Detroit Tigers draft board: 5 prospects to keep in mind.
The Detroit Tigers have a tall task ahead of them. They will have to do their best to piece together a draft class with more "hits" than busts in terms of results. With a new man in charge in Scott Harris and a new direction in the scouting department courtesy of Mark Conner, there's a lot of room for improvement.
Doing a good job building their draft class with talent that will help regenerate the farm system is a must for the Detroit Tigers. They have to bring in a crop of talent that projects to move through the system well and also possibly act as trade value, giving Harris some names to work with moving forward.
While that's the fundamental goal of every draft class, this is the first time going through the draft process with the new regime in charge, and with the lack of excitement from past draft classes, there's gotta be some players who pan out really well from this '23 class.
Not all of Avila's draft classes are entirely horrendous. Sure, there are some reasons to question some of the Avila regime decisions, but leave that in the past; let's remain hopeful and optimistic that Harris and company can get the job done in the 2023 draft.
The Tigers moved up to no.3 in the first-ever MLB Draft Lottery, leaving them with a solid crop of talent to choose from to use as the foundation of this draft class. Check out some of the top prospects for the Tigers' third overall pick here. On top of that crucial first pick, they will make five more picks in the top 150.
Let's talk through five players who should be considered with one of those picks inside the Top 150. It's not to say all of them should be considered with their no. 37 overall pick, but these guys are worth considering in any of their first five rounds.
