Myles Jaye

Jaye looked like he could bring some rotation depth to Detroit, and potentially provide value as a starter.

However, the former Blue Jays farmhand had an up-and-down first five appearances in the Majors.

Joining the Major League team in September, Jaye scattered three hits and two walks over his first 5.2 innings. He didn’t allow a run in that span.

However, the right-hander lasted just seven combined innings in his next three outings, allowing 18 runs, 15 hits, eight walks and two home runs.

It was a small sample size, but Jaye also turned in a .308 BABIP, which doesn’t look great considering it wasn’t an inflated stat.

Kyle Ryan

While Myles Jaye made his Major League debut in 2017, Kyle Ryan had plenty of experience at the game’s highest level entering 2017—122.1 innings of experience to be exact.

An occasional starter earlier in his career, Ryan shifted to the bullpen full-time in 2016 and found plenty of success.

Despite just 5.7 strikeouts per nine innings, the southpaw notched a 3.33 FIP and a 1.132 WHIP.

He also posted a 3.07 ERA and a 3.97 SIERA as he registered a 0.6 fWAR.

Heading into Spring Training, Ryan seemed a decent bet to join Justin Wilson as one of the Detroit Tigers two left-handed relievers.

However, as the season began, the 26-year-old struggled mightily.
