    Zach Maxfield

    Zach Maxfield has a big mountain to climb. He is a 4-year college player, undrafted, signed as a free agent and assigned to the GCL at age 23. Therefore, the "old for the level" tag was in place as of the first day of his career.

    The intriguing thing about Zach is simply his bat. In 2011 at GCL he put up a line of .272/.410/.481, with 4 home runs and 5 doubles in 81 AB's. The plate discipline looks quite adequate with 13 walks against 19 K's.


    His college totals, admittedly not against top-flight competition (Atlantic Sun Conference), are jaw-dropping. His three-year career compares eerily to a full season in the major leagues - 164 games, 649 AB's. The line is .377/.471/.644, and check the counting stats: 158 runs, 180 RBI, 54 doubles, 41 HR.

    No matter what the level of competition, a bat like that deserves a look. And yet he was not drafted. I think that that probably tells us what we need to know about the arm, the glove, and the wheels, and probably the swing mechanics. He needs to make it at 1B/DH, and due to his age he needs to move quickly. He is behind several more accomplished first basemen in the lower ranks, many of of whom are younger. At 6'0", 200, he is a modestly-sized target at first base.

    Zach needs to make it to West Michigan, at a minimum, by the end of 2012. The odds don't seem to be in his favour but he will be an interesting guy to watch.

    With the 59th pick, I'll take another hard throwing pitcher, though this time I'm taking a southpaw, Matt Hoffman.



    He was selected in the 26th round of the 2007 draft out of high school in Oklahoma. Last year spending almost all year in Toledo, he went 2-5 with a 3.18 ERA and only 46 K in 62.1 innings pitched. For someone who throws in the mid 90's the K/9 will probably have to improve as well as his BB/9 rate. He seems to have figured something out last year as his ERA is way down, his H/9, BB/9, and HR/9 have all decreased even though he was in a higher league.

    I know exactly who I want, but he has to survive 13 more picks, and that's certainly not a given. The pressure's on...I can feel it!

    I have a backup plan just in case though.
    Distribution of wealth is not in any way democratic. It is, in fact, tyrannical, in that a very select few own almost all of it, while most have little to no access. To have a country that prioritizes wealth over individual rights is the antithesis of democracy.

    With the 57th pick I select Adam Wilk. I love this kid and hope to see more of him up here this year.

    Was really hoping for my fave Tiger Clete Thomas to fall just a few spots more but it didn't happen.

    I'm interested to see who gets picked between now and when it's my turn.

    Still some intriguing names up there like young pitchers on the 40-man that we might see in Detroit this year: Marte, Ortega, Stohr and Villarreal.

    Nobody has picked Laird yet. Poor guy.

    Of course, there are always people who like to gravitate toward coaches and broadcasters, so there's still a nice selection there for those people. "Mr. I" hasn't been picked yet, so it wouldn't surprise me to see him snapped up soon.

    Some intriguing minor league guys still on the board like Curt Casali, Bryan Holaday, Pat Leyland, Javier Azcona, Brandon Douglas, Cale Iorg, Brandon Loy, Jason King, Jamie Johnson, Tony Plagman, James Robbins, Ryan Strieby, Alex Burgos, Kevin Eichhorn, Fu-Te Ni, Bruce Rondon and Austin Wood.

    I see that one of my former AATs, Justin Henry (2008), has been picked, but three others, Josue Carreno (2011), Ramon Lebron (2010) and Thad Weber (2009) haven't been. Carreno, to me, is the most appealing of those three. Lebron had a nice bounceback year last season after struggling the year before that. Not sure how much longer Weber might stick around in the org.

    Yes, there are certainly plenty of options for the next few picks.

    With the 65th pick in the 2012 MotownSports.com Adopt-A-Tiger Draft Extravaganza, TigersFan81371 selects

    Tommy Collier
    Right-handed Starting Pitcher



    2011 Instructional League Photos by HueyTaxi


    Born: 12/3/89
    Birthplace: Houston, TX
    School: San Jacinto (TX) CC North
    Height: 6'2"
    Weight: 205

    Drafted by the Tigers in the 22nd round of the 2011 draft.

