4. 3B Gage Workman, Arizona State

Rank Among Tigers 2020 Draftees: #4

Projected Tigers Prospect Ranking: #19

Workman, like Torkelson, had early success playing collegiately at Arizona State. Shortly after turning 19 years old, the sophomore posted a .330 batting average in 57 games with the Sun Devils, playing plus-defense and gathering buzz as a potential first-round pick. Workman gives Torkelson a roommate for future minor league road trips, and a player talented enough to join him in the big leagues for years to come. It says a lot that a player with Workman’s degree of skill is the fourth-highest ranked player among new draftees and should give Tigers fans plenty of excitement.
