DETROIT – First, the demise of All-World hitter Miguel Cabrera and his injured quad were highly exaggerated. He was the starting DH for the Friday game.
As far as Tigers slugger Gary Sheffield [finger], he was not in the starting lineup and was rumored to be headed for the DL. Not the case, however, as the latest diagnosis has him missing just a few games.
The starting lineup for the White Sox was the same as Thursday: CF Swisher, SS Cabrera, DH Thome, 1B Konerko, RF Dye, C Pierzynski, LF Quentin, 3B Crede and 2B Uribe, while Jose Contreras makes his regular-season debut.
