Chien-Ming Wang,  RHP  (13-6,  4.09)

Wang has excellent career numbers against the Tigers (3-0, 2.52 in 4 starts).  Bonderman has struggled in his career against the Yanks (2-4, 5.05 in 8 starts).

Keep a watchful eye on Bonderman very early in this game.  His ERA in the 1st inning is a robust 13.30 (2.434 WHIP!) and opponents are hitting .389/.455/.741/1.196 against him.  Yikes.

However, his ERA after the 1st inning is a very good 3.07.
