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.
