Detroit Tigers minor league players Drew Smith, Sandy Baez, Derek Hill, Tyler Alexander and Mike Gerber all show promise. They check in at #10-#6 on Motor City Bengals’ list of the top Tigers prospects.

Detroit Tigers fans have seen a number of veteran teams in recent memory.

Much of the team’s success in the past decade have been because of veteran standouts like Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander and Victor Martinez.

While the trio still play key roles on the roster, Detroit has integrated some exciting young talent into the team.

Michael Fulmer has shown that he’s already a frontline pitcher despite having just one season of Major League experience.

Elsewhere, Nick Castellanos is developing into a middle-of-the-order bat.

What’s more, James McCann, Bruce Rondon, Daniel Norris and Matt Boyd have all become consistent contributors.

With top prospects JaCoby Jones and Joe Jimenez likely becoming a part of the Major League roster in the next season, the Tigers are getting younger by the year.

Jones and Jimenez are two of the next wave of young Detroit Tigers players to carry the team into the future.

Here’s a look at five more of those prospects, who comprise the first half of Motor City Bengals’ top 10 Tigers prospects.
