The Miami Marlins will get that much needed designated hitter this week as they begin a 2 game series with the Minnesota Twins.  My guess would be that Austin Kearns and/or Chris Coghlan get some extra ABs but no Marlin should be in your starting lineup unless you are in the deepest of leagues or NL-only.  Yes that includes Giancarlo Stanton for the time being! The Atlanta Braves will get to add even more pop to their lineup this weekend in Detroit as they take on the Tigers.  With Dan Uggla reportedly headed toward a DL stint, Ramiro Pena should get extra playing at 2B this week, and he has been swinging a hot bat.  NL-only guys should be targeting him.  As far as the extra ABs with the DH, Freddie Freeman should return ahead of this trip to the Motor City, so Juan Francisco should take the DH ABs as Chris Johnson moves back to 3B.After an emotional week, the Boston Red Sox get to stay home host 7 games at Fenway Park.  The Chicago White Sox and Washington Nationals also get to play 7 home games this week.The Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Twins, New York Mets and San Diego Padres will each host 6 home games this week.The Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates, Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays will spend the entire week on the road.  The Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians and Milwaukee Brewers will also spend the week on the road with a travel day on Thursday.Two Start PitchersA.J.
