Detroit Tigers free agent target: Adam Duvall

Position – OF

Age on Opening Day – 32

When fans think of modern power hitters they probably don’t put Adam Duvall near the top of their list. But since he began to get regular playing time in 2016 he’s been one of the more prolific power bats in baseball. His .297 Isolated Power over the last two seasons ranks 10th overall, and he hits a home run about once every 13 trips to the plate. A crowded Braves outfield meant he spent most of 2019 in Triple-A (where he mashed), and he doesn’t offer a ton else. He’s a pretty good athlete who is surprisingly fast, but he rarely walks and he’s a below-average defender. Still, the Detroit Tigers need power and outfielders, and Adam Duvall would help solve both problems.
