Predicting Stats For Detroit Tigers’ 2014 Opening Day Lineup

Detroit Tiger
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Tigers have one of the most balanced lineups in the AL, but it might be a little less intimidating this year with the departure of slugger Prince Fielder. That said, they have gained Ian Kinsler, one of the best offensive second basemen in the majors. Teams with great pitching usually win the World Series, but it never hurts to have a stacked lineup. Here's how the Tigers' bats will do in 2014.
