High-A Detroit Tigers Prospect number two to consider: Daniel Cabrera

The second player on our list checks in as a bit of a trend for the Detroit Tigers in recent years, which is outfield success in the minors. We’ve seen a lot of success in the minor leagues from the outfield position in recent years including the emergence of Derek Hill, Daz Cameron, and Riley Greene. The next big outfielder in the Detroit Tigers’ organization could be a man residing in High-A-West Michigan at the moment in Daniel Cabrera.

Daniel Cabrera, 22, is the number five prospect in the Detroit Tigers organization and he’s only in his first professional season. Cabrera was a second-round draft pick out of LSU in 2020, and they must love his potential considering they signed him to a 1.2 million dollar contract before he ever took a pitch. Cabrera is tearing it up in High-A this season, as he’s batting .272 through his first 162 at-bats and has an on-base percentage of .318.

Cabrera is putting some noticeable charge into his swings as he’s driven in 30 RBI and has hit four long balls in the early going. Cabrera, if he can continue this torrid pace, could very well join Detroit’s number 1, 2, and 4 prospects in Double-A Erie before it’s all said and done.
