#917/918 ‘UNDER 8.5’ Detroit Tigers (Zimmermann) at Toronto Blue Jays (Happ) 12:05 PM CT
Jordan Zimmermann hasn’t had a lot of success since the first half of his first season with the Tigers in 2016. This season Zimmermann missed about six weeks on the DL but overall his campaign has provided steady returns for a Tigers team that offered some competitive results prior to the current 11-game slide. Zimmermann hasn’t taken a loss and he owns a 3.51 FIP on the season in over 41 innings of work. His K/9 is currently its highest since his rookie season in 2009 and he still possesses the great command that has kept him in the big leagues into his 30s.

J.A. Happ is proving his great 2016 season wasn’t a fluke with strong returns in 2018. He has top 20 numbers in ERA, K/9, and FIP among AL starters and he certainly has a case to be on the AL All Star team for the Blue Jays. Just once in 16 starts has Happ allowed more than four runs. Detroit is able to post a righty-heavy lineup as they did yesterday but right-handers are batting just .222 vs. Happ this season.
Mired in the current losing streak the Tigers are batting .209 with a .582 team OPS the past 11 games, scoring an average of 2.6 runs per game. Detroit has been one of the AL’s top ‘under’ teams at 48-34-2 including 25-14-1 in road games. The Jays are batting just .238 with a 3.9 runs per game over the past 10 games vs. right-handed pitching and while both bullpens have had some shaky recent moments this Sunday day game should mirror Saturday’s game, a contest with only 14 combined hits.
