This is essentially a must-sweep series for the Tigers if they look to advance to the post-season, or even have a chance.
Detroit will face the worst team in the majors this season to date, and a rookie pitcher who has a lot of promise but has not yet adjusted to major league hitting.
The Tigers will roll out Michael Fulmer to the hill, the rookie sensation who has recorded a 3.03 ERA and a 10-7 record in his first season in the bigs.
Fulmer, while on an innings limit for the year, has been arguable Detroit’s best pitcher and will need him to continue as they chase the last AL Wildcard spot as an underdog.
Pitching prospects are never easy to project and such is the case with Jose Berrios, a consensus top-20 prospect entering the 2016 season. He made his debut earlier in 2016 but struggled and was sent back to AAA where he again dominated and was later recalled.
In his second stint, he hasn’t fared much better as his numbers still sit at an ERA of 8.88 and WHIP of 1.99.
Brian Dozier has been the best hitter since the All-star break, accounting for 27 homers and 9 steals with a .322 average over that span.
He now sits at 41 round-trips on the year and is essentially the one bright spot amidst this awful Minnesota lineup aside from maybe rookie Max Kepler’s 16 homers.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Tigers are 38-38 on the road
- Detroit is 4-6 in their last 10 games.
- Minny is 29-47 at home.
- Minnesota is 3-7 over their past 10 games.
Free Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
Berrios may still have a big ceiling as far as upside is concerned, but has not shown anything at the major league level yet that he will realize this potential this year.
Fulmer, a lesser prospect heading into the year, has however and could be a consideration for Rookie of the Year in the AL.
