Lynn Henning projects Detroit Tigers’ 2020 Opening Day lineup

Published

on

The Detroit Tigers stunk in 2018 and they are going to stink again in 2019. That’s what happens when a team is in a full-blown rebuild like the Tigers are.

But what happens beyond 2019 is when things should start to get interesting.

On Tuesday, Lynn Henning took a look at what he projects the Tigers 2020 Opening Day lineup will look like and he is banking on quite a few of their current minor league prospects panning out.

Take a look.

From The Detroit News:

1. Daz Cameron or JaCoby Jones, CF

2. Kody Clemens, 2B

3. Nick Castellanos, RF

4. Miguel Cabrera, DH

5. Jeimer Candelario, 1B

6. Christin Stewart, LF

7. Willi Castro, SS

8. Isaac Paredes, 3B

9. Jake Rogers, C

A couple of caveats: Niko Goodrum will play either at second base, or perhaps in right field, depending upon what happens next season with Castellanos’ free agency and Clemens’ development at second. One of those positions will almost certainly be available for Goodrum. Castellanos might bite on the qualifying offer Detroit figures to offer for 2020, which is why he remains an option.

Rogers could be too green for Opening Day 2020, in which case Grayson Greiner or John Hicks works at catcher. But looking at the roster rebuild’s grand vision, it’s permissible to look at some long-term kids as being ready to go early in 2020.

Starting rotation: Michael Fulmer, Beau Burrows, Matt Manning, Franklin Perez, Casey Mize, and Daniel Norris.  

Nation, what do you think with Henning’s projected Opening Day lineup and starting rotation?

LOOK: The Detroit News uses headline to troll Lions’ Matt Patricia

The past week has been an interesting one for the Detroit Lions and it all ended on Sunday with a lackluster performance on the road against the Minnesota Vikings.

One of the big headlines this week, rather than talking about the football team, instead focused on an incident that happened during a Matt Patricia press conference.

During that presser, Patricia had an exchange with a reporter that left many media members feeling insulted.

In case you missed it, here was how the back-and-forth went.

Reporter: “Why do you think this move makes your franchise better?”

Patricia: “Ah, well, you know. Do me a favor just kinda sit up, just like, have a little respect for the process. Every day you come and ask me questions and you’re just kinda like you know, ‘gimme this.’ “

Reporter: “I’m sitting …”

Patricia: “I’m asking just to be a little respectful in this whole process.”

Reporter: “Okay, that’s fine.”

Patricia: “So ask me a question professionally and I’ll answer it for you.”

Patricia then went on to answer the question.

Steve Yzerman has officially been announced as the next Executive VP and General Manager of the Detroit Red Wings.

That took place earlier at Little Caesars Arena which means Yzerman probably is looking for something to do for the remainder of the evening, right?

Well, it sounds like the Detroit Tigers have him covered.

According to Tony Paul of the Detroit News, it “looks like” Yzerman will be throwing out the first pitch before tonight’s game between the Tigers and the Chicago White Sox at Comerica Park.

The Tigers even have a uniform ready for The Captain.

Nothing has been officially announced but it looks like Yzerman will indeed be throwing out the first pitch before tonight’s game.
