Detroit Tigers: 2020 Statcast Standouts
Detroit Tigers Fly Ball Distance
Longest Hit By Detroit
Miguel Cabrera Home Run – 450 feet
Everyone loves the long ball, and this particular blast by Miguel Cabrera was used by MLB.com in their list of spectacular Statcast plays. Tigers hitters sent four other homers 440+ feet last year, and you can see all five bombs in the video above. Miggy’s blast was the 17th longest by a Tigers hitter since 2015. And if you’re inclined to watch some hard luck, you can check out Cameron Maybin’s 426-foot fly out from last August, which was the longest out in the Statcast era.
Longest Hit Against Detroit
Franmil Reyes Home Run – 462 feet
If we’re celebrating the biggest of big flies by the Detroit Tigers, it seems only fair to look at the damage inflicted against them, too. The Tigers allowed the same number of 440+ foot homers as they hit, with Ivan Nova, Casey Mize, Carson Fulmer, and Matthew Boyd (twice) all falling victim. Reyes hit his two longest bombs of the year against Detroit, and he did it in a span of three days.
