Consecutive 64-98 seasons have set another low bar for the cash-strapped, rotationally-challenged Tigers ahead of opening day 19-20’. While former AL MVP Miguel Cabrera has shown prime flashes this spring, after appearing in 38 contests last year, Cabrera’s only proven aid in a subpar lineup is RF Nick Castellanos. Detroit’s offense, at 3.8 rpg last season, is again slated to be among MLB’s worst.
The Tigers’ projected opening day starter, Jordan Zimmermann, somewhat redeemed his 2017 disaster last season by compiling a 7-8 record and 4.5 ERA. Zimmerman, now 32, is 2-1 lifetime vs. Toronto.
Detroit’s lone notable offseason move came via the signing of reliable second baseman Josh Harrison.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto welcomes Charlie Montoyo as its new skipper after back-to-back losing seasons saw now-former manager John Gibbons lose his men. Following a 73-89 2018 campaign, the Blue Jays are picked to finish middle-of-the-pack in a tightly-contested AL East.
This season, the Blue Jays will rely on a powerful lineup, boasting seven players who hit 10-plus home runs last season, to overcome its batting average decencies.
Opposite Detroit, Blue Jays opening day starter Marcus Stroman seeks his 2017 form when he finished eighth in Cy Young voting. Last season, the 27-year-old posted a 4-9 record and career-worst 5.5 ERA.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Each club owns glaring deficiencies: Detroit struggles offensively and Toronto gives up its share of runs (5.1 last season, #26 MLB). However, the difference in today’s contest will be the deep ball. With all other factors nearly even, Toronto will use its power to open the season in style.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER the Number
Toronto’s shaky pitching won’t matter much against Detroit’s struggling bats. Meanwhile, Justin Smoak, Kendrys Morales, and Randall Grichuck will bolster a threatening 1-7 batting lineup that could prompt an early exit from Jordan Zimmermann.
