The Tigers start a four game set in Anaheim tonight and here are your lineups…

J.D. Martinez was in the original lineup but was scratched as a precaution – his quad’s still tight – but he is available to pinch hit.

From the game notes:

The Tigers are in for a tough one this weekend, as Anaheim is one of those places they never seem to win much (the Angels are 19-8 in their last 26 at home against Detroit, and 40-15 there since 2001). To make matters worse, Garrett Richards has made two career starts against the Tigers totaling 14 innings and he didn’t allow a run. Richards has allowed just nine earned runs in his last 64.2 innings pitched, and he probably should’ve made the All Star team. Detroit’s hitters are in for a difficult matchup. Of course, Max Scherzer is no slouch either so one would expect a pitcher’s duel here.
