DateQuestionAnswer
2019-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any players at the upper levels of the Tigers' system that can be impactful on the ML roster in 2020/2021? The AAA roster still has Candelario and Stewart, but there's Joey Morgan, Frank Schwindel (27yo, I know), and Daz Cameron among the hitters. The injured Beau Burrows is the only pitcher I could foresee if I squint hard enough. AA doesn't seem much better. Any hope for Tiger fans?
(ironcityguys from urban area)
Good question. Not much to be excited about a Tigers fan unfortunately. Wouldn't mind seeing Schwindel soon. Cameron's past season, was... un-encouraging to say the least.

You got Casey Mize who is legit, but... yeah, not much to look forward to at the moment IMO. Sorry! (Tyler Oringer)
