The Trade Return
In exchange for Wilson and Avila the team was able to bring in a pair of promising prospects in Jeimer Candelario and Isaac Paredes.
Similar to the J.D. Martinez’ deal a few weeks ago, the Tigers were able restock the minor league system with promising position-player prospects.
Candelario is the centerpiece of the deal.
A 23-year-old corner infielder, he’s ranked by MLB.com as the 92nd-best prospect in the game.
This could be sooner rather than later. The prospect is currently a .298 hitter with 76 extra-base hits and a .912 OPS in 157 career Triple-A games.
The fact that Candelario is close to the Majors makes this an extremely successful deal for the Detroit Tigers.
Not only does the infielder have a promising future, but he’s also close to breaking into the big leagues.
