Bryan Holaday is a solid backup to James McCann. He isn’t the best offensively, but he can allow McCann to have innings off or an entire day.

Dixon Machado is getting a chance to show what he’s got this September. He’ll likely get one start against each of the playoff teams. If he can generate some offense, it will have been a success for the Tigers.

Jeff Ferrell has had a great season as a minor league closer. He has had a tough time of it with the Tigers. He’ll need to be on his game to provide a few low leverage innings.

Jose Valdez has had a good year in the minors pitching as a middle reliever. He finds himself in the same position with the Tigers. He can pitch anytime before the ninth and be solid. If the Tigers can get a lead, Valdez will help them hold it.

Bouncing back and forth between starting and relieving this lefty has shown good stuff, but inconsistent control. In order for the Tigers to have a chance against playoff contending teams Kyle Ryan will need to be able to provide an inning of relief several times pitching primarily to lefties. He is capable of that.
