Detroit Tigers baseball returns on Monday afternoon as Spring Training continues. Per a tweet form Detroit’s official Twitter account, we know what the team’s lineup will look like for Monday’s contest.
Detroit Tigers players kick off a new week’s worth of Grapefruit League action on Monday with a home matchup with the Baltimore Orioles.
The Tigers are coming off an 8-5 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday despite jumping out to an early 4-0 lead.
On the pitching side of things, Daniel Norris started strong with three shutout frames. The 23-year-old allowed just one hit and a walk while punching out two.
While those pitchers offered plenty of positives, there were obvious struggles.
Mark Lowe struck out two in two-thirds of an inning of work. However, he was also tagged for three hits, three runs and a walk. Two of Lowe’s three hits allowed were home runs.
Greene allowed three hits and two runs in an inning, while his fellow reliever saw the Phillies register three runs, two walks and a hit in just a third of a frame of work.
Results don’t matter as much in Spring Training, but Monday is a new day for the club.
Detroit will host the Baltimore Orioles. Per a tweet from the Tigers official Twitter account, here’s a look at the team’s lineup for the game.

Additionally, Mike Pelfrey will start for the Detroit Tigers.
The veteran starter struggled mightily in his first season with the franchise. In 119 innings he only struck out 4.24 batters per nine innings while posting a 5.15 FIP, a 5.07 ERA and a 5.06 xFIP.
Pelfrey also posted a 1.731 WHIP for the Tigers.
So far in Spring Training, things haven’t been much different for the right-hander, who has appeared in two contests so far in Grapefruit League play.
Over the course of those two games—spanning 3.2 innings—Pelfrey allowed six hits and three runs. He’s only punched out one batter while surrendering three walks.
It will certainly be interesting to see how the veteran fares, not just in this game, but over the course of the rest of Spring Training.
First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. Eastern Time.
