High-A Detroit Tigers Prospect number three to consider: Bryant Packard

The Detroit Tigers have some exceptional outfield talent littered throughout their minor league system, and Bryant Packard could get a nod at a possible promotion to the upper minors. Bryant Packard, 23, is Detroit’s number 19 overall prospect in their minor league system and ranks as the seventh-ranked outfielder in the system.

Packard was a fifth-round draft pick by the Detroit Tigers back in 2019, and he has been tearing the cover off the ball in 2021 to this point. Packard, this season, has 30 hits, 19 runs scored, three home runs, 14 RBI, five stolen bases, a .256 batting average, and a staggering .360 on-base percentage through his first 117 at-bats in High-A.

Packard is also a very good outfielder as he can play all three positions in the outfield, and is nearly perfect in doing so, committing just one error in his minor league baseball career to this point. Bryant Packard is a year older than Daniel Cabrera, so he could get the nod to join some exceptional talent in Erie before Cabrera does if he continues to show consistent growth.
