Pittsburgh Pirates vs Detroit Tigers 3/23/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Pittsburgh Pirates will go against the Detroit Tigers in MLB action in Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium Lakeland, FL, on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at 1:05 PM (EDT). Pittsburgh is currently 3-2 overall this spring after a 10-9 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday.


For Pittsburgh, Jose Quintana earned the start and faltered on the mound, allowing six runs on 6 hits in just 2 innings of work. Before Matt Eckelman stepped in in the ninth inning and gave up 2 runs on 3 hits, the Pittsburgh bullpen collaborated to give up 2 runs in 6 innings.


Pittsburgh’s offense was paced by Ke’Bryan Hayes, who had two singles and four at-bats while driving in one run. Ben Gamel had two hits, one of which was a home run that drove in one run and scored two, while Tucupita Marcano also had two RBIs.


This one may appear ridiculous to some, but when you think about the amount of skill the Pirates will have in their farm system next season, it’s not so far-fetched to think they may capture 77 to 82 matches. Now that the playoffs are extended, the Pirates may make the postseason with as little as 80-85 victories.


When MLB tested with expanded playoffs in 2020, the Houston Astros and Milwaukee Brewers both placed below .500 and qualified for the postseason. Their success percentage for a complete season is about 78-79 victories.


  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 3-2 in their last 5 matches against the spread.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Detroit Tigers Predictions 3/23/2022


The Detroit Tigers have only one victory in their first four matches and are on a two-game winless skid following a 7-2 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. The only high points for the Detroit offense were Jonathan Schoop and Dustin Garneau, who both drove in one run.


Tyler Alexander received the start for Detroit and pitched two innings, allowing no runs on no hits. Drew Hutchinson stepped in in relief and gave up three runs on five hits, taking the defeat, while Jacob Barnes barely got two outs before giving up 4 runs on 2 hits.


This team is focused on homegrown talent, with Casey Mize, Matt Manning, and Tarik Skubal leading the way in the rotation. The signings of first baseman Spencer Torkelson and center fielder Riley Greene, both consensus top-10 prospects in the League, are also expected this season.
