Tigers Power Rankings Roundup: Week 3
Below is a graph of where the Tigers have ranked over the course of the season.
And here is what Power Rankers are saying about the Tigers this week:
Tigers ranked 8th - "Daniel Norris and Michael Fulmer have been fantastic so far this season, but big-money pitchers Jordan Zimmermann and Justin Verlander have struggled. Miguel Cabrera has shown some signs of life at the plate after smacking his first and second homers of the season on April 13 and 14. If Verlander can get back on track and Miggy continues to hit, the Tigers might get back in the business of contending for the AL Central title. -- Michael Bonzagni, ESPN Stats & Information"
Tigers ranked 10th - "From the back of rotation, Daniel Norris and Matt Boyd a combined 3-1 with 3.08 ERA."
Tigers ranked 10th - "Leapin’ Tigers, going from 18th to 13th to here. Leading the Twins by a game in the AL Central."
Tigers ranked 11th - The Bleacher report rankings commented on four teams this week. Your team was not one of the five mentioned. The write up includes other information, like MVPs of the Week, that make the write up worth the read for fans of any team.
Tigers ranked 8th - "One Nice Thing: Michael Fulmer's start to 2017 has been a continuation of his 2016 year (if not a little better). He has a 2.25 ERA and 0.92 WHIP through two starts.
One Not-So-Nice Thing: Victor Martinez's poor start (.195/.277/.195) is reaching the point where questions need to start being asked about his role on the team. He's looked really bad at the plate."
