Alex Faedo
23-Year-Old PitcherRP
Detroit Tigers AA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Tigers' first-round pick in 2017, Faedo sat out the rest of his draft year due to workload concerns. He made his professional debut last season, starting 12 times for High-A Lakeland and 12 times for Double-A Erie. He didn't look overmatched at High-A, recording a 3.10 ERA at that level, though his ERA slipped to 4.95 with Erie. Combined, he recorded a 4.02 ERA, with a 22.0 K% and 7.0 BB%. His main problem was an inability to keep the ball in the park (15 homers in 60 innings at Double-A). Faedo projects as a back-end starter, with a good slider, a questionable changeup and a mediocre fastball to go along with decent control. There's not much blocking his path to the majors, but the Tigers will want to see better results against Double-A and Triple-A hitters before inserting him into the big-league rotation.

Strikes out 12 in Double-A start
PDetroit Tigers  AA
May 30, 2019
Faedo tossed 6.1 scoreless innings and struck out a career-high 12 batters Wednesday in Double-A Erie's 3-0 win over Reading. He scattered two hits and two walks in the 99-pitch outing.
ANALYSIS
While less heralded than rotation mates Matt Manning and Casey Mize, Faedo, a 2017 first-round pick, could settle in as a back-end starter for the big club within the next year or two. After an up-and-down performance in his 12 turns with Erie last season, Faedo has shown more consistency in his return tour of the Eastern League. He's already delivered three starts of at least six innings with no runs allowed and now has two double-digit-strikeout outings under his belt. Most impressively, the improved strikeout production hasn't come with any loss in control; Faedo's 25.7 K-BB% is 11 percentage points better than his 2018 mark at Erie.
