    The thing about #deathrage is that he's more talented than the usual senior. He's got some tools.

    I don't mind. There's plenty of defensemen in this draft. There's only one Zadina!

    Or even higher, since he was a senior sign, and is 22 now.

    Getting off track a little bit, here are some of the July 2 International Signs that the Tigers are looking at, courtesy of MLB.Pipeline (yes, BA also has the Tigers in on these two top players)... Jose De La Cruz | Rank: 15 Hometown: Fantino, Dominican Republic Position: OFAge: 16 DOB: 01/03/2002Bats: R Throws: RHeight: 6'1" Weight: 195 lb. Watch Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 50 | Arm: 60 | Field: 50 The team that signs De La Cruz is going to have a lot to work to do now and in the future. The teenager has lots of raw power -- some evaluators think he has some of the best raw power in the class -- and he is considered a great overall package with lots of tools. There is some swing-and-miss in his approach at times, but De La Cruz performed well in games in the JDB Baseball League in the Dominican Republic, where his instincts and natural abilities took over. He's very athletic with a strong and projectable body. De La Cruz is known as a decent runner now, and the hope is that he can maintain his speed as his body develops. He has a strong enough arm to play the corner outfield positions, but he'll likely start his professional career in center field. De La Cruz is from Fantino, Dominican Republic, and trains with Cristian Batista. The Tigers are the favorite to sign him. Adinso Reyes | Rank: 19 Hometown: Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic Position: SSAge: 16 DOB: 10/22/2001Bats: R Throws: RHeight: 6'1" Weight: 195 lb. Watch Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 50 | Run: 50 | Arm: 50 | Field: 55 The 6-foot-1, 196-pound Reyes has grown in the past year and his overall game has improved, too. The infielder already shows a good approach at the plate with decent power and a good hit tool. There's belief that Reyes will show more power with an improved swing and a focus on his overall hitting mechanics once he signs with a team and enters its academy. He can already drive the ball out of the ballpark. He also consistently runs a 6.8-second 60-yard run. On defense, Reyes shows good hands and a good arm. There's a chance he will end up at third base because of his skill set and his body type, but the team that signs will start him at shortstop and let him play his way out of the position. Reyes, who played in a few events in the International Prospect League in the Dominican Republic, performs well in games. Overall, he's a competitor who has been praised for his intensity on the field and how he really enjoys playing the game. Reyes is from Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, and is trained by Angel Gonzalez. The Tigers are the favorite to sign him.

    Not ahead, but he's got to be a top 150, imo.

    Daz belongs on that list.

    He had better control than Miller imo.

    Maybe a tick behind Verlander.
