If you've been following the 2019 MLB season, you're completely aware that the Detroit Tigers sit at the bottom of league standings. With lack of depth in the batting order and pitching rotation, the next couple of years will be difficult.
On Tuesday, the Tigers had the unenviable task of playing the American League-leading New York Yankees. During said game, the Yankees official broadcast network, YES, took time to put up a graphic of Tigers starter Edwin Jackson stats, and...they're not great.
That's right, Jackson ranks dead last in the majors in ERA, opponent batting average, and opponent OPS.
Unfortunately for Jackson, those numbers only increased, as Brett Gardner hit two homers, and the Yankees knocked in six runs in the first two innings of work.
But hey, it's not all bad, as Jackson recorded his 1,500th career strikeout.
At least it's not all doom and gloom for Jackson. The Detroit Tigers have less than one month remaining in this putrid campaign, as they look to find a way to accelerate their rebuild during the offseason.
