From a June 12th article:
“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.”
