Detroit Tigers fans could see an extremely different-looking team in the next few years as prospects reach the Majors. Here’s a look at how the 2020 roster could look.
Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila made some franchise-altering moves this season.
The general manager traded a host of veteran players for prospects.
While the moves significantly weakened Detroit’s current team, the trades significantly improves the outlook for the future.
Al Avila’s wheeling and dealing netted the Tigers a promising haul of prospects, including starting pitchers Franklin Perez, Grayson Long and Elvin Rodriguez, outfielder Daz Cameron, catcher Jake Rogers and infielders Jeimer Candelario, Isaac Paredes, Sergio Alcantara, Jose King and Dawel Lugo.
Take some of the aforementioned prospects and add them to a mix that includes starters Matt Manning, Kyle Funkhouser, Beau Burrows and outfielders Christin Stewart and Mike Gerber, and there’s plenty of reasons to be excited about the Detroit Tigers future.
This is all speculative mind you, but here’s a look at how the franchise’s 2020 Opening Day roster could look.
