Detroit Tigers fans now know which prospects have been added to the 40-man roster ahead of the Rule 5 draft, according to a tweet from the team’s official Public Relations Twitter account.
The Tigers announced the move in a tweet on the team’s official Public Relations Twitter account.
Greiner, a catcher, and Gerber, an outfielder, seems like the most likely to make it to the Majors and make an impact in Detroit next season.
The former essentially replaces Bryan Holaday as the franchise’s third catcher.
In 388 plate appearances for Double-A Erie and Triple-A Toledo last season, the 25-year-old swatted 21 doubles and 14 home runs to go along with 44 RBI and 34 runs scored.
At the very least, he seems a lock to receive a call up in September when rosters expand as a third catcher, if not sooner should McCann or Hicks go on the disabled list.
