The first and only pitcher on this list is Matt Manning. His 2022 was largely disappointing due to his inability to stay on the field. Manning pitched just 63 innings, although putting up decent numbers.
The former first round pick still has expectations to be a front-line starter. If Manning struggles with injury or has a disappointing year, his long-term future could be in jeopardy with the Tigers. Scott Harris has a lot of pitching depth in his organization and if he decides what else he has is better than Manning, a trade this offseason could be possible.
While Manning does have the least pressure of players on this list, it's time he finally lives up to his prospect pedigree and has a big 2023. With a Detroit Tigers rotation truly lacking an ace, Manning could fill that void this season in a big way.
