Here are some goals for the Detroit Tigers in 2023

The calendar has finally turned to 2023. With it, we can finally forget about the disaster that was the 2022 season for the Detroit Tigers and focus on what's ahead.

The 2023 Detroit Tigers don't look very promising at the moment. They still don't have a third baseman or a reliable third outfielder. But there's still a month and a half to go before Spring Training begins, as hard as that is to believe. Scott Harris could still have a move or two up his sleeve.

In celebration of the New Year's holiday, we're going to take a look at some New Year's resolutions for the Detroit Tigers in 2023. There's obviously a lot this organization can improve on, but we're going to focus on just a few. Let's get started.

Stay healthy

Let's face it. Injuries are bound to happen in any sport. It's inevitable. The key is to avoid letting it become an epidemic. The Detroit Tigers were not successful in that endeavor last season.

They went through an absurd 17 different starting pitchers. That simply can't happen again. Scott Harris knows this, and has already replaced most of the medical staff.

Being healthier in 2023 will help the team a ton, even if it doesn't lead to a lot of wins. The team doesn't have any depth as it is, outside of starting pitching.

If the likes of Casey Mize, Tarik Skubal, Eduardo Rodriguez, Austin Meadows, and many others stayed healthy, the Tigers probably don't end up with 96 losses. They probably don't have any more than 70 wins the way the roster was constructed, but it wouldn't have been as big of a trainwreck.

The injury bug can derail a team's season. The Detroit Tigers saw that first hand last season. Minimizing damage will be key in 2023.
