Opening Day is just around the corner.
The Detroit Tigers open the highly anticipated 2022 season on April 8, when they host the Chicago White Sox at Comerica Park. Though the White Sox are considered the favorites to win the AL Central, some believe the Tigers could be a surprising contender, with additions Javier Baez and Eduardo Rodriguez on board, as well as top prospect Spencer Torkelson making his MLB debut on Opening Day.
Another top prospect, Riley Greene, is nursing a foot fracture that’ll keep him out a few weeks, but he’s expected to make his MLB debut this season, too. And then there’s Austin Meadows, who comes to the Tigers in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays to shore up the shorthanded outfield.
Evan Petzold has been covering the Tigers the past two seasons for the Detroit Free Press, and has been with the team in Lakeland, Fla., as it gets ready for the start of the season. He’s happy to answer any questions you have about the Tigers and about the coming MLB season in today’s Reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on the r/baseball subreddit.
