The Detroit Tigers will open up the 2020 big league season against the Cincinnati Reds.

The Detroit Tigers have figured out which teams they will face off against and how many times throughout the 60-game season. The 2020 season is going to be quite interesting, and some of the aspects of it have become quite interesting. Now, the organization has a schedule.

It was already known that the Tigers would play 60 games with 40 against American League (AL) Central opponents and 20 against National League (NL) Central opponents. It was not known who many would be played versus which NL Central opponents, but now it has been pieced together.

Opening Day will take place on July 24th versus the Cincinnati Reds in Cincinnati, Ohio, at Great American Ballpark. A few days later, on July 27th, the Kansas City Royals will visit the Tigers for the home opener at Comerica Park.

The Detroit Tigers schedule will squeeze 60 games between July 24th and  September 27th.

To break it down, the Tigers will play ten games against the Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Royals, and Minnesota Twins as each of their divisional opponents. That makes up their forty divisional games.

When it comes to non-divisional play, the breakdown is as follows:

  • 6 games against the Cincinnati Reds
  • 4 games against the Milwaukee Brewers
  • 4 games against the St. Louis Cardinals
  • 3 games against the Chicago Cubs
  • 3 games against the Pittsburgh Pirates

From September 11th until the 27th, all of the games will be against the divisional opponents. Things are certainly going to be different in 2020 for the Tigers and all big-league teams for that matter. But the Tigers can now focus on the rest of their summer camp and preparing for that 6:10 EST first pitch at Great American Ballpark in a few weeks.

The Detroit Tigers will awkwardly open up against Nicholas Castellanos.

Just a year after moving Nicholas Castellanos to the Chicago Cubs, the Detroit Tigers will face Castellanos in his new home of Cincinnati. They will meet him six times over the first three series’.

In terms of traveling, they will visit Castellanos and the Reds to open up the year. They will travel to each one of their NL Central opponents besides the Cubs. The Cubs will come to town on August 24th until the 26th.

There will be a lot of baseball played in a short amount of time, with the Tigers playing 20 games in the first 20 days of this compact and shortened season. This all provides that baseball can be played during the 2020 season.

The Tigers have had no known issues during summer camp, but other teams have had problems with testing and testing results. Issues among testing, players opting out, and the second wave could lead to things getting slowed or possibly even postponed.

It sucks to say, but there is still uncertainty if the Detroit Tigers 2020 season will remain intact through the continuation of this COVID-19 pandemic.
