Tigers at Red Sox, lineups, Tuesday, May 29

It's been so long since I was doing a lineups post last that I nearly forgot how.

  • I like Big Al's use of dots on these things.
  • Ryan Raburn is out of the lineup for Detroit.
  • Dustin Pedroia could be out for a long time for Boston after his injury yesterday. In his place: Juicebox.
  • Detroit loaded up on left-handers against Boston starter Daniel Bard, who in 2012 has completely reverse splits: .704 OPS for left-handers and .817 for right-handers. His career splits are more traditional -- and he usually does great against both righties and lefties, truth be told.
  • Delmon Young had a court appearance in New York but made it back in time to make a Fenway Park appearance as well.
