Returning starting pitchers in 2022 are righties Garret Hill (Tigers #27 prospect) and Reese Olson (Tigers #17 prospect). Joining the duo will be the Tigers fifth round selection in 2019, Adam Wolf, and veteran free agent Markus Solbach who spent 2021 between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City in the Dodgers organization.
The nine-man bullpen features a wealth of experience at the Double-A level or higher. Veteran returners in the bullpen are Yaya Chentouf, Chavez Fernander, Chance Kirby, Gerson Moreno and Joe Navilhon. Righty Nick Kuzia, who spent 2021 in the Padres system in both Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A El Paso, rounds out the veteran corp. Austin Bergner (Tigers #30 prospect), Brendan White and Jared Tobey round out the pen. Bergner split time in 2021 with Lakeland and West Michigan while White and Tobey spent all season with the Whitecaps.
