Detroit Tigers’ batting order changes could help
4 of 4
The final everyday lineup would look like this:
- Ian Kinsler
- Alex Avila
- Miguel Cabrera
- J.D. Martinez
- Victor Martinez
- Justin Upton
- Nicholas Castellanos
- Center fielder
- Jose Iglesias
With the two minor changes in the lineup, there would be more of an intimidation factor in the first four spots of the lineup, with solid hitters at 5 and 6 as well.
Avila hitting second would keep runners on base for the powerful middle of the order. While keeping Castellanos out of the top of the order will help J.D. and Miggy get more at bats.
Victor Martinez moving back a spot would not be too drastic, and would help the Tigers knock in more runs with a hot J.D. Martinez.

In simplest terms, this is the most logical order for Brad Ausmus to implement into the lineup, and fans could expect a few more runs.
