Detroit Tigers Mock Draft 2.0 – Third Round, Pick 74

Detroit Tigers
Southern Miss Golden Eagles infielder Reed Trimble looks to catch the ball. /

player. 63. . 2B. Detroit Tigers. Cooper Kinney. 74

Pipeline Rank: 84

Jake Says: This could be their over-slot play in my draft, re-allocating the savings from earlier to get a guy who has gotten some comp round buzz. It’s a hit-first profile that might need a position change in the future, but nevertheless a physically-advanced frame and sweet left-handed stroke.

Reed Trimble. 74. player. 63. . OF. Detroit Tigers

Pipeline Rank: 148

Chris Says: Trimble is something of a late riser as a draft-eligible freshman with a limited track record, but he’s a switch-hitting center fielder who shows 5-tool potential. He hit .345 with 17HR and 12SB for the season, and he went ham down the stretch, including a 9-for-18 performance with 3HR and 9RBIs in four Regional games against Florida State and Ole Miss.

63. . SS. Detroit Tigers. James Triantos. 74. player

Pipeline Rank: 78

Mike Says: High School SS/Pitcher who may not stick at SS but with a 55 hit tool and a 45 power that could go up as his 6’1 frame continues to fill out could be an option at a corner position. Love that he reclassified from 2022 draft to this year, tells me he believes in himself and is raring to go into pro ball.

player. 63. . RHP. Detroit Tigers. Dominic Hamel. 74

Pipeline Rank: 96

Joe Says: After taking two position players the Tigers add some more pitching depth. Hammel is a high spin rate guy with a chance for three above-average pitches in his fastball, slider and curveball. He does show some feel for a change as well. If his command can improve as a pro he could pitch in the middle of a big league rotation someday.

Detroit Tigers. Isaiah Thomas. 74. player. 63. . OF

Pipeline Rank: 97

Kellen Says: Thomas has all the physical traits to be a successful MLB outfielder. He’s a built 6’2 with huge raw power and at least average speed. He’s even performed pretty well against top opponents in the SEC. He slips this far because he strikes out a lot and doesn’t walk. He’ll have to refine his approach moving forward which makes him a very risky prospect for a successful college player.

74. player. 63. . LHP. Detroit Tigers. Joe Rock

Pipeline Rank: 85

Rogelio Says: He’s 6’6 and has room to fill out, with a good fastball and slider that can continue to develop. The Tigers really do not have a lot of lefties and his profile suggests he would be a good fit.

Detroit Tigers. Denzel Clarke. 74. player. 63. . OF

Pipeline Rank: 98

Jon Says: Big 6’5” dude with the skill to stick in CF and burgeoning power
