It’s an unusual position for the Detroit Tigers to be in. For much of the past decade they were adding trying to win a World Series.
Now the rebuild is in full swing and thanks to the worst record the Tigers own the first pick in the 2018 MLB draft.
An organization that loves big strong power arms one guy stands out. University of Florida RHP Brady Singer. He fits the criteria (Singer is 6′ 5″) the Tigers covet he had 129 strikeout in 126 innings pitched. Viewed as a pitcher who will not be in the minor leagues long may help the Tigers front office make the pick a no brainer.
Drafted in the second round by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2015 Singer opted to go to college. As it turns out it was the correct call. He polished up his mechanics and brushed up his slider that has scouts drooling.
He was part of a Gators rotation that was downright nasty. Paired with last years Tigers first round pick (Also from Florida) Alex Faedo. If reunited with the Tigers the Detroit rebuild would speed up considerably.
A future rotation of
May be too much for the Tigers to pass up. As they would be staring at 5 potential top of the rotation starters.
Be patient Tigers fans. They are building something that could very well end up being special.
