Detroit Tigers: 3 prospects making a good impression early in spring training
The Detroit Tigers have a few prospects showing out early in spring training
We're about a week into Grapefruit League play, and while the Detroit Tiger are a modest 3-3 as a team, they have had some great individual performances thus far. We talked about Nick Maton yesterday after he hit a walk-off home run, but he's not the only one making a good impression.
In fact, the Detroit Tigers have had several prospects get off to hot starts this spring, both on the hitting and pitching side of things. It's really nice to see the youngsters do well, even if it's just spring training.
Here are three prospects off to a good start in spring training for the Detroit Tigers.
OF Parker Meadows
Meadows, the younger brother of Austin Meadows, has really opened some eyes already this spring. He already has two homers and a double, including this 423-foot shot off a 97 mph fastball.
I don't think he makes the roster out of camp, but there's a very real chance he makes his debut sometime this summer. He just needs to build on what he did in the minors last season.
He's still just 23 years old and is a pure athlete. He can fly on the basepaths and covers a ton of ground in the outfield.
The Detroit Tigers are a team in need of some excitement, and Parker Meadows is providing some right now.
