Tigers' Jackson Jobe: Resumes throwing
Jobe (back) is in the middle of the long-toss portion of his throwing program, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Jobe was diagnosed with lumbar spine inflammation back in mid-March and is expected to miss at least half of the season. The 20-year-old is a top-100 prospect but has a lot of catching up to do to get back on track.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jackson Jobe: Diagnosed with lumbar injury
Jobe was diagnosed Thursday with lumbar spine inflammation and will be sidelined 3-to-6 months, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Jobe battled back discomfort down the stretch last year at High-A West Michigan, and he apparently aggravated the issue in Tigers camp this spring. The 20-year-old right-hander is in danger of missing most of the 2023 minor-league season. He was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft out of a high school in Oklahoma City.... See More ...

Tigers' Jackson Jobe: Looks sharp in High-A debut
Jobe (back) struck out three and allowed an earned run on four hits and one walk over five innings Saturday in his start with High-A West Michigan.
After receiving a promotion from Single-A Lakeland late last week, Jobe had been scheduled to make his High-A debut Wednesday, only to be pushed off his scheduled start due to back soreness. Jobe needed only a few extra days to move past the issue, and he was able to turn in a productive first outing for West Michigan. The 20-year-old right-hander pumped in 45 of his 67 pitches for strikes on the day.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jackson Jobe: Scratched ahead of High-A debut
High-A West Michigan scratched Jobe from his scheduled start Wednesday due to a sore back, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
The No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 First-Year Player Draft won't be making his High-A debut after he apparently slept wrong on his back overnight, but the Tigers are optimistic that Jobe will be able to take the hill later this weekend, according to director of player development Ryan Garko. Prior to receiving a promotion to West Michigan, Jobe compiled a 4.52 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 71:25 K:BB across 61.2 innings at Single-A Lakeland.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jackson Jobe: Bumped to High-A
Jobe was promoted to High-A West Michigan on Thursday.
Jobe completed 61.2 innings at Single-A Lakeland before being bumped up a level. He posted only a 4.52 ERA but also maintained a 71:25 K:BB across 61.2 innings. Jobe is still a few years away from the majors but has shown flashes of the skills that caused Detroit to pick him third overall in the 2021 Amateur Draft.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jackson Jobe: So-so results in Single-A
Jobe has a 4.60 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 34:16 K:BB through 29.1 innings (10 starts) for Single-A Lakeland.
The Tigers have been stretching him out a bit more recently, as his last two starts have been his longest of the season, but Jobe hasn't really popped even in short bursts. His strikeout rate is good but falls short of spectacular, while his walk rate is rough and he's been fairly hittable. That said, it's still very early in the 19-year-old righty's career, so there's no reason to count him out after less than 30 pro innings. It's increasingly clear that Jobe's going to be brought up the ladder slowly.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jackson Jobe: Building up in early going
Jobe has started two games so far for Single-A Lakeland, logging three scoreless innings with four strikeouts.
The Tigers have started Jobe off slowly as they'd like to build him up and see if he can pitch into September, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. The 19-year-old was the third overall pick in the 2021 first-year player draft and has ace upside, though he's still a few years away from the majors.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jackson Jobe: Starting 2022 in Low-A
Jobe will open this season at Low-A Lakeland and will have his innings limited, the Detroit Free Press reports.
After going third overall in the 2021 Draft, Jobe didn't get into any minor-league action last year, but he's impressed as usual this spring. With a high-90s fastball, a slider with wicked spin and a refined changeup, he's well ahead of your typical 19-year-old. Jobe has ace upside, so the real question is whether he can stay healthy and maintain his command as he climbs through the minors. Don't count on seeing him in Detroit until 2024 at best, though....
