Will Tigers’ top 2 prospects make Opening Day roster? It sure looks like they’ll get the chance.
The Tigers confirmed Wednesday that the two top prospects will play in the Arizona Fall League. An Opening Day roster spot won’t be won or lost in a few weeks worth of exhibition games in front of empty stadiums in Arizona. If the Tigers had wanted to avoid such a trap, they could have simply left them in Double-A Erie. * The Tigers have openings or potential openings at first base (Tork’s position) and the outfield (Greene’s territory). Avila said both players will be in the big leagues in the “not-too-distant future.” That doesn’t necessarily mean Opening Day, but Avila didn’t slam the door on the idea.mlive.com
