Cardinals Spring Training 2012: St. Louis To Send Out Starting Line Up Vs. Tigers

Opening Day is exactly a week away, and the St. Louis Cardinals' line up for today's Spring Training game vs. the Detroit Tigers looks a lot to what we might see when the Redbirds take the field on April 4 in Miami. Skipper Mike Matheny will send Adam Wainwright to the hill today, and backing him up will be every projected Cards starter.

Wainwright has been stellar this spring, having not allowed a run in 14 innings, though his five walks to nine strikeouts indicates that everything is not yet perfect as the Cardinals' ace returns from Tommy John Surgery. Here's today's line up, with the first pitch being tossed at 12:05 p.m. CT:

  1. Rafael Furcal, SS
  2. Carlos Beltran, RF
  3. Matt Holliday, LF
  4. David Freese, 3B
  5. Lance Berkman, 1B
  6. Yadier Molina, C
  7. Jon Jay, CF
  8. Tyler Greene, 2B
  9. Adam Wainwright, P
