RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Melvin Mercedes.

2015

While Mercedes did make his major league debut last year, it was short-lived, as he made just one two-inning appearance for the Tigers. The rest of his season was spent with Triple-A Toledo, where he worked solely out of the bullpen. The 24-year-old righty has been brought along slowly through Detroitís system with just 85.1 innings of work at the higher levels of the minors. His overall numbers in the minors havenít been pretty, but Detroit remains intrigued by Mercedesí potential. His No. 1 pitch is a fastball with sinking action that sits around 92-94 mph with the ability to hit the high-90s on occasion. He also works in a plus-slider and improving changeup. While Mercedes could likely use some additional time in the minors to refine his approach on the mound, heís expected to get a long look this spring. Even if he doesnít nab an Opening Day roster spot, Mercedes will likely be one of Detroitís top in-season options for a promotion.

2014

After a rough start in his first couple seasons in the Tigersí system, Mercedes has righted the ship the past two years to become an intriguing bullpen prospect for Detroit. Mercedes split time between High-A Lakeland and Double-A Erie in 2013, finishing 5-2 with a 1.19 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 50 appearances. While his strikeout rate (7.8 K/9) wasnít particularly impressive, Mercedesí combination of a heavy fastball that touches 97 mph and a plus slider hints at an improvement in whiffs as he develops as a pitcher. With just 26 appearances at Double-A under his belt, Mercedes will likely be ticketed to stops at Erie and/or Triple-A Toledo in 2014, but he could pitch his way onto the Tigersí radar if the results continue to impress.
