Detroit Tigers: Position Player Prospects’ Stats So Far in Spring Training
Position: Utility Player
So far in Grapefruit League play, Dominc Ficociello has been arguably Detroit’s best hitter. The utility player, who can play first base, second base, third base and the outfield, is hitting .350 for the Tigers.
What’s more, the 24-year-old also owns a .409 on-base percentage, an .850 slugging percentage and a 1.259 OPS.
All told, Ficociello leads the team in RBI (eight), runs scored (six) and home runs (three).
If he continues to produce, he could make his Major League debut this season.
A potential dark horse in the center field competition at the beginning of camp, Gerber has registered just one hit in 15 at-bats so far.
However, if he continues to stuff the stat sheet as he has in the minors, it wouldn’t be a shock to see him also make his Major League debut in 2017.
Another potential dark horse to potentially make a play for the center field gig, Krizan has hit .375 so far this spring, with two RBI, a pair of runs scored and a home run.
With so many players also vying for the job, Krizan could open the season in Triple-A Toledo, where he hit .300 with a .769 OPS in 32 games for the Mud Hens last season.
