Detroit Tigers: Top prospects’ minor league stats so far
Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila has done a solid job rebuilding the team’s farm system. With the 2017 season in full swing, here’s a look at Detroit’s top prospects and how they’re faring this year.
Detroit Tigers didn’t see many prospects make an impact with the team for a long stretch.
However, things have changed recently.
Nicholas Castellanos made his full-season debut in 2014 and was soon followed by the likes of James McCann and Kyle Ryan in terms of young players establishing themselves with the Detroit.
Over the last few seasons, the likes of Michael Fulmer, Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Bruce Rondon become contributors.
Just this season, Detroit has started to integrate JaCoby Jones, Dixon Machado and Joe Jimenez into the team.
Moving forward, Detroit looks to be driven more by young talent, especially with some of the prospects the team is developing in the minors.
Matt Manning has, perhaps, the highest ceiling, with the potential to be a frontline pitcher in the Majors. It certainly wouldn’t be a surprise to see the 2016 first-round pick to develop into an ace.
Here is a look at some of the Detroit Tigers best minor league prospects and how they are faring so far in the 2017 season.
