Tigers vs. Blue Jays prediction and pick
There's no need to overthink this one. Two pitchers who have had disasterous starts to their 2023 campaign face-off against each other. Let's go ahead and lock in the OVER.
Spencer Turnbull has allowed 13 hits and 12 earned runs in his first two starts of the season, while racking up a 2.250 WHIP. He's going to need time to get back into the flow of things after missing the entire 2022 season due to an injury.
Things aren't going to get any easier for him on Thursday when he has to face a Blue Jays lineup that's a top 5 offense against right-handed pitchers.
On the other side of things, Chris Bassitt has not been the player the Blue Jays had been hoping they were going to get when they signed him this offseason. He has a 10.61 ERA and a 1.821 WHIP through his first two starts, which was preceded by a Spring Training that saw him sport a 5.60 ERA across 17.2 innings.
Let's sit back and root for runs in a game that has the makings of an offensive shootout.
