Cleveland’s win-streak may have ended in Toronto this past weekend, but they still sit amongst the top teams in the league and will send their co-ace to the mound to face the Tigers.
Detroit has a deep lineup, though they will be facing a top-20 starter in the league who’s coming off of a start where he struck out 14 batters.
The Tigers have hit the 7th most homers this season, scored the 9th most runs and have the 6th best batting average.
Veterans Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez certainly aren’t showing any signs of their age, leading the squad in homeruns and batting average, respectively.
Jordan Zimmermann went 7-2 to start the year in the first two months, but since the beginning of June has gone 2-2 and allowed 25 earned runs in 35 innings.
While not the high strikeout pitcher he once was, Zimmermann is no longer an ace but a decent mid-rotation guy, though he faces a tough test in Cleveland.
While the win-streak has come to an end at 14 games, with two consecutive losses in Toronto this past weekend, they are still the hottest team in baseball.
The Indians have shot up and have a 5.5 game lead over the Tigers in the AL Central Division, following a 22 win month of June.
Cleveland is getting contributions all throughout the lineup, with budding star Francisco Lindor leading the Tribe with a .300 average and 94 total hits.
As mentioned, Carlos Carrasco is coming off of his best start of the season, punching out 14 hitters and allowing just 1 earned run and 5 total baserunners in the game.
On the year, Carrasco has a 2.56 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP, with a K/9 rate of 9.00 and a 4-2 record.
