  1. Rony Garcia. Garcia started the season with High-A Tampa, but quickly earned a promotion to Double-A. He struggled early at that level, but came on strong finishing the year with five no-hit innings in the Eastern League Championship clinching game. Garcia can sit 95-96 mph through a start, and drew high praise from Trenton manager Pat Osborn and pitching coach Tim Norton for the cutter he has developed over the last year. His high velocity fastball makes him a strong candidate, as there is likely a team out there that might want a look at him as a reliever. https://www.pinstripealley.com/2019/12/11/21009762/yankees-rule-5-draft-preview-prospects-chris-gittens-rony-garcia-daniel-alvarez 1. Rony Garcia – He had an overall decent season, but Garcia especially turned it on towards the end. On the season, he had a 4.01 ERA and 129 K : 45 BB in 130.1 innings. In July, August and the playoffs his ERA plummeted. Over his final 13 starts of the season including the playoffs, all with Trenton, Garcia had a 2.98 ERA and 69 K in 69.333 innings. That’s about half a season worth of pitching to a 2.98 ERA with 9 K/9 innings. Garcia also had an uptick in velocity and added a cutter this season. The improved stuff allowed him to finish the season on a high note. If he come back in the same condition for 2020, he will have a huge breakout season and could find himself knocking on the door to the major leagues. http://bronxbaseballdaily.com/2019/11/second-half-heroes/
  2. Marvin Jones and Mike Evans both to the IR
  3. I believe Yzerman knew he was taking over a bad team.
  4. What complicates this draft for me is that I believe that Quinn and Patricia are playing for their jobs next year. Which makes me think they are more likely to sign a stop gap CB than draft one. Jeudy has a chance to be drafted high as well, Marvin Jones is likely gone next year.
  5. The Tigers don't though. His bat might be good enough to increase his value. The Tigers desperately need decent hitters and I believe he could be one.
  6. I think he can stick as a utility type player. Which is pretty good for the rule 5 draft. That and being a league average utility player might get him a heavy platoon role in Detroit.
  7. Jax, everything I have read states he is close to being a MLB long reliever or 5th starter. Has good command. Is 25 years old. Barlow, is also worth noting set up type pitcher. Has good K rates command can be an issue. Apparently has good stuff, but again struggles with command. Rojas is pretty advanced too, has hit everywhere he has been. Can play multiple positions, albeit poorly. Is 27 and limited upside. I actually like Rojas as someone who can help right away. Ramos is a pick if the Tigers just have to find someone to play first. He has power but not much contact. Hit .307 at AAA last year, with 30 HR. Has been pretty bad in the Mexican Winter League.
  8. Bonderman must have taught it to him Chris McCosky‏ @cmccosky The Tigers, per source, have no interest in free agent shortstop Addison Russell. Reports to the contrary are unfounded.
  9. Seems around the time we should start getting " best shape of his life" updates. I wonder if Miggy has dropped any weight in the last month?
  10. Giants losing means Young probably isn't happening for the Lions.
  11. Apparently he Diggs expressed that Davis shouldn't be a 3 down MLB. Diggs was also unhappy with almost never pressuring the QB. Slay has also voiced the same issues, which is why he is unlikely to be re-signed and traded this offseason. The teams actually appears to be getting worse every week, that is not a good trend for Patricia/Quinn. I still think they gets another year, but if the Lions start slow next year I could see Patricia getting the axe midseason.
  12. I wish I trusted something as much as Patricia trust his process.
