The Detroit Tigers will improve because their schedule is easier

The Tigers have played the 11th most difficult schedule to date in the Major League Baseball. Only two teams with a more challenging slate so far have winning records. The schedule will continue to include difficult opponents, like this week’s matchup with the Houston Astros, but as the Tigers start to play the AL Central with greater frequency their strength of schedule should ease, and some more regular winning should occur.

The start of this season is exactly the opposite of what Tigers fans were hoping for. The team has looked bad on defense, and the offense has been frustratingly weak. But but I believe all hope is not lost. The Tigers will start to get healthy, they’ll get help from Riley Greene and Jeimer Candelario, their schedule will get easier, and A.J. Hinch will keep them on the right track.

For these five reasons, we’ll see the Detroit Tigers start to win games on a regular basis soon.
