Tampa Bay Rays vs Detroit Tigers 3/26/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Tampa Bay Rays go against the Detroit Tigers in MLB action in Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium, FL, on Sunday, March 26, 2023, at 1:05 PM ET.


In Tampa Bay, the 2022 season was scarcely a resounding success. The Rays’ final record was 86-76 (.531), which was their poorest since 2017.


With the third and final Wild Card spot, they qualified for the playoffs, but they were swept in the first round. Throughout 24 innings of play, the offense only managed to score one run.


To all appearances, the Rays are, though, running it back. The starting lineup on Opening Day will be nearly identical to last year’s.


The pitching staff is similar as well, with the exception of Corey Kluber’s replacement, Zach Eflin, another right-handed pitcher with a soft delivery who is prone to injuries. The Rays hope to improve in 2023.


Simply, they are hoping that their stars can continue to play. Only 83 games were played by Wander Franco and 65 by Brandon Lowe in the previous campaign.


Tyler Glasnow pitched just 6.2 innings toward the end of the season, missing nearly the whole campaign. The three guys on this team that are perhaps most crucial are Franco, Lowe, and Glasgow.


It would be as significant an upgrade for the Rays to sign some of the top free agents if they could even get three-quarters of a season out of each of them.


  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 1-4 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • Tampa Bay is 39-42 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 1 of the Rays’ last 5 matches.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Detroit Tigers Predictions 3/26/2023


Ahead of his farewell tour, Miguel Cabrera is prepared.


The future Hall of Famer, who recorded his 3,000th hit last season and his 500th career home run in 2021, stated in November that he intended to play out his contract’s last year in 2023 before retiring as a Tiger.


The Tigers were dissatisfied with the results they saw after spending heavily to sign Javier Baez and Eduardo Rodriguez ahead of the 2022 season, and general manager Al Avila was fired. Scott Harris was then hired to take over. 


Gregory Soto, a two-time All-Star, and Joe Jimenez were traded by the Tigers to the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves, respectively.


The seasoned lefty Chasen Shreve, returning right-handers Jason Foley and Alex Lange, and right-hander Alex Lange will be asked to carry most of the burden.


When the Tigers moved the centerfield wall from 422 feet to 412 feet and dropped the fences in the center and right to 7 feet, sluggers and outfielders alike are anxious to see how Comerica Park will change.


Then there is the season-long saga of Cabrera, who is certain to be questioned repeatedly about whether or not he plans to return beyond 2023.


  • The Detroit Tigers are 4-1 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The Detroit Tigers are 44-37 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Tigers’ last 5 matches.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Detroit Tigers. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. Randy Arozarena, who was a reliable offensive threat since his debut, is the star of the outfield.


He’s a sure thing to have another 20-20 campaign. Arozarena is partnered with Jose Siri in the center and Manuel Margot in the right field.


Margot is a competent player overall, yet he lacks a particularly unique ability. He runs quickly, can bat average, and plays excellent outfield defense. 


He possesses more power than you’d anticipate from a center fielder who plays center field with his glove first, and he also plays terrific defense and baserunning.


He has a strong foundation thanks to his glove and legs, and his fascinating upside comes from his potential power.


As one of the strongest farm systems in baseball, the Rays have a number of quality prospects who might contribute in the next campaign.


None of these players should be expected to play on Opening Day, but as the season progresses and the need for depth increases, any of these prospects may prove deserving of a spot on the roster.


Although Curtis Mead might use a little more time at Triple-A, he is ripping the ball’s cover off there and could soon push his way to an MLB club.


If Tyler Glasnow suffers yet another setback, Taj Bradley may be this team’s savior. The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
