A’s/Tigers Game 5 Lineup Changes
Posted By Charles Mager On October 10, 2013 @ 4:58 PM In MLB | No Comments
Tigers manager Jim Leyland has made a big change, benching slick-fielding rookie shortstop Jose Iglesias and shifting Jhonny Peralta back to shortstop after playing him out of position in left field with some ugly results.
Don Kelly steps into the lineup for Iglesias, which is the latest in a long line of Leyland putting an awful lot of faith in the 34-year-old career .229 hitter.
