Detroit was off to a solid start and then they went into Tampa and lost three straight. A visit to Minnesota might be more comforting for a team that is looking to squeeze out another postseason run with an aging group.
The hitting has yet to heat up while the pitching has the worst ERA in the Majors. There might be some cluster luck there but the peripherals support that poor ranking.
Its early but lefty Matt Boyd is leading the team in wins with two. The key thing that stands out is the fact that he held the Twins to just one hit over 6 inning a week and a half ago.
That level of dominance is going to be rare for a player with his skill set. Minnesota has a lot of free swingers and it appears he was hitting his spots that day.
The Twins have actually been respectable and surprisingly it has been because of pitching. The question now is whether the bats can start balancing that out.
Miguel Sano looks much better this season but Byron Buxton has been a complete disaster.
He is not even hitting half his weight and has scored just one run this season while striking out half the time.
Adalberto Mejia is far from a household name.
This start will be his third of the season and just his fourth Major League appearance ever. His first start was forgettable but he was much better in his second.
Both of those games were against the White Sox though so it is hard to get a great read. Maybe he will give the Tigers some fits but that is a strong righty lineup too.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
I’ll go with the Tigers here. I like that Boyd has had success against Minny in the past but mostly I just like the team better and Mejia is too much of an unknown at this point. I don’t like this matchup.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Detroit
With Boyd on the hill and this being a road game we should be able to get some value on this play. Look for maybe -110 or better. I like those numbers a lot.
