Both of these teams come into this game really struggling this season and are two of the worst teams in the MLB. On a positive note, Detroit has been playing better lately and their offense is starting to wake up. On a negative note, the starting pitching for Detroit has had injuries and their team ERA has jumped up. The Tigers are projected to get Michael Pineda back from the IL, which will help them immensely. I like how Detroit has played recently and am taking them in this game at home.
