Tiger fans may have something to look forward to next season as far as their pitching staff is concerned. #Pitching was the major reason for the decline of the Tigers this past season as their staff was abysmal to say the least. Right-hander Montreal Robertson has been a bright spot in the fall season. He has been outstanding.
Scottsdale, Ariz. — As far as the Tigers are concerned, one of the biggest success stories of this Arizona Fall League season has been right-hander Montreal Robertson.“He’s a good story,” said Tigers minor league pitching coordinator A.J. Sager.Robertson, a 6-4, 205-pounder whose fastball is hitting 97 mph, has allowed just two runs and six hits in 82/3 innings this fall. His WHIP is 0.69 and he’s struck out six with no walks. This from a guy who was stunned speechless when he got the call that he’d been invited to play in the league, which showcases the top prospects in baseball.
