Designated hitter Victor Martinez is out of the lineup for the Tigers and is listed as day-to-day because he cut his right thumb on the bat rack.

The cut, sustained on Sunday, required eight stitches.

Andy Dirks was penciled into the Tigers' lineup as the designated hitter for the game on Tuesday against the Toronto Blue Jays — with Don Kelly starting in left.

That's not the only change on the Tigers, though.

Brian Britten is switching jobs from director of media relations to director of team travel, according to Ron Colangelo, the Tigers' vice president of communications.

Rick Thompson, the Tigers' manager of media relations, has been assigned Britten's former duties.
