When the Detroit Tigers were on the clock with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft, they had a golden opportunity to select SS Marcelo Mayer after both the Pirates and Rangers passed on him.
But, instead of taking who many had slotted as the No. 1 overall prospect in this year’s draft, Tigers GM Al Avila decided to select high school pitcher, Jackson Jobe.
Following the pick, a plethora of Tigers fans took to Twitter to bash Avila for his decision.
In fact, so many took to Twitter that #FireAvila began trending within minutes of the pick.
Nation, what do you think about the Tigers passing on Mayer?
