The Detroit Tigers are currently on pace to lose 100 games in 2021, which would result in another high draft pick in 2022.
But before we worry about the 2022 draft, let’s look towards the 2021 MLB Draft, which will begin on Sunday, July 11.
The Tigers will have the No. 3 overall pick in this year’s draft and according to Keith Law of The Athletic, he has heard their main target is HS shortstop, Marcelo Mayer.
From The Athletic:
3. Detroit Tigers: Marcelo Mayer, SS, Eastlake (CA) High School
I’ve heard Mayer is their main target, and if he’s gone, they could go with the top high school pitcher in the draft, Jackson Jobe.
Who do you think the Tigers should target?
