Tigers vs Mets prediction

You can make a case for the Tigers given the way they're pitching and the way the Mets aren't hitting. I wouldn't talk you off the ledge. With that said, it's only a matter of time before this Mets offense gets rolling. Also, Mize hasn't pitched in a MLB game since April 2022 as he's been recovering from Tommy John surgery. Who knows how Mize is going to look out there. Maybe the day off helps the Mets get on track? Either way, I'm siding with the Mets due to the unknown surrounding Mize.
