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 road matchup with the Washington Nationals.

The game against Bryce Harper and friends will be the first of a number of games this week against the National League East.

Following the contest against Washington, Detroit will hit the road again to take on the Miami Marlins on Tuesday.

Wednesday will then bring a home contest versus Atlanta, while Thursday sees Detroit take to the road once again to match up with Brian Snitker’s team.

Moving to Friday, the Tigers will get a break from the National League East when they play host to the Yankees.

However, Saturday will see half the Tigers play away to Atlanta while the rest of the team hosts the Marlins.

The Detroit Tigers enter the new week coming off a win. While wins and losses don’t matter much in the spring, it was still encouraging to see Detroit get back in the win column.

Sunday’s win against the Mets saw Jose Iglesias, J.D. Martinez and Omar Infante drive in runs in a 4-3 victory. Martinez also went yard for a Detroit team that got three perfect innings from Mike Pelfrey.

Other pitchers who put up zeroes against New York included, Ruben Alaniz, Mark Lowe and Sandy Baez.
