Tuesday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Jays

As expected, Victor Martinez returns to the lineup today, batting cleanup as the DH. Aside from Tyler Collins in center, the Tigers have close to a regular lineup. It’s at least a Major League lineup, as Wynton Bernard’s option to Triple-A Toledo this morning all but ensures Collins will make the squad (barring a last-minute move).

The last time Matt Boyd faced his old squad, he gave up seven hits over 3 1/3 innings. He’s facing the Blue Jays again, but a vastly different lineup thanks to a split-squad day for the Jays.

The forecast calls for showers and thunderstorms at some point this afternoon, thanks to a large system currently creeping in off the Gulf Coast. Bryan Holaday (who was originally written in the lineup for last night’s game but was written out with a thumb injury) is expected to catch the later innings after his thumb checked out OK on tests, but this game might not get that far.

No TV for this game, but you can catch the radio broadcast on AM 1270 in Detroit and MLB Gameday Audio online.
