Detroit Tigers Target: Kansas City Royals IF Bobby Witt Jr.

Bobby Witt Jr. is one of the most hyped-up young players in Major League Baseball. He’s the #1 prospect in the game, according to MLB Pipeline, as an excellent shortstop and third baseman. He shows strong defensive tools and offers incredible speed on the basepaths, and Witt also owns an impressive hit tool with surprising raw power for his size.

With Javier Báez eligible to opt-out of his contract after two seasons, Witt Jr. could take over as the future shortstop for the Detroit Tigers. He would be a plus third baseman if Báez sticks around, and he could easily handle second base too. Witt is off to a tough start this season, but that can happen to anyone, and he has all the ingredients to be a very special player.

Those are our choices to take from the other teams in the AL Central. Let us know who you’d target in the comments below!
