Detroit Tigers: Injuries and roster moves present concern for Opening Day

Welcome to the Detroit Tigers‘ 2022 season! Spring is here, baseball is back, and Spencer Torkelson is in the Opening Day lineup.

Well, with every season of hope comes terrifying concerns that all Tigers fans are all too accustomed to with any competitive team over the past several competitive cycles.

Let’s be completely honest: the Detroit Tigers’ pitching is horrifically understaffed.

Right now, three major pieces are starting the season on the IL (Kyle Funkhouser, Andrew Chafin

Jose Cisnero), and three proven veterans are starting the season in the minors to loosen their arms (Chase Anderson, Wily Peralta, and Michael Pineda).

That means that two unproven youngsters and two veterans with rocky resumes will be taking the reigns on roster spots.

Will Vest and Elvin Rodriguez, both young guns, and Drew Hutchinson and Jacob Barnes, both veterans.

Frankly, this seems to be cause for massive concern, and it seems that gracious overlord Al Avila has no interest in addressing it.
