The Detroit Tigers are approaching the 2021 All-Star Break, and there may not be many players for the organization heading over to Coors Field for the festivities. However, the team’s two best prospects are going to be heading over to Coors Field.
On July 11th, the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game will take place, and fans will want to tune in. Detroit Tigers prospects Riley Greene and Spencer Torkelson will both be playing the event alongside some of the game’s best and brightest talents.
Both Greene and Torkelson are currently stationed in Double-A with the Erie Seawolves and will be heading to Colorado for the All-Star Game festivities. The Tigers’ future is bright with these two who are going to wind up being the team’s future bash brothers.
Currently, the Tigers prospects rank one and two on the team’s top prospect list on MLB dot com. On top of that, both of them are ranked on MLB dot com’s Top 100 Prospects list. They will join a plethora of other Top 100 prospects in this Futures Game where they can strut their stuff.
Detroit Tigers prospects Riley Greene and Spencer Torkelson are headed to Coors Field.
The 2020 first overall draft pick, Spencer Torkelson, earned himself a call-up already and has bumped up from High-A with the West Michigan Whitecaps to Double-A with the Seawolves. In 43 games between the two affiliates, Torkelson is slashing .290/.407/.542 with eight home runs and 37 RBI.
Torkelson has one of the most exciting hit tools in the game to watch. There is evidence of his power, and the kid can flat out swing it; he is going to be a phenomenal big-league hitter when his time comes. For now, he will head to Coors Field and look to hit a moonshot in the hitter-friendly ballpark.
