After much delay, the Tigers have finally landed. Come on, jet lag! Still no Chisenhall in the lineup (lefty starter) but Jesus Aguilar will attempt to put himself back in the good graces of his manager when he starts at 1B tonight. In fact, 75% of this lineup is probably trying to put themselves back in Tito's good graces.

For those interested in some MiLB action, Scott Barnes Nobody will get his first start in AAA since 2012 tonight.
