While the Tigers open a three-game series against the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park this afternoon, Miguel Cabrera is not in the lineup for the third game in a row.
But does not mean he will not play?
Today's lineup card shows that Miggy is available.
But will he play?
Jim Leyland told the press after Sunday's 4-0 loss to Cleveland that he didn't know when Miggy would play, but he did say Miggy was feeling better.
One thing seems to be settled – megaprospect Nick Castellanos, who began his pro career as a third baseman before being strategically moved to the outfield in 2012 while at Toledo by the Tigers, will not sub at third base for Miggy. FSD's Rod Allen mentioned that on Sunday's broadcast.
Good news – after being out of the lineup on Sunday after slamming the wall in center field on Saturday night, Austin Jackson was listed is being back in the lineup today. Oakland Press reporter Matthew Mowery reported that Ajax had a stiff neck on Sunday.
