As one of the oldest MLB franchises, the Detroit Tigers have seen some outstanding starting pitching. These exceptional pitchers have brought the Tigers to several World Series games and championships. They have won pennants and represented the team with Cy Young awards and MVP awards. All but one have appeared in the All-Star Game at least once, but only because that one pitcher pitched before the All-Star Game was created. Some have been subtle pitchers who simply show their skill on the mound, others have had a unique style and showmanship that is not often seen in baseball.
This list is comprised of ten of the best pitchers who have ever worn the Old English D at Navin Field, Tiger Stadium, and Comerica Park. Most the men are synonymous with Detroit where they spent most of their time in baseball. A few have blessed the team with a few unforgettable years. No matter what they have done, they are remarkable pitchers that have set the standard for excellence in Major League Baseball.
