Kyle Lobstein, Starting Pitcher

Lobstein didn’t make the team out of spring training but was the man the Tigers called on when Justin Verlander started the season on the disabled list. He was 3-5 with a 4.34 ERA in his eight starts before he was put on the 60-day disabled list due to soreness in his left shoulder.

Lobstein wasn’t a dominant pitcher but was only hit hard  in one start and was a stabilizing force in the rotation as the fifth starter while the team waited for Verlander to heal.

Lobstein has already completed one rehab start at Single-A Lakeland and has pitched twice for Toledo. He should be activated and back in Detroit in September.
