Both teams are using the pitcher who was originally scheduled to start last night's game. Masterson (master of the hit by pitch) is yet to make two good starts in a month this season, but hopfully he'll have his second of June this afternoon.

Both teams are also using the same starting lineup they had set to go last night, with the only change being Pujols playing as DH, and Ibanez playing 1B.

Michael Brantley is out with a mild concussion, and is expected to miss tomorrow's game as well, but he and the team seem to think he'll be ready to return on Saturday or Sunday. Missing two or three games is not a big deal, so let's just hope he really is fully recovered when he rejoins the lineup, and shows no ill effects going forward.
