Where the heck are the undrafted free agents? Did they all take naps after the great draft?  I don’t know if the Tigers are sandbagging or if their heads are in the sand.

Maybe no prospects want to sign with us because they know our system is so deep that they won't have a chance to make it./sarcasm

They haven't cut anybody either, so I wonder if they were really interested in the less than deep talent pool that was available.

Al's sparkling personality is winning over undrafted FAs. He's just rather stealth about it. Sort of like the unabomber

From a June 12th article:

https://www.mlive.com/tigers/2020/06/as-undrafted-free-agents-go-up-for-grabs-tigers-will-be-shopping.html

“We’ll have a list of players that we’ll have interest in. We’ll have them in preferential order. There’ll be a group of players, and it’ll be a pretty good sized list,” said Tigers general manager Al Avila. “Obviously there’s no guarantee that you can sign the guys that you have on the top of your list, but you go and pursue and try to sign them.”

 

Avila said there’s no minimum or maximum number of players the club has in mind. They’ll just do their best to sign the ones they want.

 

What would the Tigers say to a prospect who has several offers?

 

“We do feel that in our situation right now, having what we feel is a great organization, where we have a good track record of developing players, there’s going to be opportunity,” Avila said. “There’s going to be the best and most modern technology and analytics to help a player develop. We have a great and experienced coaching staff. And we have opportunity. Obviously we feel that’s going to be a very attractive place for people to come and sign with us under these circumstances.”

I have to believe Cabrera is where they try to get under-slot to make up for the over-slots

I hope so cause I would really hate to lose Workman cause I think he has a chance to be the real steal of the class.

They will be under slot on tork, I think.

Under slot but more than the $8.1MM for 1-1 last year.

Boras almost guarantees that... A WAG: $8.25MM.

What is slot for 1-1 this year? $8.47-ish...?

Fangraphs added all the 2021 picks to their respective teams rankings.  Tork comes in at 3rd in our system and 38th overall followed Dingler 10th, Cabrera 14th, Workman 23rd, Colt 26th and Cruz at 30th.

It's worth noting though that they put a major emphasis on your floor and how close you are to the majors, more so than many other sites and since most of those guys are higher upside with short track records they are going to be ranked very conservatively.   If those guys have solid debuts they will surely shoot up our rankings.

Where are the "so called" Tigers Beat Writers....I have not read a single article talking about 2020 MLB Draft undrafted Free agent signings and why the Tigers have either not announced any or they have not signed any. I would think this would be an article that would be on the top of any sports journalists list.
