Tigers Prospect Notebook: Sam McMillan is making a good first impression

Tigers Prospect Notebook: Sam McMillan is making a good first impression

The young backstop is one of the most intriguing prospects of the Tigers’ 2017 draft class. When the Detroit Tigers nabbed prep catcher Sam McMillan with the 155th pick in June’s MLB amateur draft, I was immediately a fan. While it’s not uncommon for Detroit to opt for a backstop in the earlier rounds — recent examples include Alex Avila, James McCann, Bryan Holaday, and Kade Scivicque — McMillan's selection came as a bit of a surprise. The most prominent reason? Only two rounds earlier the Tigers had taken Joey Morgan, a catcher from the University of Washington. There is nothing...

BYB midseason Tigers prospect rankings: Intro and honorable mention

Let’s talk about some prospects! The 2017 season has not gone as planned for the Detroit Tigers. The major league club has struggled for most of the year, leading them to trade players like J.D. Martinez, Justin Wilson, and Alex Avila prior to July’s non-waiver trade deadline. They received a quintet of middle infield prospects in return, leading many Tigers fans to pay far more attention to the team’s farm system than usual. Naturally, that is where our focus is heading as well. Last week, we asked you to rank the Tigers’ top prospects. We were blown away with the response, as over...

Watch: Alex Avila Hits Second Cubs Home Run

Heading into Friday’s game, Alex Avila was slashing .138/.265/.190 in his last 68 plate appearances vs. right-handed pitchers. That’s, uh, not great. His one extra-base hit in that time was the home run he hit against Edwin Jackson on August 5. In fact, that was his only homer at all since June 28. But D-backs … The post Watch: Alex Avila Hits Second Cubs Home Run appeared first on Cubs Insider.
