Fangraphs

Derek Hill, CF, Detroit Tigers
Level: Double-A   Age: 23   Org Rank: 22   FV: 40
Line: 3-for-5, 2B, HR

Notes
We’ve been all over the place on Hill because for a time, we thought he had made relevant swing changes that might enable him to hit for enough power to profile every day. After last year, that 2017 blip of production seemed like noise, and we again considered Hill a glove-first bench outfield prospect. If his first three games — 8-for-15, three extra-base hits — are a sign of things to come in 2019 then we’ll have to reconsider once again. We think the appropriate time to do this is about 50 balls in, or after about a month’s worth of games. Hill has clearly been passed by Daz Cameron in the eyes of the org (Daz is younger and at Triple-A), so even if he legitimately improves, it may be hard for him to find playing time with Detroit.

Comerica Park is he most spacious park this side of Yellowstone. If Hill and Daz can both hit MLB pitching, there's room for two plus gloves in the OF.  

Been a Tigers fan for decades...people were thrilled about the potential staff in the late 70's/early 80's...guys like Morris, Petry, Rozema, Mike Chris, Pat Underwood, Bruce Robbins etc...  I think this group we have now rivals that group.  It's also telling that of thoser names, only two became key members of a Championship ball club.  Pitchers...so fragile and mercurial

yeah, I don't worry about playing time when it comes to prospects.  If a guy can hit and field, they will find a spot for him.

50 balls in...

Sounds like a brothel in Nevada

I remember when CoPa opened, thinking the Tigers should get a bunch of speedy OFers who can slash the ball to the gaps. It's crazy how few they've had in the last 19 years. Hill and Daz profile very well for this park.

Cold from this big storm system should be cleared out by next Wed. Hard to see anything else keeping Mize in FLA.

Erie weather can turn back into 40 degrees into mid May. i think he's in FL until early June.
