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.”
