I am now working on the Milwaukee Brewers Top 20 prospects list for 2017. The next team in line is the Detroit Tigers, to be followed by the Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Angels, Miami Marlins, Toronto Blue Jays, the Cincinnati Reds, the Seattle Mariners, and finally the San Diego Padres.

Use this thread to discuss the Detroit Tigers organization. Possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:

****The Tigers finished at 86-75 in 2016, second place in the American League Central Division. What do you foresee for 2017? How do you keep pace with the other teams in this division, particularly the Indians?

****Rookie Michael Fulmer was excellent last year. What happens in 2017? Can you build a pitching staff around him?

****Nick Castellanos is still just 24 years old. He achieved career highs in most categories last year along with a .285/.331/.496 slash line. Does he stabilize here, or can he improve further?

****As always, feel free to share your sleepers or discuss anything else Tigers-oriented.
