The 2018 Detroit Tigers will be starting their first full season in their brand-new rebuilding phase.

They have started to restock their barren farm system and now, according to MLB.com, they have four Top 100 prospects. All four are right handed starting pitchers with two already at Double A Erie. While none of those four will be on the opening day roster, they will be a part of the Tiger’s next powerhouse rotation.

These are the five pitchers that I believe will be the starting pitchers present on opening day 2018. They are in the order that I believe they will start in.

There are also little predictions and we will eventually see how close or incredibly wrong I was about them.

First up is the Tigers new ace and the 2016 Rookie of the Year.
