No more Bush-Rivera pairing?

With Mike Cameron serving his one-game suspension today, Jody Gerut gets the start in center field. The only other notable change is that Jason Kendall, not Mike Rivera, is serving as the catcher. Usually, Mike Rivera (who began his career with the Tigers) handles Bush.

That’s an interesting switch considering Bush’s recent struggles. Maybe manager Ken Macha or pitching coach Bill Castro think Bush needed a different approach. Maybe Bush requested the switch. Macha will meet with reporters at the start of batting practice, and we’ll see what he has to say.

In the meantime, here is the lineup for what appears to be a beautiful day in Detroit:

Craig Counsell  2B
Casey McGehee  DH
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
Corey Hart  RF
Mat Gamel  3B
J.J. Hardy  SS
Jody Gerut  RF
Jason Kendall  C

RHP Dave Bush
