Is this the weekend we finally see the Yankees start putting it together. Could be? Detroit is not likely to offer much resistance.
The Tigers are going to be a fade team all season. Their offense has been especially bad to start the year, they are second to last in runs scored and last in batting average at .200. What’s going to change for them?
Spencer Turnbull has made a couple of starts and pitched pretty well. The Tigers are 1-1 when he goes. He is unlikely to work deep into the ball game though, he has yet to throw 90 pitches in a game.
Detroit’s bullpen is noting special but it is not the reason they are struggling. It is not a strength either, that is hard to find on this team right now.
New York Yankees
The Yankees only split in their recent series with Baltimore so perhaps playing bad teams is not going to be the answer. This team is still not hitting the way they should. At least the power has ticked up though, they are 5th in homers.
Jameson Taillon has 21 Ks o just 2 BBs on the season. The problem is he is getting hit, he is giving up a homer a game and more than a hit per inning. This is a good matchup though.
The strong Yankees bullpen should help out Taillon throughout the course of the season. They should be more than ready to drop in fresh arms in high leverage spots.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
I am not seeing how you can take Detroit in this one. Turnbull might be alright for a few innings but if the Tigers don’t score it is not going to matter. You have to go run line though.
