Over the past month or so here at Motor City Bengals, James and myself have been rolling out our top 50 Tigers prospects, and then following it up with scouting reports as well. Judging by how much these were read, it is apparent that there is some interest in Tigers prospects, and getting information about them. Before I get into the nuts and bolts of putting this list in one spot for you, I wanted to talk about the job James Chipman did on this series.
A top 50 prospects series for any team is quite an undertaking, so I wanted to commend James on finishing the project. I offered my opinion and assistance at times, but James ultimately was the one who had to do the writing and putting these together when we rolled them out. It’s not an easy task, as the Tigers have 8 minor league ball clubs. That is approximately 200+ players for us to sift through, and then try and get information on to provide you the reader with as much Tigers prospect information as we can.
So congratulations to James for putting what I consider a quality list together.
Down below, I am going to list the entire top 50 on one page for you all in order to see them in the same place. We have had some comments generated rolling the lists out 5 at a time, but I wanted to give our readers a chance to comment on the list, ask questions about why a certain player was ranked where they were, or compare your own lists, all in one place. Myself and James will try and answer any comments and questions as soon as possible, and I am hoping to have a quality discussion about our top 50.
The exciting thing is, the more questions we see, the more I can be convinced that as the season rolls on, we can look into doing live chats about the Tigers system, ala Baseball America.
Here is the list:
There you have it. Let the comment party begin.
