Sunday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Indians
Happy Lobstein Day. Rajai Davis gets another start in center against Carlos Carrasco. With Tommy Milone slated to start for the Twins on Monday in Minnesota, he’ll be in center tomorrow as well. The break gives Gose a chance to work with hitting coach Wally Joyner, according to Brad Ausmus.
“It gives him a chance to take a step back, work with Wally in the cage a little bit,” Ausmus said.
James McCann, meanwhile, starts behind the plate for Lobstein.
The Indians, meanwhile, do some shifting around beyond the usual lefty matchup thing. Jason Kipnis moves up to leadoff, while Michael Bourn — mired in a 3-for-27 slump — moves down to ninth.
