Roberto Novoa Report

Roberto Novoa, RHP, Detroit Tigers
Signed as an undrafted free agent, 1999, Dominican Republic
Bats R/Throws R
25 YO, 6'5", 200 lbs

After being a starter for his entire professional career, he's been moved to the bullpen by the Tigers, and it looks like a good choice. He posted a 2.96 ERA with 59 K's, 19 walks, and 63 hits allowed in 79 innings pitched over 41 relief appearances for Erie. He's a two pitch pitcher with a mid-90's fastball and decent breaking ball. His control is good. He should be pretty good. There are dozens of pitchers like Novoa who quietly climb the minor league ladder and end up in major league bullpens with hardly anybody noticing them until they throw a plastic folding chair at a heckler.

ETA: Early/Mid 2005