    Collier was recently revealed to be the 31st best prospect in the Tigers' organization, according to TigsTown.com. Here's the blurb from the announcement page (which is available as free content, not subscriber-only content):

    The Tigers “bought low” on Collier in last summer’s draft as he was still working his way back from Tommy John surgery the previous year. Collier’s fastball sits in the low-90s with sink and his curveball and slider will both flash as solid pitches. He has a good feel for pitching and a great frame for added strength. Some scouts see mid-rotation potential in Collier and he should be one to watch in his full-season debut in 2012.
    He came in at #40 on MotorCityBengals.com's Top 50 Prospects List. While digging up info, I also read that he does a good job of setting up hitters and has a pretty good pickoff move.

    Collier made his professional debut with the Connecticut Tigers of the (short season A) New York Penn League. You can see what each of his seven starts looked like right here. Only one of them could be described as bad. You can take a look at the overall season numbers right here. Yes, it's a small sample size, but the ERA (1.85), WHIP (.0974) and K/9 (8.1) all look nice. He only allowed one home run in 39 innings pitched.

    The youngster had himself quite a debut, throwing five shutout innings on July 25th against Williamsport. Unfortunately, the C-Tigers would end up losing the game 4-3, but Collier got some nice coverage from the local paper, the Norwich Bulletin.

    Collier joined the Tigers on Sunday after coming to terms on a contract with the parent club, Detroit. He spent most of the summer with the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod League and stepped right into Connecticut’s rotation with ease.

    He was spotted a two-run lead thanks to single runs in the first two innings by his offense. Going five innings in his debut, Collier allowed two hits, one walk and struck out five.

    “A couple of pitches should have been better, that’s just something I have to work on,” he said. “Overall, I think I did OK. I did very good for my first day, figuring out how hitters are up here. Other than that, I still have some work to do.”
    Collier enjoyed another exciting night on July 31st, when he faced Batavia, as noted by the Bulletin.

    Connecticut Tigers pitcher Tommy Collier had a stretch of about 18 hours that began and ended with surprises.

    The first was a call from his father, who secretly flew in from Houston, Texas, to see Collier’s second pro start. The second was a cooler of ice water being emptied on his head after earning his first career victory, 8-2, over Batavia on Sunday at Dodd Stadium.

    But the biggest surprise, though, is how well Collier has been pitching.

    The 22nd-round pick of Detroit signed his first contract just over a week ago and, in two starts, has thrown 10 2/3 innings, allowing just one run while striking out 12.

    Mixing all of his pitches, Collier took advantage of an overly aggressive group of Muckdogs (21-22). Fourteen of 21 batters saw first-pitch strikes.

    “What I saw (Saturday), a lot of them swung early in counts,” Collier said. “I figured since they lost in 12 innings (Saturday) they would be aggressive again. I used the changeup early and made sure I had command with the fastball on the corners helped me a lot.”
    It didn't take Collier long to establish himself as an important part of the C-Tigers' quest for the NYPL's Stedler Division title. He pitched the biggest game of his young career on August 26th, and the Bulletin was there to cover it.

    Thanks to a 5-0 victory Friday night over Vermont, Connecticut took over first place of the New York-Penn League’s Stedler Division by half a game.

    (snip)

    Collier (3-1) went 5 1⁄3 scoreless innings, striking out six and allowing three hits. He hasn’t allowed an earned run in 11 1⁄3 innings.

    “This was a big game because we’re chasing first place and we want to win our division,” Collier said. “I just wanted to give us a chance to win. When I got myself into a bind, I wanted to handle the adversity as best I can. That was my mentality, just battle through that and get outs for the team.”

    Those hits, along with two walks, put him in a couple of jams, one in the second inning and another in the sixth.

    In the second jam, he loaded the bases on a hit batter, an error and a walk before getting an out.

    Jeff Barfield came in and got the last two outs to finish off the Lake Monsters (33-32)
    Hopefully that experience in such a key situation will serve Collier well in the future. Unfortunately, the C-Tigers fell short of their playoff goal. They finished the season tied for first with the Vermont Lake Monsters, but because the VLM won the tie-breaker (by winning six of the season's 10 head to head matchups), they advanced to the post-season while the C-Tigers went home.

    Collier could find himself in the West Michigan Whitecaps' 2012 rotation, which would be cool because that means I'd be able to watch him pitch in person when the 'Caps come to Midland to take on the Great Lakes Loons (if the rotation and schedule work out that way), or maybe during a summer roadtrip to Comstock Park.

    At about 58 or 59, I saw him availible, and knew that if he was still there, I wouldn't be able to live with myself this season with a prospect or coach, knowing what could have been.

    Thanks again for running this!

