Detroit Tigers prospects like Michael Fulmer and James McCann have made a significant impact in recent years, playing key roles. Here are the players who just missed the top 25 in MCB’s top Tigers prospects.

Detroit Tigers fans have seen the team trade many of the organization’s top prospects in years past.

The likes of Devon Travis, Jake Thompson and Willy Adames have all been dealt to other franchises for Major League upgrades.

However, things are different now under general manager Al Avila.

Avila and the rest of the front office have drastically improved the team’s long-term outlook with the additions of Michael Fulmer, Matt Manning, Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Kyle Funkhouser through trades and the draft.

The team has also held on to top prospects like Christin Stewart, Derek Hill and Beau Burrows.

With a promising 2016 draft class just completing their respective first seasons in professional baseball, the Tigers are well on their way to a more sustainable future.

Here at Motor City Bengals, we’ll begin a countdown of the top 25 prospects in the organization heading into 2017. That begins tomorrow.

To get you ready, here are the honorable mentions who just missed out on the rankings.
