Detroit Tigers player preview: Joba Chamberlain at the crossroads

The Detroit Tigers saw the tale of two Joba Chamberlains play out in 2014. Which version will manager Brad Ausmus have at his disposal in 2015? For the first half of the 2014 campaign, Joba Chamberlain was a rare bright spot in the Detroit Tigers bullpen. He compiled a 2.63 ERA and looked every bit the part of a dominant relief pitcher.

Tigers player preview: Can Buck Farmer pitch out of the bullpen?

Save for signing a high-priced free agent like Andrew Miller -- one could argue Joakim Soria fits this bill -- they have acquired pitchers in just about every other manner possible. Minor league free agents? The Tigers had five of them in camp at the start of spring. Rafael Dolis and Alberto Cabrera are still in major league camp this morning. Returning veterans from 2014? The Tigers re-signed Joba Chamberlain at...
