Ever since Phil Hughes has been a member of the Twins, he has been outstanding at preventing walks at league high rates. In 2014, Hughes had the lowest BB% and BB/9 in the league to include setting an all time record of strikeouts to walks ratio.
While his 2015 and 2016 season haven’t been as astounding as his record setting year, he still prevents walks at a high level. In an injury shortened campaign last year, Hughes walked less than two hitters per nine innings and the year before was even better with a 0.93 BB/9.
He’s off to a similar start in 2017, pitching six innings in his debut without issuing a walk and allowing only a single run. Hughes will be a steadying force this year for the Twins if he can stay healthy.
Jordan Zimmerman was a big signing for the Tigers entering the 2016 season, he was just off four straight workhorse type seasons for the Washington Nationals, averaging 202 innings per season during that time.
He also pitched effectively during that time as well and expectations were high for the Tigers organization.
Zimmerman in 2016 was not the pitcher that the Tigers thought they had signed, he posted his lowest inning count since becoming a regular to go along with his highest ERA of 4.87.
The Tigers are hoping that his first start is a sign of things to come, as he pitched six innings of one-run ball and notching his first victory.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
This should be a good pitching matchup against a couple of seasoned veterans; both guys don’t walk a lot of hitters so each offense will have to earn their runs.
