The Detroit Tigers selected a major part of their future with the 1st overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft, taking former Arizona State 1B Spencer Torkelson.
Of course, another rising prospect in the team system is Dillon Dingler, a second-round selection in the 2020 MLB Draft. And now, both players have been promoted.
