Detroit Tigers players kick off another series on Tuesday, as the team returns home to host the Seattle Mariners. Here are the Tigers batters to watch against the M’s.

Detroit Tigers fans will see the team take the field at Comerica Park once again.

After a lengthy road trip that included stops in Cleveland, Tampa Bay and Minnesota, the Tigers are back in town.

The three-city trip was a mixed bag, as Detroit took two out of three in both Cleveland and Minnesota. However, the team was swept by the Rays in Tampa Bay.

Detroit will look to continue their winning ways at home, where the team is 5-2 this season.

The Tigers’ opponents for the next three days are the Seattle Mariners.

Seattle begins play on Tuesday with an 8-12 record, good for last in the American League West. The M’s are currently 5.5 games back of first place and are just 2-9 away from Safeco Field in 2017.

This obviously bodes well for the Tigers.

Additionally, there are a number of Detroit players with favorable stats against Seattle pitching who are worth keeping an eye on.

With Miguel Cabrera, J.D. Martinez, JaCoby Jones and Jose Iglesias all on the disabled list, Detroit will need the offensive help.

Here are some batters to keep an eye on.
