The Tigers won the season opener on Tuesday between these two teams that was scheduled to be played on Monday.
They got a good performance from Justin Verlander and, surprise, scored all six of their runs with homers, including one from center fielder JaCoby Jones.
I really used to like Jordan Zimmermann when he was a little younger and still in the National League. He’s really kind of “bleh” now.
Instead of consistently going seven and giving up two, he’s going 5.1 and giving up four. His stuff doesn’t seem to be the problem so I figure it has to do with the American League and whoever he spends most of his time working with in Detroit.
Either way, the Tigers do not have the pitcher they traded signed before last season. He also got lit up in Spring Training.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox will trot James Shields out there on Wednesday afternoon and if Jose Quintana got hit on Tuesday, Shields may push this one over himself.
It’s hard to believe it was just last year that Chicago traded for James Shields to bolster the starting rotation of a team with playoff aspirations.
In 22 starts for the Sox last season, Shields was nearly two wins below replacement level and at this point, he’s pitching for his life in Major League Baseball.
It’s been an awesome career for James Shields, but I’m not even sure that he’ll get through this entire season.
Everyone knows about Detroit’s power.
But JD Martinez is out to start the season and Justin Upton left Tuesday’s game in the seventh inning with a knee injury.
Even with their outfield depth being tested right from the outset, Detroit will find a way to score runs on Wednesday.
