Myles Jaye
Age: 25
Position: Starting Pitcher

A candidate to replace Anibal Sanchez or Mike Pelfrey as a rotation depth piece, Jaye started Detroit’s exhibition win over Florida Southern.

Since that outing, he’s been hit somewhat hard in two appearances, allowing five hits, five runs, two walks and a pair of home runs over the course of three innings.

Victor Alcantara
Age: 23
Position: Relief Pitcher

The player acquired from the Angels for Cameron Maybin, Victor Alcantara has so far logged three innings for Detroit this spring.

In said work, the hard-throwing reliever has punched out three while surrendering just two hits, two runs and a walk.

If he can find success in Grapefruit League play, as well as in the upper minors early in the season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Alcantara pitching out of the Detroit Tigers bullpen in 2017.

Jairo Labourt
Age: 23
Position: Relief Pitcher

A converted starter, Jairo Labourt is probably a few years away from making his Major League debut.

The 23-year-old wrapped up 2016 with Advanced-A Lakeland, and has so far pitched in two contests for Detroit.

All told, the former Toronto farmhand has recorded three outs while surrendering five runs, four walks and four hits. He’s also struck out three.
