Not only were the Tigers better than expected in 2021, but they surprisingly had a winning record in the months of May, June, July, and September. Detroit has an improved lineup for 2022 and features a couple of young, promising arms in the starting rotation. Virtually no one expects the Tigers to make the playoffs, but a .500 finish isn't out of the question.
A.J. Hinch was one of the fall guys in the Houston sign-stealing scandal, and Detroit wasn't sure what they were getting when he came on as skipper last season. By all accounts, his club overachieved. Hinch is one of the game's most forward-thinking bosses and a staunch believer in using analytics to gain an advantage. With some shiny new assets, he is poised to improve upon a strong start.
The additions to the starting lineup are Austin Meadows, Javier Baez, and Tucker Barnhart. Meadows took a big step backwards for Tampa Bay last year, with a .234 batting average and .315 on-base percentage. The Tigers hope to see a reincarnation of the outfielder who had 33 home runs and a .922 OPS as a 24-year-old All-Star in 2019 for the Rays. Baez has a flair for the dramatic and has hit more than 20 home runs five times in his career. Barnhart is known as one of the best defensive catchers in the game and adds a decent bat for his position. Notable returning hitters for the Tigers include Robbie Grossman and Miguel Cabrera. Spencer Torkelson will start the season at first base and is a favorite for Rookie of the Year.
Casey Mize, the first overall pick in the 2018 draft, pitched his first full season last year and was promising. He had a 3.71 ERA in 30 starts and posted a 1.063 WHIP in 16 away outings. Matt Manning's rookie season did not go as well, but the team believes he has the stuff to become a better-than-average big league starter. Gregory Soto is the Tigers' closer and saved 18 games last year with a 3.39 ERA. He represented Detroit on the AL All-Star team.
The Tigers are young and perhaps less than a few years away from competing for one of the American League's six playoff spots. The development of young talents and the addition of a couple of missing pieces could see them leap frog the Guardians and challenge the White Sox for the top spot in the Central. It's expected that they will feature their best team in six years in 2022.
Comerica Park was opened in 2000, features wide vistas of the Detroit skyline, and is a notoriously tough park for hitters. The On-Deck infield seats in sections 120 to 135 are the best Comerica has to offer. They get fans close to the action and offer access to the Tiger Club and Den Lounge. Seats on the second deck at Comerican are further away from the action than at most parks, so finding seats anywhere in the first level is recommended, if at all possible. Sections 143 to 151 provide views of both the on-field action and both teams' bullpens.
Detroit assembled one of the best, most consistent teams to not win a championship in recent history. The team made the playoffs from 2011 to 2014 and featured players such as Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Miguel Cabrera, and Prince Fielder. The Tigers haven't made the playoffs since 2014 and have had three seasons during that span of more than 95 losses. The organization has three World Series titles, in 1935, 1945, and 1968. Those championships seem like ancient history to a fan base that has seen its team near the pinnacle only to fade into obscurity once again.
Legendary baseball names associated with the Detroit Tigers include Ty Cobb, Sparky Anderson, Hank Greenberg, Al Kaline, Jack Morris, Justin Verlander, and Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera is entering his 15th season with Detroit, for whom he has won two MVP awards and has finished in the Top 3 for three others. He will eclipse 2,000 games played for the Tigers if he can stay healthy for most of 2022.
The Tigers are one of the American League's eight 1901 charter franchises. With the same home and mascot the whole time, they are the oldest one-name, one-city franchise in the league. It is believed that the name "Tigers" is a reference to the Detroit Light Guard, a military unit dating back to the Civil War that used a tiger as a symbol on its armory and uniforms.
Many fans consider the Cleveland Guardians to be the biggest rival to the Tigers, with the pair finishing first and second in the American League Central a few times in the early 2010s. An interesting element to the rivalry is that the two sides are also typically on opposing sides of college football's famous Michigan-Ohio State rivalry.
