The Tigers are hanging in there, for now. I can’t help but think that week by week they are going to sink to where they are supposed to be in the standings.
The Indians are looking to track down Minnesota in the suddenly very competitive AL Central – four of the five teams had winning records heading into Saturday. Cleveland was second, a spot they seem poised to stay in this season….maybe.
That maybe is because this team is hitting awfully. The team batting average is actually under .200, which kind of seems impossible. They are second to last in runs scored giving the pitching essentially no room for error. The pitching staff is the strength – second in ERA – and it isn’t even close.
Adam Plutko is another of the young arms that are giving the Indians a great chance to win most nights. The key for him is keeping his pitches out of the center of the zone as homers have been a problem in the past. Against Detroit that is less likely to be a concern.
Detroit has been cobbling together offense this season, which is why they have been having some success. The average is not impressive, in fact the whole league is pretty dismal, but they have been running into balls – 10th in homers. Jacoby Jones is a rare .300 hitter and leading the team in homers.
A few years back it looked like Michael Fulmer was going to be a big contributor to the future of the Tigers. He has definitely fallen off that track and not looked good this season with just 5 innings over a couple of starts and three homers allowed already.
Free Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
The Indians have burned me a ton this season. It’s not that I thought they would be great but to hit as poorly as they have been, that was unexpected.
It is pretty much a team-wide slump and maybe this season it is going to be harder to turn things around. Who knows if the players can just go nuts in the cage to work out things the way they might have in past.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland ML
Still I feel much better in banking on Plutko to be sharp and the offense to do just enough to get the win.
