Ranked: MLB 2021 Starting Lineups

27. Detroit Tigers


Key Player: Jeimer Candelario

Detroit should be an improved club in 2021, but it has more to do with its pitching than its attack. The Tigers’ offense doesn’t have much going for it. Corner infielder Jeimer Candelario is coming off a nice season and could provide some punch in the middle of the order, and Miguel Cabrera remains a threat as long as he is healthy — although his power has disappeared. In all reality, the only thing worth watching this season when Detroit is batting is Cabrera’s all-time stats. Entering the year, the future Hall of Famer is 13 homers away from 500, and needs 134 hits to reach 3,000.
