Detroit Tigers Potential Top-100 Prospect  – Gage Workman

Gage Workman was Detroit’s 5th pick in the 2020 draft, but he may have more upside than anyone else they took, including his college teammate Spencer Torkelson. That may sound hyperbolic, but Workman has about as much raw power as Tork, but he also happens to be a switch-hitter with above average speed, a plus glove at third base, and a legitimate chance to stick as a shortstop. Workman is still extremely raw — there’s a reason he lasted 102 picks — but all the tools are there for him to climb prospects lists. He just needs to go out and perform in pro ball.
