We are now nearing the latter part of August and for a team going nowhere fast, it is completely fair to take a peek at the coming seasons, imagining what the team might look like.
Are there players on this year’s team who will have future roles with the Tigers? What qualifies them for a spot in 2020 and beyond? It certainly begs more questions and answers.
Kurt and Holly have not shared their answers to the following question for the purpose of offering a wider range of perspectives.
So let’s get on with it and see what our writers have to say.
Let’s ignore, for the time being, the issues surrounding holes in the roster and not enough suitable candidates within the farm system. Which players (not named Miggy) would our two bloggers deem worthy of keeping on the roster going forward in the future?
I looked for players who separate themselves in any phase of the game that make them important future pieces heading into next season for the Tigers – and 5 have qualified.
My selections are based upon players who are solid/excel in more than 1 category and would be a certain multi-year roster member on an MLB-competitive team, not just a temporary fill in until a suitable prospect develops.
