After a 9-4 loss yesterday to the Houston Astros, the Tigers will host the Atlanta Braves in Lakeland this afternoon. Rick Porcello will get his second start against Atlanta in less than a week and pitchers Joaquin Benoit, Octavio Dotel, Jose Ortega and Phil Coke are expected to work from the mound as well. Meanwhile, Brennan Boesch took batting practice yesterday as he works on coming back from an oblique injury and could return to the lineup by the end of the week, while Ramon Santiago is out with a strained calf.
