Tigers lineup for Game 1 of doubleheader vs. Indians

The Tigers came into Saturday's doubleheader needing an arm for the bullpen, so they brought Corey Knebel back up.

Drew VerHagen was called up as the 26th man, and got the start in the first game.

Victor Martinez was in the starting lineup for the second straight game, after missing 11 of 13 to finish out the first half of the season, but manager Brad Ausmus was unsure he'd play Martinez in both games of the doubleheader.

"That won’t be decided until after the first game. Let’s see how it goes," Ausmus said Saturday morning.
