Mark Teixeira went 2-for-6 with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored against the Indians on Wednesday.
Although Teixiera is certainly not the player he once was, he has been able to be a solid contributor in the power categories while staying somewhat healthy in 2014. He now sits with 17 home runs and 47 RBI through 249 at-bats as he remains on pace to get back to the 30 home run club for the first time in three seasons. That is, as long as he can stay off the trainer's table in the second half. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Anthony Gose is not in the Tigers starting lineup on Saturday.
With the Indians throwing righty Trevor Bauer, it's a bit curious as to why Gose is not in the lineup. He plays steadily against right-handed pitching and is slashing .333/.348/.511 this season, so perhaps there's an unreported injury lurking here. Addition updates are likely to come. Rajai Davis is playing center field and leading off. Analysis: Howard Bender
