2017 Detroit Tigers Predictions
Team: 94 Wins
(UNLESS: 1. Cabrera, Verlander, Fulmer miss over 40 games collectively for any reason and 2. the greatest factor; Zimmermann starts less than 16 games and wins less than 68% of them)
Miguel Cabrera- Batting Average > .360 and 35 homeruns but loses out on MVP to an up and comer non 2016 all star player nobody saw coming.
James McCann- Break out season. Voted an all star starter and gold glover. 25 Homeruns
Justin Verlander- 19 Wins, ERA < 2.60 but not the Cy Young winner
JaCoby Jones- .268 average, 18 homeruns, 22 steals, AL rookie of the year
Boyd - 13
Norris - 14
Fulmer - 18
Zimmermann - 16
Notable Players' Homeruns:
JD Martinez - 31
Victor Martinez - 15
Justin Upton - 28
Nick Castellanos - 35 Homeruns!
Kinsler - 22 with a .325 average
Collins - 18
Most starts in Center: Andrew Romine
Again, these are my very hopeful, somewhat lofty predictions for the season. Nothing seems too crazy or out of reach but you never know what the injury bug will do.
