist.
