MiLB.com has kicked off their organizational All Stars series and the Tigers review went live over the weekend. The Tigers farm system is still pretty thin from all of the trades they’ve made since their last World Series appearance in 2006 but there’s still a few people to get excited about. I mentioned Brandon Douglas over the weekend at second base and he shows up here. A few people have also asked me if the Tigers might go after Aramis Ramirez but I think Nick Castellanos is a reason why the Tigers might hold off replacing Brandon Inge to see if he’s the third baseman of the future.
Of course then you have guys like Timo Perez, who had nice seasons in the minors but who are a decade past their prospect status. Anyway, it’s a good read but I didn’t recognize the author’s name. Then again, I haven’t stayed with a lot of this stuff so Ashley may have been with the team for a while now.
