Tigers vs Yankees Probable Starting Pitchers

  • Friday: Reese Olson (Tigers); Marcus Stroman (Yankees)
  • Saturday: Casey Mize (Tigers); Clarke Schmidt (Yankees)
  • Sunday: Tarik Skubal (Tigers); Nestor Cortes (Yankees)

Former Top Pick Finally Starting to Deliver

Casey Mize has been rather underwhelming since be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 MLB Entry Draft.

He has struggled to stay healthy and when he has pitched, he was 7-13 with a 4.29 ERA in 39 career starts in his first three MLB seasons. After missing all of last season, he looks to be figuring things out.

He is trending in the right direction going into the weekend series. Mize, who is expected to get the start for the Tigers on Saturday, has allowed two earned runs or less in each of his last four starts.

Keep that in mind when it comes to the Tigers vs Yankees odds.

The last time he pitched against the Yankees was in 2021 when he gave up five hits and one run in five innings in a game won by the Tigers in extra innings.

Thirteen of Detroit’s last 18 games against American League East teams went under the total.

Bronx Bombers Swinging and Missing

With all the big names on the roster for the New York Yankees, it was pitcher Luis Gil and infielder Oswaldo Cabrera who prevented the Yankees from being swept in a recent four-game series against American League East rival Baltimore.

Gil pitched into the seventh inning as he allowed two hits and no runs while Cabrera’s two-run home run was all the offense he would need.

The Yankees were 1-for-15 with runners in scoring position in the other three games as the Yankees were unable to maintain the momentum from scoring 15 runs in each of the final two games in the series with the Milwaukee Brewers.

That could factor into the Tigers vs Yankees odds.

When analyzing the recent MLB scores, four of the last five games for the Yankees against American League teams went under the total.

Who’s Hot

  • Clay Holmes, New York Yankees P: Holmes has yet to allow a run in 15 innings this season. He has given up one hit and struck out eight of the last 14 batters he faced over the last four outings.
  • Alex Lange, Detroit Tigers P: Lange has allowed two hits and no runs with nine strikeouts in 7.2 innings over his last seven appearances.
  • Wenceel Perez, Detroit Tigers OF: Perez is 7-for-20 with five runs, three home runs, and five RBIs in his last five games.
  • Juan Soto, New York Yankees OF: Soto is batting .351 with eight runs, a triple, three home runs, and five RBIs during a 10-game hitting streak. Keep that in mind when it comes to the MLB live stats and live betting options.

Who’s Not

  • Kerry Carpenter, Detroit Tigers OF: Carpenter has three hits in his last 22 at-bats with seven strikeouts and no extra-base hits during that stretch.
  • Tyler Holton, Detroit Tigers P: Holton has surrendered three hits and six runs in 1.1 innings over his last two games.
  • Aaron Judge, New York Yankees OF: Judge is 1-for-13 with four strikeouts over his last four games.
  • Marcus Stroman, New York Yankees: Stroman has allowed 13 hits, three home runs, and nine runs in 9.1 innings in his last two starts.

Tigers vs Yankees Injury Report

Former Yankees infielder Gio Urshela joins infielder Luis Santana and pitcher Garrett Hill on the MLB injured list while outfielder Daniel Cabrera is out.

Infielder Jon Berti as well as pitchers Gerrit Cole, James Norwood and Chase Hampton are on the injured list for the Yankees.

Tigers vs Yankees Betting Preview

The Tigers and Yankees could be saving their best for last with lefties Tarik Skubal and Nestor Cortes set to start in Sunday’s series finale.

Skubal is 4-0 with a 1.72 ERA and 41 strikeouts so far this season while Cortes is 6-1 in his last 18 games at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees are 13-8 as a favorite this season. However, the Tigers are an impressive 8-5 as the underdog.

The Tigers are 5-0 against left-handed starting pitchers with the Yankees 16-7 when a right-hander gets the start.

That latter number could factor into the MLB picks today with righty Reese Olson getting the start for the visiting Tigers.

Detroit has covered in nine of 14 road games compared to a 4-9 run line record for the Yankees.

While there could be cloudy conditions for the series opener, there is no chance of rain in Friday’s game.

The Yankees have won eight of the last 10 games against the Tigers but Detroit is 11-4 in its last 15 road games.

The total has gone under in five of the last seven MLB games between the Tigers and the Yankees. The total is at 7.5 for the series opener with +105 odds for the game to go over the total.
