While waiting for the lineup...

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles play three straight home games, so I can leave my GPS at the hotel. I've got this route memorized.

The clubhouse was closed to the media in the morning because of meetings. Players are participating in drills on the main field.

Justin Duchscherer is getting ready to pitch in an intrasquad game on one of the back fields. It's the "left-handed game" that manager Buck Showalter organized. Players were brought over from the minor league side, including first baseman Rhyne Hughes.

Remember him?

Brian Matusz is starting the real game today. Kevin Gregg is expected to pitch again while staying on his every-other-day routine.

The Tigers are bringing Miguel Cabrera, who will bat fourth. And no, he didn't drive the team bus.

Here's the Tigers lineup:
Austin Jackson CF
Scott Sizemore 2B
Ryan Raburn LF
Miguel Cabrera DH
Brandon Inge 3B
Casper Wells RF
Alex Avila C
Scott Thorman 1B
Cale Iorg SS

Adam Wilk LHP
