Detroit Tigers: Minor League, Statistical Standouts So Far
Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila has gradually improved the franchise’s farm system. Here is a look at some of Detroit’s minor league statistical standouts so far during the 2017 season.
Detroit Tigers fans saw a number of young players impress in Spring Training.
JaCoby Jones, Dominic Ficociello, Jason Krizan and Dixon Machado all turned in quality camps from a position-player standpoint.
In terms of pitchers, Matt Boyd, Ruben Alaniz and Sandy Baez all stood out.
Moving forward, it certainly bodes well for the Tigers to see the team’s best young talents making strides.
This is especially true as many of the team’s top prospects get closer to making their Major League debuts.
Dating back to the beginning of last season, Tigers fans saw Michael Fulmer, JaCoby Jones and Joe Jimenez all make their first appearances at baseball’s highest level.
Moving forward, it isn’t unreasonable to expect the likes of Christin Stewart, Mike Gerber and Tyler Alexander wear Detroit Tigers uniforms in the next two seasons.
Outfield prospects Stewart and Gerber have both found success this season, and are two of just a number of Tigers minor league players performing well to open 2017.
Here’s a look at said Detroit Tigers prospects.
