Tigers Starting Pitcher: Alfredo Figaro (1-0) 3.60 ERA

Last outing Figaro struck out 7 Brewers over 5 innings to earn his first career win in his first career start last Saturday. After witnessing him in person a week ago, this young righty has a mean fastball topping out at around 97mph. He will look to put together back to back quality starts and move to 2-0 in his career.

 

Final thoughts: It would be really great for this team if Figaro can e another solid outing to give this team another good young starter. The Tigers can stretch their lead in the AL Central back to 5 games because of the Twins loss earlier today at St. Louis. The Tigers can move back to 10 games over .500 with a win which is a season high.
