Tigers and Nationals lineups

The Detroit Tigers have brought a fairly representative squad over from Lakeland for today’s 1:05 p.m. tilt, the most notable absence being new first baseman Prince Fielder. Like everyone else in baseball, we’ll be watching Miguel Cabrera closely at third base to see how the big slugger is getting around there.

One more quick Nationals note: Rick Ankiel (strained hamstring) has been cleared to play, following a full workout on Saturday, and is expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday night, when the Nationals play at Port St. Lucie against the Mets.

Michael Morse (strained lat muscle) and Adam LaRoche (sprained ankle), on the other hand, still appear at least a few days away from returning.

Here are the respective lineups:


1. Austin Jackson, CF

2. Brennan Boesch, RF

3. Miguel Cabrera, 3B

4. Don Kelly, 1B

5. Ryan Raburn, 2B

6. Andy Dirks, LF

7. Jhonny Peralta, SS

8. Clete Thomas, DH

9. Gerald Laird, C

-Doug Fister, RHP


1. Ian Desmond, SS

2. Danny Espinosa, 2B

3. Ryan Zimmerman, 3B

4. Jayson Werth, RF

5. Chad Tracy, 1B

6. Jesus Flores, C

7. Bryce Harper, RF

8. Tyler Moore, 1B

9. Roger Bernadina, LF
