She notes that Franklin Perez is close to making his return.  He’s been out since he strained his lat during spring training.  She also notes that the Whitecaps are sending a pair of players to the Midwest League All-Star Game in Lansing. Finally, she highlights the top players of the week.

As well, over at the Athletic, Max Bultman analyzes what the 2018 draft means for the future of the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers overall number one pick was their first since 1997. While a recent MLB article didn’t grade the Tigers draft very well. Bultman thinks that determination will come on how well the second and third round picks do in their baseball future. Its’s important to understand that just because a player is drafted in the third round (or the first), that doesn’t mean they won’t end up in the majors.

Finally, the Detroit News is reporting that the Tigers aren’t going to rush top pick Casey Mize to the majors. They’re still going to have him the full process of developmental pro ball.
