Tigers | Miner won’t be fifth starter



Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said it’s “99.9 percent” certain that SP Zach Miner will not be the team’s fifth starter, according to Tom Gage of The Detroit News. This means there are three candidates remaining for the position – Rick Porcello, Nate Robertson and Dontrelle Willis.

Our Instinct:  Miner is likely heading to Triple-A, he was horrible this spring, but then so has Dontrelle Willis, who is all but through.  Robertson has been effective and should be the 5th starter, while Porcello who has looked good will go to the minors as to not start his service yet.

Closing in on 25 years of following the greatest game in the world very closely. I can remember as a kid how excited I was when a player that I had watched in the minors make his major league debut. The same holds true today. We designed Baseball Instinct with that in mind; getting you the fan excited to get out and see the see the stars of tomorrow - today!
