Al Avila: Pair of Detroit Tigers top prospects could make debut in 2020

There is little question that the 2020 season is going to be another rough one for the Detroit Tigers.

After finishing in dead last place this past season, there is a chance they win even fewer games this coming season.

That being said, according to Tigers general manager Al Avila, we may get a glimpse into the future as a pair of top pitching prospects could make their debuts in Detroit at some point in 2020.

At the MLB Winter Meetings in San Diego, Avila said the Tigers will go into Spring Training with an open mind regarding top pitching prospects Casey Mize and Matt Manning. Avila added that the ideal plan is to start them both in 2020 and that in 2021 the club will have “an even more open mind.”

Can we just fast forward a couple of seasons?
