The Detroit Tigers are due for some movement in their farm system

It admittedly hasn’t been as fun to follow the Detroit Tigers’ farm system this year as it was in 2021. Their top two prospects from last season—Riley Greene and Spencer Torkelson—were both slated to make the big league roster in 2022, although Greene obviously got hurt. However, there are still some interesting names to watch.

It is once again a very pitcher-heavy farm system, with half of MLB Pipeline’s top 30 prospects for the Detroit Tigers being pitchers. There are a few hitters worth paying attention to, but none of them (except maybe one) are eye-popping. Most of the intriguing Tigers’ hitting prospects are quite young as well, so they are still a few years away.

There hasn’t been nearly as much movement in the Tigers’ farm system this season compared to last season. Starting pitchers Wilmer Flores and Garrett Hill were both promoted to Double-A and Triple-A respectively a couple weeks ago, but that’s really been it. But there are definitely some players who are worthy of being moved, whether it’s up or down.

Here are two players worthy of a promotion and one that needs a quick detour.
