Detroit Tigers 2022 Mock Draft 2.0: Day two guesses
Detroit Tigers Mock Draft 2.0 – Sixth Round, Pick 177
Pipeline Rank: 192
Jon Says: Strong left-handed swing. Good plate approach, draws lots of walks and doesn’t strike out a lot. Probably a DH long term because he is not a strong fielder.
Pipeline Rank: 200
Jon says: Maxwell is a 6’7 dude who rocks a dad bod…double chin, puffy physique, belt under the gut…but he also pumps 98-mph gas and has an occasionally vicious curveball Jim Price will gladly call a “yellow hammer.” Maxwell might look like a sweaty guy who’s drinking a beer in his garage after mowing the lawn who gets a call saying “we need ya to pitch tonight”…but he’s got potential to be a bullpen factor.
Pipeline Rank: 139
Ryan Says: Farr has a high-octane fastball that he throws downhill from a three quarters arm slot. His changeup is solid above average and he has flashed a good new curveball that he developed over the pandemic. His control and command are concerning, but he should be a strong high-leverage reliever even if he can’t command well enough to profile in a big league rotation.
Pipeline Rank: 180
Jake says: A closer who may get the chance to start, Prosecky has the physical frame the Tigers tend to look for with their starter selections. Velocity from the left side is valuable even in a bullpen, though, and he has shown the ability to touch 97 with his fastball—so it would be fascinating to see what Detroit’s vision for Prosecky would be in pro ball.
Pipeline Rank: 206
Chris says: If the Tigers were keeping an eye on Peyton Graham in the College World Series then perhaps they also saw David Sandlin’s dominant performance in the semifinals against Texas A&M. Sandlin’s season numbers (5.59 ERA, 15HR in 95IP) are a bit ugly, but he flashed four above-average pitches while striking out 12 Aggies over seven innings of one-run ball.
