Today's Lineups

Kole Calhoun - RF Michael Bourn - CF
Mike Trout - CF Asdrubal Cabrera - SS
Albert Pujols - 1B Jason Kipnis - 2B
Josh Hamilton - LF Carlos Santana - 1B
Erick Aybar - SS Ryan Raburn - RF
Howie Kendrick - 2B Nick Swisher - DH
Raul Ibanez - DH Yan Gomes - C
David Freese - 3B Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B
Hank Conger - C Mike Aviles - LF
C.J. Wilson - LHP Justin Masterson - RHP


Justin Masterson (master of the hit by pitch) can hopefully have a second good game in a calendar month for the first time in 2014. He's opposed by Wilson, a southpaw, so we get Chisenhall batting near the bottom of the order, and Raburn in the lineup. Aviles is there too, because Michael Brantley is out with a mild concussion, and will miss tomorrow's game as well, but is expected back at some point during the weekend series against Detroit.
