Tigers Vs. White Sox Starting Lineups: Brennan Boesch Dropped To No. 8 Spot

He's batting just .213 on the season, and Detroit Tigers outfielder Brennan Boesch will find himself in a new spot in the lineup on Sunday because of it. Normally a No. 2 hitter in front of the feared Miguel Cabrera, Boesch has been dropped to the No. 8 spot in Sunday's order by manager Jim Leyland in an effort to shake things up.

Taking Boesch's No. 2 spot is reserve outfielder Andy Dirks, who will bring much-needed speed to the top of the lineup. Here are the full starting lineups for Sunday's series finale at Comerica Park:

Tigers
1. Austin Jackson -CF
2. Andy Dirks -LF
3. Miguel Cabrera -3B
4. Prince Fielder -1B
5. Delmon Young -DH
