Tigers in EST: Sean Finefrock

After nearly a year and a half absence from professional baseball, Sean Finefrock has returned to the Tigers to resume his career.  According to TigsTown.com, the 23-year-old right-hander is attempting a comeback after having retired from baseball in 2008.  Prior to his retirement, Finefrock spent two seasons in the Tigers minor league system.

Finefrock was drafted by the Tigers in the 35th round of the 2007 MLB draft out of Butler Community College.  TigsTown.com’s Jason Avery wrote on draft day that Finefrock had a 90-91 mph fastball and a good slider.

After signing a professional contract, Finefrock was assigned to the Gulf Coast League Tigers.  He made two starts with the GCL Tigers before being promoted to the New York-Penn League and inserted into the Oneonta rotation.  Finefrock would go on to pitch 52.2 innings for Oneonta in 2007, posting a 5.98 ERA to go with 30 strikeouts and 21 walks.

Finefrock was sent back to Oneonta in 2008, but he appeared in only 6 games, pitching 9.0 innings out of the bullpen.  After the season, he announced his retirement and remained out of baseball until this spring when he joined the Tigers in extended spring training.

Finefrock will probably be assigned to Connecticut when the New York-Penn League season begins, though a short stint in the Gulf Coast League would not be surprising considering his time away from the game.
