Detroit Tigers Week in Numbers: Jeimer Candelario’s Week Not Enough

10 Min Read
Detroit Tigers, Jeimer Candelario

At least there was some excitement for the Detroit Tigers this week. While the overall results were far from fantastic, the team as a whole provided some spark in some areas.

Overall, the team played seven games, losing four of them. They took two-out-of-three from the visiting San Diego Padres before dropping three of four in Toronto.

Weekly Wrap Up

We definitely need to highlight the bullpen this week. Although a couple of individual performances stand out because of poor final lines, the bullpen teamed up for an absolutely magnificent 0.32 ERA in 28 innings of work. Yep, that’s just one earned run against this week.

We must remember that although Alex LangeDerek LawJoe Jimenez, and Gregory Soto all gave up runs this week (Law gave up four runs, and Soto three), those runs were considered unearned do not affect a pitcher’s ERA. Also noteworthy: we made it through an entire week without using a position player to pitch!

The starting rotation wasn’t as good as the bullpen this week, that’s for sure. Drew Hutchison and Garrett Hill both ended up starting two games this week, with neither getting a win in either of their starts. In fact, the only pitchers to record wins this week were relievers (Will Vest twice and Michael Fulmer).

Tarik Skubal had the team’s best start of the week, going six innings without allowing an earned run. He received a no-decision in that start. Also starting games this week were Tyler Alexander and Bryan Garcia. Alexander picked up an L, and Garcia got the no-decision.

Offensively, Jeimer Candelario had his best week of the season and was the team’s most valuable batter. He finished the week with ten hits in 28 at-bats, with four doubles, three home runs, and eight RBIs. That’s a .357 mark for the week, which raised his season batting average to .211.

Overall, the team combined for 24 extra-base hits. Considering that one of my biggest complaints this season was the lack of extra-base hits, I’m satisfied with that number for the week.
