The strong showing from rookie Mike Fulmer has helped revive a rotation that had little depth last season. Meanwhile, the Rays have benefitted from a reclamation season from star 3B Evan Longoria.
The Tigers have benefitted from promoting top prospect, Mike Fulmer, as he’s provided front of the rotation numbers in supplement to veterans Jordan Zimmermann and Justin Verlander.
On the year, Fulmer has a 2.40 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with 60 K in 63.2 IP and a 7-2 record.
Detroit’s lineup is both deep and powerful, with 101 total homeruns on the year which puts them in 8th in the MLB but just 3 homeruns away from 5th.
No surprise that Miguel Cabrera leads the team in homers, RBI and OBP, as he has nine seasons of 30+ homeruns and 11 seasons of 100+ RBI in his career.
Tampa Bay Rays
Jake Odorizzi was once a top pitching prospect in baseball, and while he leads the Rays in ERA this season, 3.93 isn’t exactly anything to write home about.
His career ERA of 3.80 is fine but not amazing, though he has been fairly steady as has never finished with an ERA over 4.13 in his past two seasons.
The Rays’ power stroke has done a complete 180 from last year, as the team sits in 4th place in total homeruns with 108 on the year, compared to 2015 where they finished with 167 for the entire season.
Evan Longoria leads the way with 18 in his resurgent season.
