Saturday’s lineups: Tigers at Marlins

So James McCann felt strong enough this morning that he did get on the bus for the long ride to Jupiter. He’s in the lineup as the designated hitter for Saturday’s game against the Marlins, the finale of the two-day trip. On the flip side, Miguel Cabrera was originally expected to start at first base today, but he’s not in the lineup. Andrew Romine gets the start at first base instead.

UPDATE: Starting pitcher Daniel Norris has been scratched due to lower back stiffness, according to the team. Blaine Hardy moves up to start in his place. The Tigers had Preston Guilmet, Drake Britton and Logan Kensing on the trip if innings are available, so expect them to pick up some work.

KRod, Lowe, Justin Wilson, Rondón, Boyd , Ryan ( I like the idea of 3 LH in central Division), VerHagen based on ST and contracts.

VerHagen or Farmer. The Tigers have a lot of faith in the latter

How many innings did they get in for a six-hour round trip bus ride? It’s not like rain wasn’t predicted.

Cafardo:”Jose Iglesias, SS, Tigers — The defensive metrics and the eyeball test didn’t quite add up with Iglesias in 2015. Here’s the most talented shortstop in the game (right there with Andrelton Simmons) and Iglesias was scoring low in defensive runs saved and UZR. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said what they found was a shortstop who was lunging forward when the ball was hit, limiting his lateral movement and his range. So the Tigers have made him aware to stay back so he can use his eye-popping range to his advantage”

Instead of whining and calling them a “scam”, you use them for your advantage

I’m really hoping that Maybin will come of age because I also think Gose has peaked. Can’t seem to make enough consistent contact.
