An offseason filled with big signings headlines the Detroit Tigers as they get set to open the season in South Florida against the Miami Marlins.
The Marlins will look to Giancarlo Stanton to be the leader of this team, as he returns from a season that saw him filled with injuries.
Miami was expected to be a dark horse last season, but some unfortunate injuries led to their dismay. Miami saw power hitter Giancarlo Stanton and star pitcher Jose Fernandez headline that list, as they were just too big of injuries to overcome.
The Marlins will hand the ball to southpaw Wei-Yin Chen here in the opener. Some though they would give Jose Fernandez the nod, but after the Orioles spent a decent amount of money to get Chen, along with his experience in the league, they elected to go in this direction.
Chen has made 30 or more starts in 3 of the last 4 seasons. He brings in the experience factor, along with the ability to really change speeds. He is 1-0 against Detroit in his career, but boasts an ERA of 7.53 in in 3 career starts.
Detroit felt it was real necessary to spend the money this offseason.
After finishing in unfamiliar territory in the AL Central last season, the Tigers went out and sign both Justin Upton and Jordan Zimmerman to lengthy and multi million dollar salaries as they filled gaps that were desperately needed.
They’ll hand the ball here on Opening Day to the one guy who has consistently been there go to guy over the years in Justin Verlander. The Tigers ace had just an ERA of 2.27 and a .207 opponents’ batting average over his last 14 starts of 2015. He’ll look to build off that solid success, which was especially impressive after missing two months with an injury.
