Detroit Tigers players will look to rebound from a tough series in Kansas City as the team returns home to face the Seattle Mariners. Mike Pelfrey will take the hill opposite Nate Karns.
Detroit Tigers fans witnessed another loss as the team dropped a third consecutive contest against the Kansas City Royals. The Tigers will be looking to get back on track against the Mariners.
While Seattle isn’t the same team that won only 76 games last season, Detroit has an opportunity to get back to the team’s winning ways at Comerica Park. The Tigers are 17-13 this season at home.
The Mariners revamped their roster in the offseason, adding players like Steve Cishek, Nori Aoki, Adam Lind, Chris Iannetta and Leonys Martin to a core that already included Felix Hernandez, Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager.
Come Monday, Detroit will face one of the many new faces on Seattle’s roster, starting pitcher Nate Karns. A former Tampa Bay Ray, Karns owns a 12-7 record, a 3.80 ERA and a 3.90 FIP since the start of 2015. While those are quality numbers, a few important Tigers hitters have had success against the right-hander in small sample sizes.
