Personal

4 Years of MLB experience. 13 Years total in Professional Baseball. Detroit Tigers Opening Day rosters in 2011 & 2012. Detroit Tigers Post-Season rosters in 2011 & 2012. Member of 2012 AL Champion/World Series Runner-Up Detroit Tigers. As of 5/20, regained mid-90’s velocity after years of searching. Have one of the highest spinning curveballs in all of baseball at 3000+ rpm. One of only two lefties (Rich Hill) that can spin breaking ball at over 3000 rpm. Looking for an opportunity to prove I can pitch and be successful at the highest level. Have not had this velocity since 2010 season with Detroit Tigers.
