Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila has added significant depth via minor league free agents this offseason. According to the latest report, three others have joined the organization on minors deals.
Detroit Tigers fans have seen the team make only a few relatively significant moves this offseason.
Center fielder Cameron Maybin was shipped to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for pitching prospect Victor Alcantara. Additionally, veteran catcher Alex Avila returned to the organization on a one-year contract.
However, that’s been about it.
General manager Al Avila has stuck to bringing in the likes of Omar Infante, Logan Kensing, Collin Balester and Brendan Ryan on minor league pacts.
According to the latest from Baseball America’s Matt Eddy, the Detroit Tigers have added even more minor league depth.
In an article published on Baseball America, Eddy relayed the latest minor league signings. The article is quoted as saying, “Official minor league transactions, conveyed to Baseball America by major league Baseball for period Dec. 10-22.”
Among the signings reported by Eddy were outfielder Jim Adduci and pitchers Travis Blackley and Jake Brigham.
Here is a look at the trio, and how they could potentially fit in with the Detroit Tigers during the 2017 season.
