Detroit Tigers Lineup
Simon will be on the hill again on Wednesday against the Marlins. He was awful in his last start, allowing six runs in three innings versus the Yankees last Friday. Obviously, Tigers fans hope he is better in this start against the Marlins.
Right-handed pitcher David Phelps will start for Miami. He has been excellent this month, posting a 2-0 record with a 0.82 ERA in 11 innings this spring.
