MLB: Spring Training-Philadelphia Phillies at Pittsburgh Pirates Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Trevor Williams starts his season in the first game of a day-night doubleheader in Detroit. Game time is 1:10pm ET. On the mound for the Tigers will be Michael Fulmer, who went 10-12 last year with a very bad team. The lineups:


  1. Adam Frazier, DH
  2. Josh Harrison, 2B
  3. Gregory Polanco, RF
  4. Josh Bell, 1B
  5. Corey Dickerson, LF
  6. Starling Marte, CF
  7. Francisco Cervelli, C
  8. Colin Moran, 3B
  9. Jordy Mercer, SS


  1. Leonys Martin, CF
  2. Jeimer Candelario, 3B
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
  4. Nicholas Castellanos, RF
  5. Victor Martinez, DH
  6. John Hicks, C
  7. Mikie Mahtook, LF
  8. Jose Iglesias, SS
  9. Dixon Machado, 2B

As noted in the comments, the Pirates have called up Clay Holmes to serve as their 26th reliever man for the day. If he gets into one of the games, it’ll be his major league debut.
