MLB Pipeline has Tigers taking Jackson Jobe at #3. Meyer and Leiter going 1 and 2.
Tork 3-3 with 2 bb tonight. Average up to .286 now and obp all the way up to .438
needs to play in AA. He should be putting up stats like that in A ball
You’d think Tork and Dingler have to be moved up to Erie soon.
I think there is some non-baseball interest in having those guys in Grand Rapids for a bit now that it is High A, along with the baseball interest of having them do it for a couple of months before moving them up.
I'm glad Rogers is hitting a bit, but he looks like a fucking idiot. A thumb with a mustache.
I would guess by end of June. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Cabrera moved to Erie as well.
Where we at with nick quintana?
He played SS this year in Toledo…
Can’t be any worse than Castro and Goodrun
Crash Davis made it back to the majors as a coach!
Wasn't there something related to his service time near the end of 2015 when the Tigers could have called him up and he would have vested into health care or something, and they didn't?
Do most hitting coaches in the league suck ass at hitting in the majors?
All the guys that hit well in the majors are so rich they don’t need to coach
Ask Marcus Thames
Thames was at least serviceable
His .256 average with 26 HR on the 06 team would probably make him best hitter on the current team...
Think he had 1st or 2nd highest ops on that 06 team iirc
Agreed, but is best hitter on this team really an accomplishment.
Lol ok Al
Let’s trade Spencer Turnbull for the next Dawel Lugo.
With Torkelson and Dingler, the discussions on a potential promotion from High-A West Michigan have begun.
“We’ve been pondering that, because we’re very excited about Dingler and Torkelson at this point,” Avila said during a Friday afternoon session with reporters discussing the state of the organization. “Obviously they were struggling, particularly Torkelson, and now he’s bounced back and he’s showing why he was the first pick [in last year’s MLB Draft] and why Dingler was the [Tigers’] second pick.
“We've actually been already talking about it. It'll come. We'll let you guys know when we make that decision, but at some point if they continue to do well, it's just a natural progression. I would even include Daniel Cabrera on that one. He’s also coming around and putting together a very solid season."
Who thought giving Al a mic in the middle of a game is a good idea?
I’m sure his trade offer proposals on voice are much worse too
Just fire this idiot. Nice guy though.
This is just a repeat of the same shit Avila has said the past 5 years.
Someone ask Avila about the $14 million in awful contracts he dished out this year.
Norris - $3.5 mil
Ramos. - $2.0 mil
Jacoby - $2.7 mil
Mazara - $2.0 mil
Tehran - $3.0 mil
He’s funding Iran too? What a scandal.
After 3-3 2 bb yesterday tork 2-2 so far today with a 3b
avila said during tigers game they’re going to start giving him most of the playing time at 1b. Smart move. Let him focus on bat.
So everyone can stop pretending they drafted a 3rd baseman?
Love the guy in the foreground waving the runner around then putting up the stop sign
Double away from cycle
Better video of that bomb
He almost hit a 3 run homer the prior at bat too. Flew out to warning truck.
Pretty sure Avila called him "Torkenson" on the broadcast tonight
Trei Cruz has a .253 ops....
How about Daz hitting a bomb to tie it?
that was awesome. Really, really hope they let Daz, Hill (when healthy) and Paredes roll a bit and give them a shot. At least Hill and Cameron are good defensively, and they're both swinging it well this year.
Avila won the trade.
Vinegar Strokes Top 5 MLB 2021 Draft.
Yo smeegsgreen . Norris getting DFA after the game?
No but he deserves to be
I think Manning is the only pitcher on 40 man roster in minors (besides Wentz who is rehabbing).
