With much of the projected starting lineup playing the Yankees in Lakeland, Carlos Guillen, Magglio Ordonez and the rest of the Tigers squad will be in Port St. Lucie to take on the Yankees' NL counterparts, the Mets.

Two youngsters the Tigers will be depending upon heavily in 2010 will be on the mound. Max Scherzer (and his 30.86 ERA) gets the start, hoping to to get untracked. In relief, Ryan Perry will try to build on his already impressive spring (3.2 IP, 0.00 ERA, 0 H, 0 R), bidding for a setup role in the bullpen.
