Kade Scivicque was drafted in 2015 by the Tigers and was traded to the Atlanta Braves, released and is now back with the Tigers. He is no top prospect, but he could bridge a gap before a signing, or before a younger player like Morgan is ready.
After spending four years with Lousiana State University, Kade Scivicque was drafted and sent to the minors where he played in Low-A and then High-A with the Lakeland club. He was then traded to the Braves in exchange for Erick Aybar, with Atlanta’s minor league affiliates he spent time with the Double-A and Triple-A clubs. Now back with the Tigers, Scivicque has been assigned to the Double-A club to back up Rogers.
In 2019, Scivicque has only been able to play in four games this season where he has totaled six hits through fifteen at-bats for Double-A Erie. Scivicque is not a top prospect, but he is someone who can try to work his way up to Triple-A and maybe earn a shot at the big league club. By no means can Scivicque become an everyday starter for the Tigers, but he could be able to become a backup catcher or journeyman.
Looking into Scivicque’s defense, throughout his career he has managed to throw out around 30% of the runners who attempt to steal bases against him. His framing has been consistently average throughout his minor league career. Scivicque has not made it to the big leagues throughout his career.
The future may not be bright, but if the Detroit Tigers come to a time where Scivicque is starting, the best option is most likely going to be to sign a catcher to complete our lineup; however, he is a possibility and is worth talking about since he is on the Double-A club.
