Detroit Tigers players haven’t had the best spring so far, but results don’t hold as much value as long as the team is prepared for the regular season. Here’s a look at some of Detroit’s pitching prospects.

Detroit Tigers fans have seen plenty of prospects develop into key Major League pieces over the last few seasons.

From Nick Castellanos, Bruce Rondon and James McCann to Daniel Norris and Matt Boyd, there have been plenty of new additions joining from the minor leagues.

One of Detroit’s best prospects, Michael Fulmer, even took home Rookie of the Year honors last season.

The Tigers enter the 2017 regular season with a veteran-laden roster, leaving few roster spots open for non-roster invitees or prospects to compete for.

However, despite that, Detroit has seen a number of young players perform well so far in Spring Training.

Despite overall struggles from the pitching staff, some Tigers pitching prospects have had some solid showings.

At this point, the respective sample sizes are on the small side of things considering the Tigers have played just 13 games so far and most players are only seeing limited action.

Still, a number of players have made an impact.

Here’s a breakdown of the numbers of some of Detroit’s prospects in Spring Training play.
