Reds' Alfredo Simon makes hitter look at 54 mph eephus pitch

How the bullpen of the 2015 Detroit Tigers will shake out

It is no secret that the bullpen was by far the most glaring weakness of the Detroit Tigers in 2014 and not much has been done to improve it for the upcoming season. The Tigers acquired Alex Wilson in the Yoenis Cespedes trade and Wilson will be given a shot at a spot in the Tigers bullpen this season. Last year he finished with a 1.91 ERA over 28.1 innings out of Boston’s bullpen...
