Detroit Tigers: Youth movement beginning is great for the organization

(Detroit Free Press) /

The Detroit Tigers have a lot of exciting prospects working their way through the farm system. There are future big-leaguers at all levels of this organization right now making their way to the big leagues. It seems like the Tigers are making big strides in terms of the rebuild.

When the Detroit Tigers emerge from this rebuild as a competitive team, they will rely on these prospects who are working their way to the big leagues now. The organization is being captained at the whimsy of Al Avila and his player development department.

Whatever Avila and Dave Littlefield come together on, the team is going to run with. Last year, the big announcement was the call-up of Casey Mize, Isaac Paredes, and Tarik Skubal. In 2021, we are yet to have one of the big announcements like that. But, fans can be sure that they have some of the game’s best prospects on their way to the big leagues.

With A.J. Hinch having some pull in the situation as the manager, it seems like the next big promotion will be Daz Cameron. With Jones being DFA’d and the organization moving on, the Tigers seem to be moving towards the window of the rebuild where they start testing guys.

The Detroit Tigers showing signs of the youth movement is great for the organization.

With Eric Haase and Jake Rogers handling the duties behind the dish as youngsters, the team is starting to fill out with prospects.

Outfielder Derek Hill recently made a start at the big league level and is going to be tested at the MLB level.

In the rotation, it is Casey Mize who is shoving for the Tigers, and then Tarik Skubal’s bumpy road so far is helping him dial things in.

With the future “Bash Brothers” of this organization working their way to the big leagues, there is a lot to like.

This organization is moving in the right direction; they may be crawling rather than running… but slow and steady wins the race.

Do not be fooled, the youth movement is beginning, but it is going to be some time before the BIG names get to the MLB level.  This article is not meant to say that Riley Greene and Spencer Torkelson are going to be hitting three and four for the organization in the next month.

These players are still a ways away from this, but the organization is seeing these guys perform well and move their way through the minors. Even those mid-round picks that have a lot to prove or have tools to develop are the guys that are going to keep working their way through the farm system.

Even a slow and steady migration of these prospects is going to work out well for the organization. Expect the Tigers to continue this trend of working in prospects as the youth movement appears to be upon us.
