Lineups for Minnesota — magic number 3 (or CF binoculars) edition

The Tigers clinched a playoff berth with a win and a Seattle loss, and trimmed their magic number to three with that win over the White Sox and a loss by the Royals. The Minnesota Twins come to town for the final four games of the regular season, with the Tigers holding a two-game lead in the American League Central Division.

At this point, the Tigers are playing to see if they'll play Monday (one-game playoff to determine division winner), Tuesday (AL Wild Card) or Thursday (AL Division Series in Baltimore). The Royals play in Chicago at 8:10 p.m., with James Shields facing Jose Quintana.
