Team Strengths: The Tigers boast the most beginning pitching depth in the branch outside the Indians. Matt Boyd and Jordan Zimmermann hovered around league average last year, and Michael Fulmer is among those American League’s best when healthy. Tyson Ross is coming off a bounceback year when he showed he can still be a fine starter. The No. 5 spot is unsettled, but having four average or better starters sets Detroit apart.
Team Weaknesses: Underrated standout Nicholas Castellanos has been Detroit’s only above-average hitter a year ago, although Niko Goodrum and Christin Stewart revealed promise late in this season. With this lack of offensive ability, the Tigers scored the fifth-fewest runs in MLB and had the fourth-lowest OPS.
What They Did About It: The Tigers have adopted a rebuild, so few motions were created. Miguel Cabrera was in the middle of a bounceback season this past year prior to a ruptured biceps tendon ended his year, so his return could match the crime somewhat. However, even if that happens and Stewart and Goodrum show they’re for real, there’ll be a good deal of holes at the Tigers lineup.
Final Outlook: The Tigers beginning pitching makes a step ahead possible following consecutive 64-98 seasons, but a different top-10 draft pick appears likely in 2020.
