The Detroit Tigers’ signing of right-handed starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann is an indication that the team is serious about contending next season. This signing is a step in the right direction without breaking the bank to do it. He is considered one of top starters on the free agent market and was within the price range for the Tigers.

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.

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.
