In the wake of the Tigers acquiring minor league talent over the last several years, it is reasonable to expect some will make it the Bigs and some will not.

What "prospects" in the Tigers farm system are likely to contribute to the future success and what highly rated prospects are liky pretenders and will not contribute to the future.

I think Willi Castro is a pretender.  I don't know exactly why, he just seems off to me.  He had a .653 OPS with Cleveland in AA, and then all of a sudden he has a .928 OPS in 26 games in AA Erie and I'm supposed to believe he magically learned how to hit?

Funkhouser may be oversold and Feado might get some velo back - which could flip those two - otherwise the list looks fair.

I'd put Rogers on the Contenders list, I think he turned a corner last year.  We'll see.

On the "he's better than you think" list - Robson.  😉

Mize, Paredes and Cameron seem to be pretty safe bets to have at least decent big league careers, i.e., play long enough to reach free agency. Everyone else is 50-50 or less.

I'm assuming Deathrage is so much a guarantee he doesn't even need to be listed?

It would be an insult to him to be put on the same list as Mize and Cameron.

None of this matters because in a year all of the players are going to become free agents anyway.

Not if they decide to use my keeper proposal.

I'm pretty sure he meant MTS Jake.
