The Detroit Tigers do not have a strong farm system, but the organization has a lot of prospects who performed well last season.

With Rondon out, Chamberlain will be Tigers' setup man

Bruce Rondon will soon undergo Tommy John surgery and won't come back to the bullpen until next season. It might even be two years before Rondon returns to his full fire-balling form, and that leaves a hole at the back end of the bullpen for the Detroit Tigers. It's not a gaping hole, however. Signing Joba Chamberlain -- a proven, late-inning reliever in his seven seasons with the...

All that was missing from Detroit Tigers practices and games was a circus barker: "Step right up and see the pitcher with an unbelievable 103 mph heater!" Rondon was given a chance to become the closer last season, but...

Detroit Tigers: three ‘x-factors’ for 2014

In baseball, most teams enter the season with known quantities, unproven youngsters, and some guys who need to step up, and the Detroit Tigers are no different. Detroit’s mix of lethal starting pitching and legitimate star power on offense is a given, and should be enough to put them in the pennant chase. But if a few key players are able to step and produce above their recent...
