Jordan Zimmermann has returned from injury but doesn’t appear to be fully healthy… unless this is the worst fall from grace in recent memory.
He’s allowed 12 earned runs over 2.2 innings in his last two starts, the last being his first back from injury on September 10th against Baltimore. In his past seven starts, he’s allowed 35 earned runs.
Detroit’s offense has been a bright spot, boasting a lineup where seven of their nine regular hitters have 20+ homeruns on the year.
The ever-dangerous Miguel Cabrera leads the team in all major hitting categories aside from runs scored, with 33 homers, 91 RBI, a .310 average and a .385 OBP.
On the hill for the home team will be Corey Kluber, the former AL Cy Young winner who is making a strong case for his second trophy. On the year, Kluber owns a 3.05 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with a 16-9 record and 208 strikeouts.
It will be a tight race for the AL Cy Young between Kluber and Sale, with JA Happ and Danny Duffy as dark horses.
The Indians currently sit in first place in the AL Central Division by a margin of 6 games over the Tigers, in what is turning into an important series between the division rivals.
The Indians’ offense is led by Francisco Lindor and his .314 average while being a top defensive shortstop. Mike Napoli leads the team with 33 homers and 94 RBIs.

Free Detroit Tigers vs Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
Anyone facing Jordan Zimmermann is a good play right now, and with the division leading Indians and stud Corey Kluber on the mound, this shouldn’t be too close. The Indians have an incredible record at home and tee’d off on Zimmermann for 7 earned runs the last time they faced him this season.
