As we Detroit Tigers Die Hards know. In the 2017 MLB Amateur Draft, The Detroit Tigers selected Florida Gators Junior and Tampa Native Starting Pitcher Alex Faedo. We are more than pleased to announce Detroit and Alex Faedo have officially signed on the dotted line.
Alex Faedo was no doubt a very important piece to help The Florida Gators to their first “Ever” Division 1 Championship. Faedo finished his Jr year posting a 9-2 record with a stout 2.26 ERA and a K:BB Ratio of 4-1 to close out the regular season.
Alex was Equally as Dominant in the post season. Throwing out numbers of a MLB Ready SP. In 4 starts Alex Faedo gave up just 1 Run, Striking Out 44 and only 10 walks .
In the College World Series Faedo pitched 14.1 Scoreless innings in 2 starts. Both were against the TCU Horn Frogs. Oh did I mention Alex Faedo won the CWS ” Most Outstanding Player Award”
Idk about you Ladies and gentlemen, but Im absolutely looking forward to seeing Alex Faedo Suited up in the Old English D.
