Ian Krol’s new found velocity throws a pleasant monkey wrench in Tigers’ bullpen plans.

Ian Krol came out the gate in 2014 showing that he was going to be a reliable middle reliever for years for the Tigers, making you feel just a little bit better about seeing Doug Fister depart.

Tigers notes: Krol the leading lefty in Tigers' bullpen

JUPITER, Fla. -- There's something different, something definitely intimidating, about most effective relief pitchers.

"The way he pitches, it seems like he's kind of a gunslinger," Tigers manager...

Mike Rizzo Just Robbed Detroit

The Nats traded Robbie Ray, Steve Lombardozzi and Ian Krol to the Tigers for Doug Fister. Or, as Fangraphs puts it: The Nationals surrendered a non-elite pitching prospect who has pitched a half season at Double-A and probably won’t rank in anyone’s Top 100 next spring, plus a couple of role players who might or might not end up amounting to anything. And in return, they’re...
