Further building out the Detroit Tigers Draft Board
The Detroit Tigers 2023 season is off to an abysmal start. It's been nothing short of terrible and brutal to watch. Sure, there's been some things to marvel at here and there, but the negatives outweigh the positives. It's been tough early on and could very well keep getting worse.
For that reason, we continue to work on building out the Detroit Tigers 2023 MLB Draft Board to make sure fans have plenty of names in mind to follow along as the team goes through this year's mid-summer draft.
The Detroit Tigers have to execute well in this draft and come out of it with some "hits" down the line. Not to say they need to hit on all 20 prospects with future Hall of Famers, but they need to be able to look back on the 2023 draft class, and say several big leaguers came from this draft class.
That said, we will dive into six more prospects that the Tigers should have on their draft board. These may not be players for the no.3 pick, as that crowd is made up of some studs we've already highlighted.
However, these are six players that the team should consider taking if given the opportunity. Three of them are players from the prep scene who could be viewed as investment pieces for the long term. Three of them are collegiate products that could have a faster track to the big leagues.
Without further adieu, lets dive into the six prospects. First up, we'll go through the prep players.
