Ever since the moment the Detroit Tigers selected P Casey Mize with the top pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, he has been referred to as the No. 1 prospect in the Tigers Minor League system.
No matter which publication you chose to look at, Mize was tops on the list, and there really was not an argument for anyone else to unseat him.
On Tuesday, MLB Pipeline released their updated prospect rankings and the Tigers have a new leader on the board. Supplanting Mize as the Tigers’ new No. 1 prospect is none other than 3B, Spencer Torkelson, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the recent 2020 MLB Draft.
Here is a look at how MLB Pipeline ranks the top 10 players in the Tigers system.
Nation, do you think Torkelson should be the No. 1 or is Mize still the top prospect in the Tigers system?
