Tigers lineup as home-and-home series with Pirates continue

The Tigers attempt to snap a four-game losing skid, sending rookie call-up Buck Farmer to the mound for his MLB debut.

In order to get Farmer on the active roster, the Tigers optioned Kevin Whelan to Toledo. To open a spot on the 40-man roster for Farmer, the Tigers designated Ramon Cabrera for assignment. He was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Pirates, his old organization. The Tigers acquired Cabrera in a minor league swap for Andy Oliver.