    ...and then subsequently, I will choose the next Carlos Guillen, slick-fielding SS with pop and a close to flat K/BB ratio, Eugenio Suarez. Suarez murdered the GCL last year (by SS standards), and even showed plus power in the NY Penn league at only age 19.

    The only decent photo I found was one from the scout.com profile, but I'm not sure of the policy on hyperlinking of photos here, especially if it's Mark's site.

    I select Brandon Loy, a 21 year old SS who ended last season in Lakeland. I just have to hope that the Tigers assign Loy to Lakeland this year and let Dixon Machado mature for another season in West Michigan. I will have more on Brandon Loy tomorrow.

    It will be an interesting predicament where these guys end up. My boy Suarez has certainly earned his ticket to full-season ball. Having too many shortstops isn't a bad problem to have.

    As a high school senior in 2008, Brandon Loy batted 517 and was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 32 round. He didn't sign and attended the University of Texas. As a true freshman, he started all 67 games, 49 of which were at SS and the other 18 at 3B. As a sophomore, he started all 58 games at short. As a junior, he started all 68 games at short, meaning that he started every game of his college career. In his junior year, he was the second leading batter on the team at 342 with one home run and thirty RBI's. He had 283 chances at short and made 7 errors. He was drafted by the Tigers in the 5th round of the 2011 draft. After batting 333 in 15 plate appearances in the GCL, he was promoted to Lakeland where he batted 220 in 41 at bats. His Baseball America scouting report stated that he is a sure fire major league prospect defensively but will probably have to bat at the bottom of the order. I can only hope he works out as well as the last AAT I drafted with the first name Brandon (Douglas) in 2010.

    Your absolutely right, especially if Gustavo gets returned from the Pittsburgh organization. Machado turns 20 next month and his listed weight is 140 pounds and he batted 235 with only 3 extra base hits all last year in WM so he could afford to repeat WM. The only thing I have learned about the Tigers assigning their minor leaguers is that you never know.

    I present:

    EUGENIO SUAREZ
    SS | 5' 11" | 155 lbs.
    Age 20 | Puerto Ordaz, Bolivar, VE
    Bats: Both | Throws: Right

    Described as a "slick fielding" shortstop by scout.com, Suarez ranks as the Tigers' 39th best prospect according to TigerTown, although John Sickles has ranked him as high as 10th. But he doesn't just field, he hits, too. An international signing, Suarez spent his 18yo season with the VSL Tigers putting up an impressive .311/.389/.396 line while providing plus defense and putting up a 23/41 K/BB ratio in 261 PA.

    This performance brought him stateside in 2011, and at age 19 he proved he belonged and then some. He destroyed GCL pitching, putting up a .341/.408/.636 line (good fo a 1.045 OPS) in his first 50 PA, striking out only 4 times and walking 3. The Tigers then sent him to Connecticut, where he maintained his power production and good strikeout totals, posting a .250/.323/.426 line with an 18/43 K/BB ratio in 229 PA. The most impressive thing about Suarez' performance is that after a very aggressive pomotion from the VSL to SS-A within a year, his already good strikeout rate did not go up at all, and Suarez maintained his good power output, hitting 11 2B, 5 3B, and 5 HR, all with a 19yo, 155 lb. frame. Power from the SS position is rare in the post-steroid era, and Suarez has both gap and HR power.

    Suarez has likely earned a ticket to full-season play. From stats alone, Suarez resembles Carlos Guillen, being a switch-hitting Venezuelan SS with power and good strikeout totals, with plus defense to boot. Suarez must continue to work on his pitch selection, however, as his average dropped to .250, but given his age, he has plenty of time to define himself as a blue chip prospect moving forward.
    Distribution of wealth is not in any way democratic. It is, in fact, tyrannical, in that a very select few own almost all of it, while most have little to no access. To have a country that prioritizes wealth over individual rights is the antithesis of democracy.

    Fu did pretty good as a starting pitcher in the second half of 2011 for the Mud Hens, should be fun to follow.

    I'll take Luis Marte this year. I'm actually excited to get a player that good at #77!



    Marte was listed as the 8th best prospect called up to the majors in September 2011.

    Luis Marte spent the majority of the 2011 season at Double-A for the Tigers, but was still offered a September call-up to show his stuff on the Major League level.

    Marte, 24 years old, had a 1.92 ERA and 11.2 K/9 rate in 25 minor league appearances in 2011.

    Cool, hopefully you can nurse him through a whole season and he improves on his control, crossing the fingers!
