Game Notes: Tigers / Blue Jays

Thoughts: Jim Leyland stated recently that he wanted to use his Opening Day starting lineup against a lefty at some point. Many thought that it would happen against the Astros yesterday, but clearly that wasn't the case with Fielder traveling to Port St. Lucie. With lefthander Brett Cecil on the mound for the Blue Jays, is this the same lineup that we will see on Thursday?
