Tigers Take Zach Logue from A

Tigers reveal they claim to be left-handed Zach Logue Exemptions from A’s. Oakland commissioned Logue earlier this week. In a corresponding gesture, right-handed angel in jesus determined to be appointed. Jon Heyman of The New York Post reported Logue’s claim before the official announcement.

Turning 27 in April, Logue was the Blue Jays’ ninth round pick in 2017, adding to their 40-man roster after a solid 2021 season. Loggue was split between Double-A and Triple-A that year, making a relief appearance with 24 starts and 3.67 ERA, 28.2% drop rate and 5.3% walking rate. The A’s were intrigued enough to buy it, with Logue one of four players who showed up at the tournament. Matt Chapman trade.

Unfortunately, 2022 has not been so smooth for Logue. He was able to make his MLB debut, but posted a 6.79 ERA in 14 games for the A’s. He limited walks to a 7.8% clip, but only hit 16.3% of the hitters he faced. Things didn’t go so well for the juniors as Triple-A released an 8.12 ERA for the Las Vegas Aviators. This club plays in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, but parking factors alone cannot completely eliminate these results. He also had below-average odds stats, hitting 9.9% while walking only 15.3% of hitters who encountered there.

For the Tigers, even though Logue has been having a bad year, it makes a lot of sense to claim it. First of all, Logue still has two years left, which allows it to stay in the small in depth until it’s needed. Second, there’s a lot of rotation uncertainty in Detroit. Casey Mize Tommy John had surgery in June and will likely miss most of next season. Tariq Skubal He had flexor tendon surgery in August and is a question mark for 2023. The club added: Matthew Boyd and Michael Lorenzen They can be deadline trade fodder to support their rotations, but only if both are on one-year deals and the Tigers are not in contention.

Boyd and Lorenzen should be in the front line Eduardo Rodriguez, Matt Manning and Spencer Turnbull. However, Manning also dealt with injuries in 2022 and only made 12 starts. Turnbull missed the entire season due to Tommy John surgery and will be an unknown number for 2023. If injuries and/or trades disrupt the club’s rotation throughout the season, they will have depth options such as: Joey Wentz, Beau Brieske and Alex Faedobut Loggue will now jump into this mix.

In February, 26-year-old De Jesus was added to the club’s 40-man roster in November 2021 and spent 2022 as a frequently favored depth arm. He posted a 2.13 ERA in eight major league games but spent most of the season in Triple-A. At 47 2/3 hits on the farm, he recorded a 4.15 ERA with 22.1% hit rate, 10.1% walking rate and 38.5% ground ball rate. The Tigers will now have one week to trade him or get him through waivers. It’s still a double option year and may be of interest to clubs looking for extra bullpup depth.
