Jharel Cotton is scratched from tonight’s lineup. Alcantara will take his place. On the Detroit side of things is Buck Farmer, RHP. Miguel Cabrera is back in the lineup today after sitting out yesterday’s game with ongoing back issues. Alcantara will be seeking to end a fourteen game hitting streak for 25 year-old Nicholas Castellanos. In addition, Alcantara will no doubt be hoping for a Matt-attack at the plate to support his defense.
