With the return to play for baseball inching near, the Detroit Tigers future is on display at Comerica Park.

While the baseball world slowly continues to press on through summer camp across the league, it is a friendly reminder of the sports world. The Detroit Tigers, for example, are having summer camp at their home, Comerica Park.

This summer camp has allowed their future stars to strut their stuff on the big league field. Players like first overall selection Spencer Torkelson and 2019 fifth overall selection Riley Greene get to take batting practice on the field they will call home in the future.

Obviously, this is all barring any trade, fall-off, injury, and whatnot. However, this is an opportunity to showcase the talent of the future Tigers, and it is pretty amazing. On the bump, the Tigers are getting a chance to let some of the future top arms for the organization throw off the mound.

It has to be a surreal feeling for players like Greene and Torkelson or Manning and Skubal. These prospects are getting the chance to get work in alongside big leaguers on the field that they will ultimately be playing on in due time.

The circumstances that have made this happen are not good, but it still has to be a fantastic feeling for these youngsters to get a taste of the big league park and atmosphere even without fans.

Watching the videos of guys throwing like Casey Mize or Matt Manning should just leave fans excited for how dominant this pitching staff could look like in the future.

Watching Torkelson put balls into the left-field stands during batting practice just has to feel good knowing he is the future.

There is a lot of uncertainty around the Tigers’ future, like when individual players will get their shot in the big leagues and when the organization will even be good, but this summer camp is exciting. It is like getting to see a snapshot of the future that should just leave Tigers fans excited.

The 2020 big league season that was shortened to 60 games presents its own opportunities as a chance for some of the younger guys, but the relocation for summer camp is its own element. The Tigers’ future is bright, especially after a dominant draft from General Manager (GM) Al Avila.

As the return of baseball progresses, keep an eye on the Tigers prospects as they continue to live it up at Comerica Park before heading to Toledo to keep their development/training going. It will be interesting to see which, if any, Tigers prospects get the call to the big leagues this season.
