JUST IN: Detroit Tigers release lineup for matchup vs. Florida Southern

Baseball is back! Kind of.

Each year the Detroit Tigers head down to Lakeland, Florida for Spring Training and each year they start things off by playing an exhibition game against Florida Southern.

That will be no different this season as the Tigers will host the Mocs at 1:05 p.m. at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland.

The Tigers have released their lineup and it is much different than what it will look like on Opening Day. As you can see, Alex Wilson will get the start for Detroit.

It is supposed to be mostly sunny and in the mid-80’s in Lakeland so you can bet there will be some sweating going on today!

The Tigers begin Grapefruit League play tomorrow against the New York Yankees.

It may be snowy and cold in Michigan but the Detroit Tigers are in sunny, warm Lakeland, Florida beginning their work for the 2018 Major League Baseball season.

For Tigers fans, the feeling is extremely different than it has been over the decade or so as the team is in full rebuild phase. Justin Verlander, J.D. Martinez, Justin Upton, and Ian Kinsler are among the players who are no longer wearing the Old English D, which means the 2018 Opening Day starting lineup will look much different than it did just one year ago.
