Schedule and projected starters:
Yes, you saw correctly. An entire series facing lefties, so it may be a while before we see either of the new faces, David Price (who should start Tuesday in New York), or left-handed hitting centerfielder
Ezequiel Carrera, who was called up from Toledo to take Austin Jackson’s spot on the roster. Dave Dombrowski said that Carrera and Rajai Davis will “share” centerfield, though whether it will be a left-right type of platoon or some other arrangement will have to be seen. Don’t be surprised to see Carrera introduced as a pinch-runner: he has already stolen 43 bases at Toledo.
Davis will try to match Austin Jackson’s recent success in the leadoff spot. Even more interesting will be to see how he does handling the centerfield duties. The Tigers’ pitchers gets a little bit of a break with the Rockies lineup, with Troy Tulowitzki on the 15-day DL.
