Organization Prospect Rankings
Nesbitt has slowly evolved into an intriguing relief prospect with a power arm whom the Tigers protected on the 40-man roster after the 2014 season. Nesbitt throws his fastball 93-97 mph with solid sink and armside run. His breaking ball, an 83-86 mph slider has made promising strides after being a nonfactor early in his career. It's not a knockout pitch, but it flashes average with solid bite, though it still gets slurvy on him when he gets caught in between. He throws a firm changeup with solid sink but right now is below-average, as he tends to slow his arm speed. Nesbitt's walk rate jumped upon reaching Double-A Erie, and while he's been a steady strike-thrower previously, his control and command both need improvement. Nesbitt will move to Triple-A Toledo in 2015, with a chance to help the Tigers as a middle reliever.
