I don't like to make projections for injury prone guys and when I do I usually start it with "if he can stay healthy." With this group of DL frequent fliers, it feels like any predictions should start the same way.
This is a special projection, so I'm gonna preface it by saying "keep in mind that this is if they can stay relatively healthy" and "I'm not crazy."
I think the Tigers will win the division, with the Indians being the only team close. This is a 90-95 win team, which isn't as good as a normal 90-95 win team because a lot of those wins come from running the table on the White Sox and the Royals.
These guys are ready to compete. The pitching might be only average, but the pitching depth is great and the defense is very good. At the plate, the Tigers will do some serious hitting. I think the thing that puts them over the top is 1 or 2 of their young starters to take a huge step forward.
