The Detroit Tigers were one of the lucky teams to be able to pick near the top of the 2023 MLB Draft. That means that were they able to pick one of the most talented players in the draft, Max Clark, and they also had one of the highest bonus pools in the entire draft. That alone allowed them to draft several high upside players to add to their minor league ranks.
The trick now is to see if all of these players sign especially those in the first 10 rounds as those are the picks that give the Tigers all of that bonus pool to work with. So far, there are no red flags that make anyone think they won't, but we have seen high draft picks not sign in recent history including when the Braves failed to sign first round pick Carter Stewart.
