Nothing major like a trade or anything. Significant nonetheless. Organizational move. D-train was put back on the DL with his anxiety disorder. To take his place is AA pitcher, 24-year-old Alfredo Figaro. Figaro had a 4.10 ERA this season for Erie. Last year, his ERA was under 3.00 pitching for both Lakeland and West Michigan. He throws and upper 90's fastball, aboverage curve, and mediocre slider and change piece. He is the cousin of current Tiger closer Fernando Rodney. He will make his MLB debut as a starter on Saturday vs Milwaukee. That pretty much covers him. Any thoughts? Hopefully he can be a decent enough option at the back end of the pen. I've been waiting quite some time to see him pitch. I'm excited.
