Congratulations to the Tigers, they have sunk to being the lowest scoring team in the Majors. They are carrying a couple of ex Pirates in Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer but both have been hurt for a while. Sadly, it is not really injuries that has made this the least productive lineup in the league. They just don’t have much talent. Miguel Cabrera is the most expensive singles hitter in the league basically. No one on the team has even 9 homers.
After a few games in relief it seems Detroit is now committed to seeing what Daniel Norris can do as a starter. The answer to that question is not that much. Occasionally he looks alright but his stuff is just too hittable so eventually he gets beat. His splits show that he is a little more effective on the road but it is all relative. Detroit won his last start at Kansas City, another team that is really struggling.
The Pirates ended a long losing streak at Miami on Friday and won the series against the Marlins on Sunday. Hardly a sign they are going to get back into the race but better than the alternative. They are not a great scoring team either but really it has been the pitching that has really let down Pittsburgh, that was supposed to be the strength of the team. Josh Bell continues to hit well. He already has more RBIs than last year in half the games.
Rookie Mitch Keller is getting a chance and not doing much with it. I am not sure what the reasonable expectation were but through just a couple of starts he has been awful – 12 ER in just 7IP. Both of these starts were on the road so perhaps he is more comfortable at home and taking on that brutal Detroit lineup.

I imagine the Bucs are the home favourite. They should be but really this is a coin flip. Hopefully they score enough and their bullpen shuts it down.
