Detroit signs Detroit draft pick.  Yawn.  BFD.  I want to see a headline where Detroit signs someone else's draft pick.

It looks like the top pickers are all the same teams, except Toronto is joining the party.  Don't any of these rebuilds succeed in rebuilding?

They're just being very thorough.

My son graduates high school, so he is draft eligible.

Mine, too.  Switch-hitting 2B.

There will be 8 teams in the College World Series after 2 elimination games today.  The following draft choices will be involved and not able to sign until their team is eliminated next week.

Michigan - #33 Jimmy Kerr

Texas Tech - #11 John McMillon

Arkansas - #8 Jack Kenley

Mississippi - #6 Cooper Johnson and #22 Cole Zabowski

North Carolina - #9 Austin Bergner

Those last 3 schools are in elimination games today.

 

After today's elimination games, you can scratch North Carolina and Mississippi from the list.

BREAKING: heard from a scout that Tigers will Trade Nick Castellanos, who will no longer play for Detroit. In turn, they'll receive a future Tiger who will become a member of the Detroit organization that plays in Detroit. #tigers #MotorOn #moron #motorboat

Looks like a nice swing and good defensive form and he's wearing a bit of dirt.  But his socks ain't high enough.

Does he have wheels?  Is he gritty?  Does he rarely strike out?

I am thinking he may be one of those rare middle infielders that can hit at the top of the order.

As a side note, the Tigers actually drafted another player not noted above out of UNC. Luca Dalatri, a pitcher, was picked in the 40th round. Interesting story. He finished his junior year this year. The last two years he has missed the majority of both seasons with an arm issue and recently had surgery in Minnesota to address a hip issue that has bothered him since before he arrived at Carolina. His freshman year he was outstanding. At the start of 2018 he was the Friday starter before his health became a factor. He actually started a game in last years College WS. I don’t know what his intentions are. He’s a big kid with a lot of talent but hasn’t been able to stay on the field. If he’s healthy, he is a much much better pitcher than Tiger draftee Austin Bergner. Bergner was up and down this season but finished strong. I would guess Dalatri comes back for his senior year to prove his worth toward the draft next year. All about his health at this point.

Well, he would have no leverage as a senior, even if he has a good year. Look at what really good seniors have been getting. Better to get full $125,000 now, and get pro medical and training.

Kona Quiggle? He needs to make the show even more than Funkhouser does.

A shoo-in for the All-Name team.

That emphatically stated, Kona Quiggle also needs to make the show.

Having Quiggle, Quintana, Funkhouser and Deatherage on the same team would be pretty sweet.

I'm not familiar with Jeff Ellis, but he's saying nice things about the Tigers draft.

I got to see a few play in the cws. Cooper Johnson is a solid catcher. Jack Kenley has good pop (saw him hit 3-run homer) in a small frame, similar to Tommy LaStella. Kreidler has a good frame and played a decent ss.

Looking forward to watching John McMillon play against Michigan this weekend. I've seen Tech a couple of times this year in passing, but I haven't noticed McMillon.
