Detroit Tigers Fantasy Spin

Spencer Turnbull won a spot on the Tigers' Opening Day roster late last week. The announcement came after Turnbull pitched five scoreless innings against Tigers minor leaguers on Monday. He'll open in the starting rotation in place of Michael Fulmer, who needs Tommy John surgery and can be ruled out until sometime in 2020. Turnbull posted an impressive 1.80 ERA and 15/2 K/BB ratio over 15 innings this spring in the Grapefruit League, but the 26-year-old right-hander probably won't be a reliable fantasy option. He had a 6.06 ERA in his first 16 1/3 major league innings last year.

Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin

Aaron Sanchez limited the Orioles to one hit over six innings in the Blue Jays' 4-0 victory Friday. Sanchez appears to be completely healthy and ready to reemerge as a quality starting pitcher. Unfortunately for him, the Blue Jays probably aren't going to give him a ton of support offensively or through the bullpen. While we wouldn't rule him out as a mixed-league guy, he's still not a late-rounder for us at the moment.

MLB Betting Trends

Detroit

The Tigers are just 5-13 in their last 18 meetings with the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

Toronto

The Blue Jays have won four of Sanchez’s last five starts.

Prediction:

The Tigers did nothing against Matt Shoemaker last night, but Sanchez has really fallen off since his strong 2016 season. He owns a below-average strikeout rate of 18.6% and his walk rate is an unsightly 10%. The Tigers aren’t loaded offensively, but Rogers Centre is a good park for power. On the other side, Turnball generates plenty of ground balls but this Toronto lineup crossed the plate six times last night. After each team took turns being shut out in the two previous games in this series, I like the bats to awake today.

The Pick: Tigers/Blue Jays over 9
