MLB: Detroit Tigers pitching prospect said to be number one starter on championship team

In addition to Venezuelan left-handed pitcher Eduardo Rodríguez, the rotation of the Detroit Tigers consists of launchers that they selected and developed: Casey Mize, Tarik Skubal, Matt Manning and Tyler Alexander. The next guy behind them on that road is the youngster jackson jobe.

Selected by the Tigers with the third overall pick in last year’s draft, Jobe is only 19 years old and nowhere near the Majors, but he’s already getting rave reviews. MLB Pipeline ranks him as the 46th best prospect in baseball and Baseball America ranks him as 79th:

Journalist Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press spoke to a scout, who had nothing but superlatives to offer about the right-handed pitcher, and gave Jobe’s fastball and changeup a 70 and his breaking ball an 80, in the headhunter scale of 20-80.

Jobe is still pretty young, which means Tigers fans will have to be patient, but the scout offers this as a ceiling:

If everything lines up, he’s the No. 1 starter in the majors on a championship team.”

This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterruptedly since 2009), signatures of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, although as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I have baseball in my veins.

I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. This is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
