Detroit Tigers looking to find value late in the 2023 MLB Draft.

The Detroit Tigers have gone through the 2023 MLB Draft, picking their 21 names of the draft and even beginning to sign some undrafted free agents. But, for now, the Tigers are beginning to close in on deals with their draftees. They finally signed the big one, getting third overall pick Max Clark his deal, just under-slot to save some money to spend elsewhere.

For the Detroit Tigers, they are going to try and find some ways to agree with their players. However, the reality is, the Tigers are not going to be able to sign all of these players, it's just the facts. But they have some late-round gems who could wind up being quite valuable for the team down the line.

With that in mind, saving money on picks early on, like Clark and compensation round pick Max Anderson, allows them the opportunity to try and sign players like that later in the draft. It will certainly be interesting to see how things pan out.

In their last ten picks, the team was able to pick some players who have some sneaky upside as prospects. The question will be if they will be able to sign all of these players. With that in mind, let's talk through 3 players that the Tigers faithful should be keeping their eyes on as the team continues to work out deals with their draftees.

Each of these three players is someone the Tigers could possibly sign and then develop well, again, playing the lottery that is player development/prospect development within the game of baseball. Without further adieu, let's dive into it.
