The only way the Tigers are going to be a threat this season is if their bats wake up. It is no surprise that Miguel Cabrera is leading the team in hitting but he is batting just .266. He looks slow this season so does Victor Martinez. At some point in their careers even the greats show their age. The offense has potential but reaching it seems unlikely now and Ian Kinsler is hurt.
If Detroit is going to stay in the race they need one of their young pitchers to step up. Matt Boyd doesn’t have great stuff and does not miss a lot of bats so he is an unlikely candidate for an explosion but every once in a while he can lull a lineup into lazy contact. The KC lineup looks like a good matchup for him.
Kansas City Royals
As expected the bottom has fallen out for the Royals. They have never been a great hitting team and when you pair that with weak pitching it is a disaster. Even that vaunted bullpen is essentially gone.
The lone bright spot for this group has been Mike Moustakos. Free agent to be is on record personal home run pace.
Ian Kennedy was respectable last year but this season but this season he has not been very good. At his best he can still dominate a lineup but he has yet to win a game this and the team has only won a couple with him on the hill. Given the way they are sinking it is a tough sell.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
There is some slim pickings here. KC is not the team we know and love and Detroit is looking like a fade in general. Boyd vs Kennedy is hardly an inspiring matchup on the mound.

In situations like this you kind of just have to go with whichever team offers the better payoff. I think that will be Detroit but I definitely will not be betting big on this one.
