2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mark, Give me one name in the Tigers organization who will be in A ball or lower next year that's a sleeper, and why. Thanks.
(Marlin Scurti from Clinton Township, MI)
Ben Verlander will get talked about because of his name and bloodlines, but he should be talked about because of his skills. He has a chance to bust out a bit if he can take to playing everyday.

A couple of other names worth nothing include Harold Castro, Javier Betancourt, Steven Fuentes and a big one is Joe Jimenez. (Mark Anderson)
2013-05-30 13:30:00 (link to chat)As a Tiger fan,nice to see Nick Castellanos's recent run.How is the conversion to LF going and do you ever see him moving back to 3B.Also,very encouraging to see Harold Castro's start in the FSL.Should I temper my enthusiasm and what do you see in Castro's future?
(Chad from Florida)
The transition to left field has been slow for Castellanos. He has spurts where he looks like he has figured things out and then follows that up with stretches where he looks pretty brutal out there still. Ultimately, I think he ends up an average outfielder and I don't think the Tigers have any intention of moving him back to third base. As for Castro, his success in High-A has been a very nice surprise. The kid can flat out hit the baseball. I would temper your enthusiasm a bit, as I'm still not cnvinced he will spend the rest of the year there. If he starts to struggle, he could head to the NYPL to get on a more standard developmental track. He's got some interesting tools aside from his hitting ability, with some gap power, decent speed and some projection with the glove. The second base only profile that he currently holds is a tough one to fulfill from the complex leagues all the way to the Majors, but he's going to be fun to follow. (Mark Anderson)
