The Detroit Tigers continue their three-game Spring Training road trip on Friday afternoon with a return visit to Walt Disney World to take on the Atlanta Braves. Rajai Davis will return to the lineup and bat leadoff after missing several games with a tight hamstring. Justin Verlander will receive his third official start of the spring after finding out he’d start Opening Day for a seventh straight season.
