Is the Tigers lineup something to fear?

The Tigers lineup is loaded with big bats when you have Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and now Yoenis Cespedes that’s a deadly three bats.

More from Detroit Jock City


Cespedes is more of a power hitter usually he has a low batting average, but he’s hit 20 homers every year. In a lineup with V-Mart and Cabrera I think his batting increases not by much but I think he could have a career year in Detroit.


There is no one quite like Miguel he has a powerful bat even with being hurt last year he had .313 BA and 25 homers. Cabrera is going to have a bounce back year in my opinion. The only thing that’s seemed to stop Cabrera is Cabrera himself.

Victor Martinez:

 Martinez signed an extension with the Tigers and that’s great each year Martinez has been in a Tigers uniform he’s had a batting average of .350. It seems Martinez is the Tigers David Ortiz even while getting older he’s still a threat in the Tigers lineup.
