Monday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take #919 Detroit Tigers over Cleveland Indians (Monday, 4:05pm EST) Two aces square off in Cleveland when Corey Kluber and the Indians host David Price and the Tigers. Kluber has been one of the biggest surprises of the 2014 season, ascending from mediocrity to one of the best pitchers in baseball all in one year. He still doesn’t get the full attention that he deserves, but at 13-8 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.10 WHIP he should garner more fanfare. Price certainly gets his share as he has established himself among the best in the sport over the last few seasons. He also got quite a bit of attention last week when he was bombed for eight runs on 12 hits in two innings of work against the Yankees. That included a record nine straight hits in the third inning. Price will certainly be looking to redeem himself after his worst outing of his career, and the Indians aren’t particularly good against southpaws. That sets up the Tigers nicely as they shouldn’t need much from their offense. Kluber will certainly be tough to crack, but he hasn’t been nearly as sharp over his last few outings. Maybe he is wearing down after the best season of his career. In any case, the Tigers as underdogs with a motivated Price on the hill certainly appear to have some value. Take Detroit as our free play selection.
