DateQuestionAnswer
2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any legitimate help coming for the Tigers bullpen depth from the minors? Any guys they might switch from starter to reliever?
(whoisthedrizzle from Michigan)
The Tigers always have hard-throwing arms coming through the system, but the guys that are on the immediate horizon right now aren't necessarily impact arms that are going to help salvage the late innings right away. They will have Bruce Rondon coming back from TJ surgery, and I'm still high on him as a potential closer long term. He likely fits better in the 7th inning in 2015 but if his recovery keeps moving along smoothly, he could be an impact arm for them. Jose Valdez is a AA closer that has massive control concerns, but he has plenty of raw stuff and a little bit of FU on the bump. He could help at some point this season. Angel Nesbitt made huge strides in 2014 and has mostly a 7th inning projection, but he lights up the radar gun and can throw enough strikes to be a factor. One guy I'd keep an eye on as a bit of a sleeper in the bullpen race for the Tigers is Edgar De La Rosa. He's a massive dude with an equally massive fastball, a changeup that can play, and a slider that's slowly coming along. I've always projected him to the bullpen, and if they opt to make that move, he could blow up a bit....he'll get added to the 40-man roster this winter, so his name should start bouncing around a bit.
