DateQuestionAnswer
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Can any of the Tigers' minor league free agent signings crack their top ten prospects right now?
(Eddie Bajek from Jacksonville, FL)
I'm not sure I would go quite that far with a group that includes guys like Rafael Dolis, Alberto Cabrera, Jefry Marte, Xavier Avery, Tim Melville, and Omar Duran, but it is probably closer than it should be given the state of the Tigers system. (Mark Anderson)
