UPDATES & NEWS
Montee Ball (appendectomy) will be sidelined for the rest of training camp and the preseason, but is expected to be ready for the regular-season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
This is an interesting development. Ball is penciled in as the starter ahead of Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. An expected back-end of the first round pick in fantasy drafts, it would be disastrous if the time on the shelf costs him carries at the beginning of the season. It could also present an opportunity to less risk-averse owners.ANALYST:
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
