Detroit Tigers Fantasy Spin

Miguel Cabrera was diagnosed with a right hand contusion after X-rays came back negative on Saturday. Cabrera was forced to exit Saturday's game after being drilled in the hand by an Aaron Sanchez fastball, but thankfully he was able to avoid any structural damage. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him get a day off on Sunday as a precautionary measure, but the 35-year-old slugger should avoid the injured list.

Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin

Justin Smoak smashed a two-run homer off of Spencer Turnbull on Saturday, powering the Blue Jays to a 3-0 victory over the Tigers. Smoak's two-run blast in the fifth inning increased the Blue Jays' edge to 3-0 and would prove to be more than enough. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .273 (3-for-11) with a homer and four RBI through the season's first three games.

MLB Betting Trends

Detroit

The Tigers are 5-14 in their last 19 games played in Toronto.

Toronto

The Blue Jays have dropped six of their last seven home games when facing a left-handed starter.

Prediction:

Matt Moore allowed exactly three earned runs in three straight Grapefruit League starts and four out of five to wrap up spring training. Did I mention he didn’t pitch more than 4 1/3 innings in any of those outings? He’ll face a Toronto lineup that is prone to striking out, but I don’t think it’ll matter. Moore has below-average strikeout and walk rates and I expect him to be in trouble early and often.

The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -140
