The keys to Tigers’ rebuild are ‘right around the corner’ from majors

PORTLAND, Maine — Even with nearly two decades in professional baseball, Mike Rabelo still couldn’t hide his giddy enthusiasm for his current team’s stacked pitching rotation.

The manager at Double-A Erie and former big league catcher gushed over the talents of Casey Mize, Matt Manning, Alex Faedo, Tarik Skubal and Joey Wentz, who, along with Triple-A Toledo starter Beau Burrows, are at the forefront of the Detroit Tigers’ rebuild.

“I’m not moving the chess pieces, but if I had to say, this is the group. And rightfully so,” Rabelo told Yahoo Sports. “They’re right around the corner from pitching in Comerica [Park].”

The Erie pitchers themselves know it’s a long process and are focused on the here and now. But Rabelo said they know that all eyes are on them, and they’re thrilled about it.

Isn’t claiming that your future is in AA-level pitchers the equivalent of saying that you don’t have any?
