Tigers: Pitching Analysis

The Detroit Tigers have struggled on the mound this season with a team ERA of 6.73, which ranks last in the MLB. However, there are some bright spots in their pitching staff that could lead to improved performances in the future. One of those bright spots is left-handed pitcher Joey Wentz, who is expected to start against the San Francisco Giants on April 14. Despite his 0-2 record, Wentz has a solid 2.91 ERA and 13 strikeouts in just 12.1 innings pitched. Wentz has shown potential as a reliable starter and could help the Tigers improve their overall pitching statistics. Another promising pitcher for the Tigers is lefty Matthew Boyd, who has struggled in recent years but has shown flashes of greatness. Boyd has a 6.48 ERA so far this season, but he has 11 strikeouts in 8.1 innings pitched. If he can find consistency, Boyd could provide a much-needed boost to Detroit's starting rotation. Overall, while the Tigers' pitching staff has been a weakness thus far, there are some young and talented hurlers that could help turn things around.
