Tiger Double Play

The Detroit Tigers are 15th in the MLB in Runs. 11th in Total Bases. 9th in On-Base & Slugging Percentage. How does this translate? We’re not taking advantage of our runners.

On defense, our Opponent OBP rank (18), isn’t as bad as our Runs Allowed (21) or Total Bases (22), meaning teams are scoring efficiently vs. Detroit.

A stat flashed on FS DET yesterday saying we’re grounding into Double Plays the 3rd most, with 52. There’s been at least one by Delmon Young tonight. I have noticed the Tigers ground in to alot of double plays in the last 5 years.

Also, we’re turning the least, or close to it.

Searching for the problem to these close loses? Tiger Double Plays.
