The Tigers are taking a brief 3-game vacation to face the Royalty of Kansas City before returning home again for the biggest series of the season (before the next biggest series of the season). Justin Verlander is on the hill to close out his super-strong August, Miguel Cabrera is back at third (phew) and the rest of your lineups are after the jump:
Tigers - (J. Verlander – R)
My hand slipped off my forehead and slapped the person next to me at the store when I saw Miguel Cabrera was back in the lineup and at his regular 3B spot. Yes, I was extremely sweaty and I wiped aggressively to supplement the sigh of relief. Never a doubt, though.
Delmon Young is back in the No. 5 spot! Ahhhh– oh, he’s hitting .304/.337/.843 in August. Okay, cool. Whatever.
Good to see QB in there instead of Boesch. If Austin Jackson is a firestarter, QB is the team firecracker.
