Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila is in the midst of a full-blown rebuild. With the Tigers embracing a youth movement it’s fair to wonder when the team will be in contention again.
Detroit Tigers fans could see some more trades before all is said and done this offseason.
In other words, changes could be coming and the youth movement will continue.
For some teams youth movements pay early dividends.
The Rockies’ young rotation helped propel the team to a playoff berth in 2017, while Minnesota’s young core helped the team surprise the league in qualifying for the postseason as a Wild Card.
With the Tigers finishing with baseball’s worst record in 2017, it also remains to be seen when the team will return to contention.
It’s entirely possible that Detroit could once again end up with a top-10 record after the next season or two.
However, it’s also possible the team could take some positive steps forward during that span.
So will the Detroit Tigers contend in the next two season?
