Detroit Tigers Minor League Notes
In addition to promoting Spencer Turnbull to Triple-A Toledo, the Tigers promoted Matt Manning to Double-A Erie. With Daniel Norris making a rehab start earlier this week, the Tigers are expecting him to return to the big leagues in September. The team also expects JaCoby Jones to make his return this week.
Another prospect making splashes has been Matt Hall. He’s been impressing with his ‘spin rate’ while playing for Double-A Erie and Jason Beck writes he could get a September call-up. Over at Minor League Ball, the site is tracking the top prospects from the 2018 draft.
While they haven’t published the Tigers list yet, it’s worth keeping an eye on that list as it’ll update daily. Finally, Bless You Boys writes that Kody Clemens is still raking in the minors. He’s posting a .302/.387/.477 slash line with the WhiteCaps so far this year.
