The Indians are struggling with the bats with their all-star bat Michael Brantley on a rehab assignment, currently hitting .248 as a team with 10 home runs.
The Indians have Josh Tomlin taking the ball on Friday. Tomlin will be throwing in his second game this season, as he was struggling with a hamstring issue.
In his first start against the Mets, Tomlin threw 5 innings, scattering 4 hits and fanning 6 batters. The Indians currently have a team E.R.A. of 3.87 with 84 combined strikeouts.

The Detroit Tigers are really hitting the baseball currently, hitting .282 as a team with 18 long balls. They are led in hitting by J.D. Martinez, currently hitting .362 with a .436 on base percentage.
Martinez is a player this team needs in order to make a playoff push. Ian Kinsler is right behind him in average hitting .351 with 4 home runs and 11 RBI’s on this season. The Tigers also have Nick Castellanos hitting .349 on the year.
The former C.Y. Young winner Justin Verlander is taking the bump for the Tigers. Verlander has been seen in 3 starts this year, and is currently 1-1 with a 7.16 ERA.

Free Cleveland Indians vs Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
This game will be a high scoring game I feel with the lineups both having power bats throughout, and both hitting well currently. This Tiger’s team has the possibility to be good if they’re able to get the middle of their lineup hitting.
