Detroit Tigers Bullpen April 1

Daniel Norris
Tyler Alexander
Jose Cisnero (Closer)
Gregory Soto
Bryan Garcia
Buck Farmer
Derek Holland

Cisnero, based on his high K rate, may get the first crack as the team’s closer. Joe Jimenez has two minor league options and he could start the season in Toledo to figure out his issues on commanding his pitchers better. Three long relief pitchers in Norris, Alexander, and Holland gives Detroit a different look out of the bullpen.

If Fulmer starts the season in the bullpen, it would allow Detroit to have four options if need be as emergency starters.
