Steamer Projections Predict Tough 2023 Season for Detroit Tigers

The Detroit Tigers' 2022 season was marred by underperformance and injuries, ending with a disappointing record of 66-96. The Steamer Projection from Fangraphs predicts a similarly bleak season for the Tigers, projecting a 72-90 record, a six-game increase from last year.

Why it Matters:

Detroit Tigers

2023 Detroit Tigers by the numbers:

  • Steamer projects the Tigers for a 72-90 record, a six-game increase from 2022.
  • No Tigers player is projected to have a batting average above .300. Though a number as above or around league average in wRC+
  • Seven Tigers players are projected to have double-digit home runs, with Javy Baez leading the way with 22.
  • No Tigers pitcher is projected to have a winning record. Only seven total are projected to have a FIP below 4.00
  • Alex Lange is projected to be the best pitcher on the staff, and the de facto closer with 22 saves after the trade of Gregory Soto.

The Bottom Line:

The Detroit Tigers' 2022 season was a disappointment and the Steamer Projection predicts a similarly bleak season for the team in 2023. However, it's important to remember that these projections are just predictions and the team will have to prove themselves on the field.
