The Detroit Tigers will improve because of A.J. Hinch
A.J. Hinch is a top shelf major league manager with two pennants to his name, as well as a World Series championship. He’s entering his 9th season as a manager, his teams have never had a winning percentage lower than .392, and that was from a partial season with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2010, when that team was led by Kelly Johnson. Remember him? Exactly.
There is no doubt this Detroit Tigers team is more talented than that Arizona squad. This year’s team also boasts more talent than last year’s Tiger’s squad, which Hinch led to a .475 winning percentage. This team’s talent, combined with Hinch’s ability to keep them focused and motivated, will yield results when it comes to the standings over the course of a full season.
