2b. OF Daniel Cabrera, Louisiana State
Rank Among Tigers 2020 Draftees: #3
Projected Tigers Prospect Ranking: #12
During the draft, I remember thinking that I would be perfectly happy if the Tigers had taken ‘Daniel Tiger’ at pick #38. Instead, the club opted for Ohio State catcher Dillon Dingler. In a rare bit of good fortune, Cabrera dropped to Detroit’s next pick at #62. Had they taken Cabrera at #38, I’m almost certain Dingler would’ve heard his name before the Tigers’ next pick. To get both is wildly exciting, and as you’ll see, should put a trio of new faces within the Tigers Top 15 prospect ranks.
