The Detroit Tigers saw Riley Greene, Matt Manning, and Tarik Skubal make the top 100 list.

#51 LHP Tarik Skubal

Starting in reverse order at 51, Tarik Skubal was the last Detroit Tigers player to make the cut, just missing the Top 50 mark by one spot. The 23-year-old left-hander looks like he could become a future mainstay for the Tigers organization.

He battled back from Tommy John Surgery and has been nothing but impressed with the Tigers organization. The list has his ETA set at 2022, which seems pretty fair, he could have a chance to see the big leagues in 2021 depending on the state of the Tigers rotation.

There is plenty of excitement with Skubal, and there is no question why he made the list, too bad he was not bumped up one spot, so every Tigers player was in the Top 50.

#33 OF Riley Greene

The Tigers saw their prized first-round selection from the 2019 draft, Riley Greene, crack into the top half of the top 100 rankings. The nineteen-year-old outfielder put on quite the display while partaking in the 2020 Tigers Summer Camp before heading to Toledo.

Greene looks to be developing quite well, showing speed and an ability to field very well while he patrols the outfield. He played a lot of corner outfield in Summer Camp, but the youngster still is aiming to be a big-league centerfielder with some pop in his bat from the left-side.

He looks to keep climbing the prospect list to get even higher on his road to Detroit.

#26 RHP Matt Manning

The Tigers would have one of their prized arms rank into the top grouping on the top 100 list, coming in at 26th, just missing that top 25 mark. Matt Manning and Mize are the two most exciting arms the Tigers have, however, MLB Pipeline seems to favor Mize having him in the top 10.

Manning is a 6-foot-6, 195-pound right-hander who is going to become a front of the rotation pitcher at the big league level. He was able to get some time in during Summer camp before heading to Toledo to continue training. MLB Pipeline has his ETA set for the 2020 season.

Manning’s future rotation battery mate Casey Mize came in even higher than him, take a look at how the Tigers two players within the top ten finished out.
