The Tigers had a 20-24 record as of Monday and were 3.5 matches behind the Twins for first place in the AL Central.


Detroit had two hits on Sunday against Washington thanks to Nick Maton (run, RBI) and Matt Vierling, but they could not overturn a 6-1 lead after three innings.


Maton hit his fifth home run of the year for the Tigers in the defeat. Joey Wentz (1-4) was lost after allowing six runs on ten hits, no walks, and one strikeout throughout two innings.


The shaky start overshadowed the bullpen’s six scoreless frames after Wentz left the game.

Rodriguez was unsuccessful in his previous start against the Pirates on Wednesday at home. In a game the Tigers lost 8-0, he pitched five innings, giving up four runs on six hits, two walks, and five strikeouts.


Rodriguez is 2-1 in his last three starts with 20 innings pitched and a 1.80 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, five walks, and 22 strikeouts.


The Tigers’ relief pitchers entered the game in 41 save situations with a 64.7% save percentage. This year, the bullpen pitchers were handed 71 base runners, and 36.6% of those runners advanced to the plate.


Forty-eight times and 47 times in high-leverage situations, Tigers pitchers took the mound with runners on base. Throughout the season, the Tigers used 139 bullpen pitchers.


The relief relievers rank 22nd in the league with 22 holds this season. They made 11 saves this year and missed 6 of their last 17 chances.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Detroit’s last five matches.
  • The Detroit Tigers are 6-1 SU in their last seven matches against Kansas City.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Detroit’s last ten matches on the road.

Detroit Tigers vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 5/23/2023 Picks


Over the weekend, Kansas City’s offensive problems persisted as they managed just three runs in three matches while being swept by the White Sox.


The Royals were 11.5 games behind the Twins for first place in the AL Central and 14-34 on the season as of Monday. They were also in last place in the AL Central.


No player had more than one hit in the game for Kansas City on Sunday, resulting in four hits.


In the Royals’ defeat, Michael Massey blasted his third home run of the year even though they were 0 for 2 with runners in scoring position.


Starting pitcher Carlos Hernandez tossed two scoreless innings with no hits or walks while striking out three, although he was not considered in the decision.


In 4.2 innings of bullpen work, Max Castillo (0-1) gave up five runs on eight hits, no walks, and one strikeout while taking the loss.


Although the starter for this game did not yet announce by the Royals, it is anticipated that Daniel Lynch will be brought off the injured list and start the game.


He was out with a left shoulder issue but making minor league rehab appearances. He made three starts with Omaha of the Triple-A International League and one with Northwest Arkansas of the Double-A Texas League.


The Royals’ staff this season has a FIP of 4.64 and a team WHIP of 1.429. They achieved a K/BB ratio 8.60 (401 strikeouts versus 179 walks).


With 417 total hits allowed, their pitching staff is ranked 26th in MLB. They allowed 59 home runs and 5.52 runs per 9 innings, which ranks 28th in MLB.


The pitching staff for Kansas City allowed 256 runs while sporting an ERA of 5.20 (241 earned runs).


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Kansas City’s last five matches.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 2-8 SU in their last ten matches.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 5-15 SU in their last 20 matches at home.

Detroit Tigers vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Detroit Tigers. The Royals’ recent struggles at the plate were well documented, and this past weekend was a microcosm of their incompetence.


The White Sox team ranks below average in most pitching categories, so scoring three runs against them doesn’t exactly fill one with optimism.


Lynch will likely be on a pitch count in his first major league start of the year, resulting in innings for the Royals’ subpar bullpen. 


For the Tigers, Rodriguez was a great pitcher. Before struggling against the Pirates, he enjoyed a run of six starts, during which he allowed only two earned runs over 41.2 innings.


Although the Tigers’ offense could be more potent, they should be able to win this game by taking advantage of the weak Royals lineup. The Detroit Tigers will win to a predicted score of 6-2.
