The Los Angeles Angels will look to stay relevant in the playoff race as they wait for Mike Trout’s return, and that effort continues this Thursday as they take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.
Los Angeles Angels
The LA Angels have not been all that great recently, but they have had to play against some awfully good teams with recent series against the likes of the LA Dodgers, Toronto Blue Jays and Houston Astros.
This Angels team has really held things together well with the bat in the absence of Trout, as they have a team batting average of .251 and have managed to score 547 runs on the season which ranks them in 13th overall.
The biggest issue for the Angels in this spot might be that they send Jose Quintana to the hill who has not been at all good this year and it would not be surprising to see him struggle a bit against a sneaky good Detroit Tigers batting lineup.
The Detroit Tigers have clearly built a solid base to build on into the future, as it now looks like the Tigers might be a challenger sooner then we all thought this past off season with the batting lineup being the biggest surprise of the two units.
Detroit has had a number of hitters step up in a big way this year with Eric Haase in particular adding a lot of lower order power which has really helped this team pick up wins as the catcher now has 19 home runs on the season.
One of Detroit’s bigger prospects heads to the hill this Thursday in the form of Matt Manning, who still has a bunch of potential, but has not been able to put it together this year as he enters the contest with a 6.1 ERA and a 3-5 record.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
I really only think the Angels have had struggles recently due to their strength of schedule and now that they get to play a team like Detroit I can see them starting to consistently pickup wins again.
Detroit obviously should not be underestimated, but I do not think this game should be a pick’em, as the road side should be a slight favorite so I do see some line value with the Angels in this one.
There are clear pitching concerns on both sides of this, but the Angels should be better set up for success because doing a little digging into the advanced stats for this one and you can find plenty more excellent matchups for these Angels bats up against Manning.
