Detroit Tigers fans will be hoping for more of the same when the Tigers, currently on a two-game winning streak, head to Tampa Bay to face the Rays. Jordan Zimmermann will start.
Detroit Tigers players rebounded nicely from being swept by Cleveland by taking a brief, two-game series against the Miami Marlins.
The Tigers will look to continue the team’s winning ways when they match up with yet another Florida-based club. Detroit is in Tampa Bay to open a four-game series with the Rays. The set kicks off a road trip that also includes stops in Cleveland and Toronto.
The former National has only faced the Rays three times in his career. Over those three starts, he owns a 1-1 record and a 3.06 ERA. The pitcher has also accumulated 17 strikeouts in 17.2 innings pitched versus Tampa Bay.
Only five players on the Rays’ current roster have more than four at-bats against Zimmermann. Of the five, only Curt Casali has a batting average over .250. Logan Morrison does have three home runs in his career versus Detroit’s starter, but he also owns a .238 on-base percentage lifetime against the right-hander.
