2023 Player Outlook
The Tigers signed Eduardo Rodriguez before the 2022 season, and it did not go well. He went 94 days between starts and was absent from the team from mid-May until mid-to-late August. By the time that he was at full speed, the season was half over and he finished the 2022 season with 17 total starts, where he pitched to a 5-5 record over 91.0 innings pitched. He struck out 72 batters while managing a 4.05 ERA/1.33 WHIP and 1.33 WHIP. Rodriguez is still considered the unofficial “ace” of the staff and the Tigers need him to come out and pitch better in 2023 or they will be trying to offload him.
