New Faces In Detroit Tigers Training Camp

upton - zimmermannThe Tigers kicked off their spring schedule this week with a 4-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates in Lakeland, and while there will be lots of names that fans may not heard of, here are the newest members of the Tigers that we’re acquired via free agency or trades that we all should get to know.

Mark Lowe, RP – Signed a 2-year deal for $5.5 a year and will be a setup guy and was a righty reliever who pitched in Seattle before being traded to Toronto last season.  Lowe is entering his age 33 season and was lights out in Seattle, with a 1.00 ERA and 1.167 WHIP in 34 appearances before the trade.  In Toronto, he was more pedestrian with a 3.79 ERA, but 0.842 WHIP in 15 appearances.  Lowe finished 2015 witha 10 k per 9 ratio and a 5.08 k to walk rate.  For his career, Mark is 9-24 with a 3.80 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP, and 8.1 K per 9 rate.

About Shaneo42

I am an amateur blogger but avid Detroit Tigers fan which started out around the age of 7 during the 1984 Tiger season. That year catapulted me to love the game and want to write about it as much as possible. I played some high school ball, rode some pine in college and co-created and wrote Pepper Baseball Blog for eight years. It's time for a fresh start for myself, the blog, and our readers hopefully as I write about the Tigers, Baseball, and my hobby Baseball cards. I hope you enjoy!
