Detroit Tiger pitcher dealing with “dead arm” during Spring Training

Published

on

Daylight Savings is this Sunday. That means longer days, warming weather, and eventually—baseball. Opening Day is 20 days away and the Detroit Tigers are continuing to trim their roster before heading north. One of the players hoping to make a splash in Motown this year, in an act of redemption, is pitcher Drew VerHagen. The once promising prospect has dealt with his fair share of ups and downs during his back and forth career.

Last year VerHagen posted the second-lowest ERA (4.50) of his career. But it was his second half of 2018 that made VerHagen someone to keep your eye on this spring. In the second half of 2o18, VerHagen posted a 2.61 ERA in 31 innings after an abysmal 7.11 ERA in 25.1 innings during the first half. It flew under the radar just how good VerHagen was in the second half due to how terrible the team played overall.

So this spring was crucial time for VerHagen to prove his worth and earn a spot on the Tigers 25-man roster leaving Lakeland. Then this news came out:

Not the news you’d want to get when you’re trying to build on the success of last year’s end to the season. Dead arm is a term that has been floating around the Bigs for a while now and definitely not good news for a pitcher just coming off a winter’s worth of rest. For now, VerHagen will rest the arm, with medication, according to Jason Beck of MLB.com, and hope to be ready to continue to build on his success post All-Star break last season.

Here’s to hoping Drew gets healthy and back to form. Lord knows the bullpen could use another arm.
