It’s No secret the Detroit Tigers need to hit the reset button and implement the rebuild process in Motown As Soon As Possible. The baseball god’s have made it clear the Detroit Tigers team we’ve all grown to love and supported through A.L. Division Titles and winning the American League Pennant, But with the good must come the bad like being swept out of the World Series, too losing in the ALCS one thing remains the same Ride Or Die Tigers Fans have never given up on the organization.
So when Major League Baseball released it’s mid-season prospects ranks with 3 Detroit Tigers RHP prospects for the first time since 2012 , Our own 3rd baseman Nicholas Castellanos was ranked #51 , Jacob Turner #15 who was traded away that summer to the Florida Marlins in the Anibal Sanchez deal, We all remember the kid Drew Smyly he played a part in the Tigers World Series run that season, he was ranked at #82.
This year’s mid-season ranked Tigers prospects will join Kyle Funkhouser in the top 100. Matthew Manning #72 Detroit drafted in 2016 and has been in the top 100 ever since, Jumping 2 spots from last seasons #74 rank. Manning holds a 1-1 record with a 2.70 ERA, striking out 27 in 23 1/3 inning’s. Keep an eye out Matt should be a household name very soon.
Another RHP Alex Faedo drafted just this year and Ranked #78 and he hasn’t even stepped onto a MLB field yet. The stud Florida Gator starter helped lead the University of Florida to their 1st College World Series Title in school history back in June. So he’s not expected to see any action until next spring. I’m Highly anticipating seeing Faedo in action. He has great stuff and could be MLB Ready in the near future.
Than we have the Detroit Tigers 2015 draft pick Hard throwing Beau Burrow he Rank #99, don’t let the edgy rank fool you. Beau is having a Dominate first half down in Double-A Erie, Earning himself a trip to the All-Stars Futures game. Burrow is sporting a 7-6 record with a 2.65 ERA and 95 K’S over 98 1/3 innings. I have no doubt All 4 prospect’s will be vital to rebuilding Detroit’s Aging rotation.
The Detroit Tigers have finally replenished their minor league system full of young talent just waiting to bust out. Jacoby Jones and Dixon Machado 2 of our highest prospect’s that could soon see full time roles with the Tigers Big League club. The Present seem’s bleak, But the Future is bright Detroit Tigers Fans. Stay Loyal through the rebuild as I know We all will. Just a heads up Change is upon us, And we are all in this together.
