Tigers farm director Glenn Ezell was interviewed on Around the Minors. He had a lot to say about the Tigers farm system and you can listen to the entire interview at MinorLeagueBaseball.com. Here are a few tidbits.
Cameron Maybin should start the season at Lakeland (High A) so the Tigers top two prospects will start there. Should be fun checking out that team but I expect both to be at Double A at some point in the season.
He had a lot of nice things to say about Jordan Tata and Virgel Vazquez, as well as a few other pitchers in the farm system.
Tigers 2003 first round draft pick Kyle Sleeth was mentioned and Ezell said he’s talked to him and liked his frame of mind but wasn’t sure how that would equate to on field performance. He didn’t rule out a breakout though.
