The Detroit Tigers currently sit in fourth place in the American League Central and also sit a mere 12 games behind the divisions’ current leaders, the Chicago White Sox.

While the Detroit Tigers’ season hasn’t been favorable to this point, there are plenty of spotlights to emphasize and a lot to like in Motown. If there’s one thing the city of Detroit prides itself in, it’s not ceasing under a bit of adversity, and the Detroit Tigers will look to adhere to their city’s hard-working mantra.

Last night’s game in which the Tigers made three errors did not help matters but the comeback efforts, led by the bats of Jonathan Schoop and Eric Haase made for a much more entertaining game.

The facts are there. Chicago currently has the edge but at least this season so far, the Tigers are showing they are sticking around.

It’s still far too early to rule any team out of the postseason, and the Tigers could be a team that could look to make a run at solidifying their case at doing just that. Let’s take a peek at three reasons why the Detroit Tigers could catch up to the Chicago White Sox in the American League Central.
