OF Daz Cameron

Cameron was a part of the infamous Justin Verlander trade in 2017. He was a first-round pick of the Astros in 2015.

He flew through the Tigers system in 2018, going from High-A to Triple-A by the end of the year. He was dynamite in spring training of 2019 to the point of almost making the team out of camp. But he started the year in Triple-A, as it turns out, that was probably a good thing,

He hit just .214 in 2019. He got a cup of coffee during the shortened 2020 season before getting an extended look in 2021, where he didn't really impress.

After a poor showing again in 2022, the Tigers opted to move on from him this past offseason. He is now in the Baltimore Orioles minor league system, where he is off to a solid start in Triple-A.

Cameron had his moments in a Tigers uniform. His first big league homer was a game-tying two-run shot the other way in the ninth inning off White Sox closer Liam Hendriks following a rain delay.

He also robbed a home run in Cleveland last year. He has outstanding athleticism, he just couldn't put it all together. We wish nothing but the best for him in Baltimore.
