Al Avila comments on Detroit Tigers horrendous start to 2022 season

Heading into the 2022 season, the Detroit Tigers were picked by many to eclipse the .500 mark for the first time in what seems like forever.

Unfortunately, the Tigers have gotten off to a horrendous 9-21 start to the season as scoring runs has been a major challenge through their first 30 games of the season.

As the losses continue to pile up, many fans have started to pile on GM Al Avila.

On Wednesday, Avila spoke at the Detroit Economic Club and addressed the Tigers’ terrible start to the season.

“We’ve gotta get out of this hole we’re in, and I know we will,” Avila said. “And then the future will be bright.”

In order to finish .500 on the season, the Tigers would have to go 72-60 over the remainder of the season.

It is possible the Tigers pull that off, but if that is their goal, they cannot afford to dig their hole much deeper than it already is.

Shohei Ohtani ($10,800): Ohtani continues to shine as a dual-threat, and it’s his pitching doing much of the talking.
