2014

For the second straight year, Putkonen split time between Triple-A Toledo and Detroit. The 27-year-old picher was deployed out of the bullpen in a middle-relief role at both stops. He was stellar for the Mud Hens, posting a 1.91 ERA with 38 strikeouts in 37.1 innings. While not as strong at the major league level, Putkonen still put together a solid season for the Tigers, finishing with a 3.03 ERA and 28:9 K:BB ratio in 30 appearances. The tall (6-foot-6, 215-pound) righty pitched in the mid-90s with his fastball, but he doesn’t focus on being overpowering, instead trying to induce groundballs with his sinking action. Putkonen is expected to once again be in the mix for a middle-innings role with the Tigers, and he could earn more innings than in past seasons with a strong spring.
