Detroit is the worst team in baseball. The Tigers not only have as many losses as Baltimore (82); they have three fewer wins going into Friday’s games.
They face Charlie Morton in the series-opener, which you can almost certainly chalk up as another loss. They’ll see a red-hot Ryan Yarbrough after that.
Miguel Cabrera’s .346 OBP isn’t bad but he just isn’t driving the ball anymore. After hitting 38 homers in 2016, Cabrera has hit just 28 in the two-plus seasons that have followed, including the nine he has to his name this year.
Tampa Bay Rays
There isn’t anybody Yarbrough has to fear in Detroit’s lineup. He’s given up one run in two August outings, including 8.2 innings of shutout baseball before Kevin Cash gave him the hook after getting the first two batters out in the ninth the last time out.
Emilio Pagan got the final out in a 1–0 win in that one but Yarbrough wasn’t happy to miss the chance at throwing a complete game, especially considering he had thrown just 99 pitches.
After taking five out of six on the road against Seattle and San Diego, Tampa is home for some more cupcakes. It hosts Detroit and Seattle before heading to Baltimore.
