Summary: For a club that has developed fewer hitters than their counterparts, I liked that the Tigers made it a point to draft highly-regarded hitters. It’s impossible to tap into a players’ power if they can’t square up pitches consistently. As we look at the Top 30, and with the addition of Torkelson, you’d be hard-pressed to find an MLB team with five prospects as highly valued than the core group of Mize, Manning, Torkelson, Skubal, and Greene. The rebuild is still ongoing, but the Tigers draft haul of 2020 may go down as a year Detroit added several significant pieces.
