Detroit Tigers Minor League Notes
Jeff Siedel, of the Detroit Free Press, decided to take a trip to Erie to get a glimpse of the Tigers Double-A affiliate. The SeaWolves are currently 27-36 and ranked last in the Eastern League. Siedel notes though, that a defense of that record though is the lack of big bats which Erie has. He spends most of his article discussing the strong arms, such as Sandy Baez.
Meanwhile, over at the Detroit News, Lynn Henning sat down and talked with former Tiger Lance Parrish. Parrish was a member of the last Tigers world series win and is currently the skipper for Single-A West Michigan.
Two other articles worth reading over at FanGraphs. First, Ron Gardenhire gave an interview and his perspective on the game. His first manager was apparently Joe Torre. Which either ages me or shows just how long Torre was in baseball before retiring. I’m going to go with the latter.
Next up, we all had low expectations for the Tigers 2018 season. But, as Jay Jaffe writes, Miguel Cabrera‘s season-ending injury was a dose of reality. Jaffe goes on to make comparisons to Angels-era Albert Pujols. Which, isn’t totally unwarranted given the giant contract Miggy has remaining with the Tigers.
