After missing the past three games with an ankle injury Jose Bautista is back in Toronto’s lineup at designated hitter for today’s game against the Tigers.

Bautista tweaked his ankle sliding into second base Thursday and Rajai Davis filled in for him in right field during the three-game weekend series versus Boston.

Adam Lind is the odd man out this afternoon, moving to the bench to make room for Bautista at DH. Lind is off to a 1-for-16 start despite striking out just once so far.

    Good news for the Jays. The Tigers will also have a new DH today as Victor Martinez will not be playing due to a minor injury.

      Dirks gets a “day off” as DH and Kelly plays the field. Ai-yi-yi.

      As you saw the Tigers didnt need him, not against that pathetic pitching staff the jays are running out there. The Pain Train continues….

    The lone day game for today. I think I’ll quit listening to Rush and listen to it.
