The Tigers have switched things up a bit following their poor Game 1 showing. Santiago replaces Ryan Raburn at second base and Betemit will start at the hot corner in place of Game 1 starter Brandon Inge.

The Yanks are featuring the same lineup that netted them a 9-3 Game 1 victory. They hold a 1-0 series lead.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
