The Tigers sent seven players to the Arizona Fall League this season, but the two creating the most buzz were pitchers. Righthanders Jordan Tata and Virgil Vasquez performed well in the AFL, both keeping their ERAs below 4.00 in the hitter-friendly league. Tata, a 2003 16th-round pick out of Sam Houston State, was the most impressive, flashing three quality pitches led by his 90-93 mph sinker and his cut fastball, which topped out at 94.

The Mets featured a heavily lefthanded lineup, while the Cardinals, in contrast, had many more righthanded batters.
