Team Strengths: The Tigers boast the most starting pitching depth in the division outside of the Indians. Matt Boyd and Jordan Zimmermann hovered around league average this past year, also Michael Fulmer is among those American League’s best when healthy. Tyson Ross is coming from a bounceback year when he revealed he could still be a fine starter. The No. 5 place is unsettled, but having four ordinary or better starters sets Detroit apart.
Team Weaknesses: Underrated standout Nicholas Castellanos was Detroit’s only above-average hitter a year ago, although Niko Goodrum and Christin Stewart revealed promise late in the season. With that 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 reconstruct, so few motions were created. Miguel Cabrera was in the midst of a bounceback year last year before a ruptured biceps tendon finished his year, so his return could buoy the crime somewhat. However, even if that occurs and Stewart and Goodrum show they are for real, there will be a good deal of holes at the Tigers lineup.
Final Outlook: The Tigers starting pitching leaves a step ahead potential after consecutive 64-98 seasons, but a different top-10 draft select seems likely in 2020.
