When We Last Met
Anibal Sanchez put the Detroit Tigers in an early 2-0 hole and the Baltimore Orioles never looked back as they beat the Tigers 6-2 on Saturday night.
While not the level of excitement that gripped Detroit Tigers fans about this time one year ago when David Price made his first start for the team against the New York Yankees, it will still be an interesting afternoon as fans get their first look (at least on TV) of newcomer Daniel Norris. The left handed pitcher was deemed the 15th best MLB prospect in Baseball America’s pre-season ranking and immediately vaults to the top of the Tigers’ prospect heap.
Although the majority of Norris’ work came in AAA this season, he has started a smattering of games for Toronto, all in April, posting a 1-1 record with a 3.86 ERA. His two most recent outings were his best, allowing just one run on nine hits in 10 innings in games at Tampa and at Cleveland.
The Tigers’ old friend Ubaldo Jimenez (8-6, 3.73) heads to the mound carrying in grim numbers against Detroit if you’re a Baltimore fan. In 18 starts against the Tigers, he’s won five games and lost 10 over 18 starts, sporting a 5.33 ERA and 1.500 WHIP. He has been a bit better on the road than at Comerica Park where he has been shelled, mostly as a member of the Indians.
That shelling continued with the Orioles last month, allowing seven runs in just 4.2 innings of a 7-3 loss. He followed that up by allowing another seven-spot against the Yankees but recovered with a nice two-run, four-hit outing over seven innings in a 7-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday.
