In his last appearance against Cleveland, Pelfrey lasted 4.1 innings with three hits and no earned.
Detroit has some pretty lethal bats in their order. Ian Kinsler has 90 hits with 59 runs, 14 homers and 47 RBI. Miguel Cabrera has hit a team-high 16 homers with 45 RBI, 86 hits, 41 runs and a .296 average. As for Nick Castellanos, he’s third on the team with 83 hits, 37 runs, 13 homers and 40 RBI in 2016.
