Akil Baddoo on Tigers' bench Friday

Detroit Tigers outfielder Akil Baddoo is not in the starting lineup for Friday's series opener against left-hander Kris Bubic and the Kansas City Royals.

What It Means:

Baddoo is grabbing a breather after starting the last six contests. He is yielding leadoff duties to Robbie Grossman and center field to Derek Hill.

Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Tigers have an implied total of 5.2 runs on Friday. Among qualified pitchers this season, Bubic's xwOBA (.363) and xERA (5.80) both rank in the bottom eighth percentile.
