Detroit Tigers president Scott Harris weighs in on team's hot streak
Prior to Friday's game, Harris expressed his satisfaction with the team's performance, emphasizing the substantial improvement in their play over the past three weeks.
“I think our at-bat quality is getting better,” Harris said. “We're staying more disciplined to the zones that we feel like we handle, and I don't think we're chasing as much in recent weeks, which is helping us play some winning baseball in the last three weeks, which is good.”
“We expected to play an aggressive brand of baseball,” Harris said. “We expected the pieces on this team to fit together better than their aggregate stat lines may suggest. When you watch this team play in recent weeks, I think it's a combination of A.J. and the staff putting players in situations in which we think they can succeed, and it's players getting their bodies and their minds right to come through in big spots. That's what we were hoping for when we built the team this way.”
