Andy Oliver photos are few and far between, so hopefully the re-sized version of the one I found will do. Since this is his MLB debut there aren't any stats for him, but you can find a nice little scouting report by our own David here.
The Braves are half a game up on the Mets in the NL East division. They lost their last three games, so unfortunately for the Tigers, they are probably ready to change their luck.
No Tigers have faced starter Kris Medlen, other than Johnny Damon with a hit in one of his two at bats against him. Medlen is the Braves' replacement while Jair Jurrjens is on the DL, and looking at the numbers it appears he's done a decent job with his opportunity.
Tigers lineup: Damon 8, Santiago 6, Ordonez 9, Cabrera 3, Boesch 7, Guillen 4, Inge 5, Avila 2, Oliver 1.
Braves lineup: Prado 4, Heyward 9, Chipper 5, Glaus 3, McCann 2, Escobar 6, Infante 7, Cabrera 8, Medlen 1
