The 2018 season will likely be a rebuilding year for the Detroit Tigers. New manager Ron Gardenhire will replace Brad Ausmus after Ausmus went just 64-98 as Tigers manager last season. Gardenhire will aim to get the Tigers back on track to the perennial playoff team they were just a few years ago.
Miguel Cabrera, an eleven-time All-Star and two-time American League MVP, is still the face of the Detroit Tigers franchise. As he enters his age-35 season, Miggy needs just 38 home runs to reach 500 career home runs. He would become just the second active player, along with Albert Pujols, to reach the famous threshold. Nicholas Castellanos will join Cabrera as Detroit’s top offensive players. Last season the 25-year old third baseman hit .272 with 26 home runs and 101 RBI’s.
On the mound, Michael Fulmer is looking towards a huge year in 2018. The 2016 American League Rookie of the Year will be crucial to the Tigers success the next few seasons. He was originally acquired in the trade that sent Yoenis Cespedes to the New York Mets in 2015. Expect the Tigers front office to give plenty of playing time to the team’s young prospects in 2018 in order to evaluate the young talent already on the roster.
