Hisashi Iwakuma throughout his career has struggled with giving up the long ball, since 2013 when he entered the league he has allowed at least one homerun per nine innings and has always been below average in terms of HR/FB ratio.
Last year was his worst year yet in homerun prevention, until this year that is. This year Iwakuma has given up 2.66 HR/9 innings, the 7th worst in the league.
As a result, Iwakuma has struggled this season, his last two starts especially. He gave up two homruns to the Oakland Athletics in his last outing and against the Rangers on April 16th he gave up six earned runs in only three innings of work.
Justin Verlander has been one of the very best pitchers of the past decade, he’s had some generational type seasons like 2011 in which he also won the MVP but he’s also had down seasons, as recently as 2014 in which he had a 4.54 ERA in over 200 innings pitched.
His four starts in this young season have been a combination of both the good and the bad of Verlander. In his first two starts he gave up only two runs while also striking out 14 in 13.1 innings.
But in his last two starts, he’s allowed 13 runs in only nine innings pitched.
As Verlander is certainly past his prime at age 34, his seasons may be more up and down. Guessing which Verlander will show depends a lot of the matchup, but also could just depend on the day.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Both starting pitchers in this game have the ability to set the world on fire, or burst into flames. However Iwakuma has struggled to prevent homeruns and the Tigers are a top five team in homeruns hit.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 8.5
The over/under seems reasonable at first glance, but when taking a closer look it wouldn’t surprise me to see a lot of runs in this game.
