I am now working on the Arizona Diamondbacks Top 20 prospects list for 2016. The next team in line is the Detroit Tigers, to be followed by the Washington Nationals, Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, Tampa Bay Rays, Colorado Rockies, and the Chicago White Sox.
Use this thread to discuss the Detroit Tigers organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
***The Tigers finished 74-87 in 2015, last place in the American League Central division. What are the chances that they get back to .500 this year or challenge for the division title?
***With Dave Dombrowski fired and off to Boston, Al Avila is the new General Manager. What is your assessment of his performance so far?
***What will Nick Castellanos' slash line be when he is 27 years old?
***Your impressions of Daniel Norris? Does he take a step forward and become a genuine ace at some point, or will he be "merely" a good pitcher?
***As always, feel free to discuss sleeper prospects or anything else Tiger-oriented.
