Detroit Tigers Minor League Notes
Daz Cameron and the Erie SeaWolves combined for four home runs as Bless You Boys notes. The promotion of Daz Cameron has been a breath of fresh air for the Tigers Double-A affiliate. The string of injuries plaguing the Tigers farm system was a factor in his promotion. Since being promoted Cameron has been making waves writes Emily Waldon, of the Athletic.
The trade deadline countdown clock is on and Kurt Mensching, of the Athletic, writes that Michael Fulmer is too valuable of a young player to trade away. General Manager Al Avila has openly stated that every player is available for the right price. Mensching doesn’t think that Avila is quite that crazy.
Our newest contributor, Scott Fults, writes that the Tigers could be active in the international free-agency period. The International free-agency period starts today, and there have been plenty of notable international signees throughout Tigers’ history. Finally, with Leonys Martin headed to the ten-day disabled list, Mikie Mahtook looks to be his likely replacement.
