Weekly recap of the Detroit Tigers’ farm system

Hello, Nation. It has been two weeks since our last recap of the minor league play in the Detroit Tigers organization. But we’re back to our regular Monday breakdown.

The Tigers have made some rather significant moves lately from their minor league squads. They recently called up outfielder Tyler Collins from Triple-A Toledo to add some bench depth. And yesterday, they purchased the contract of shortstop Dixon Machado from Toledo as well, after starter Kyle Lobstein was placed on the 15-day DL with a shoulder problem. Machado was hitting .274 with Toledo and was second on the team in hits, and will more than likely be sent back down before Detroit plays on Thursday against the Los Angeles Angels, as Toledo Mud Hens starter and Tigers prospect Buck Farmer will make his season debut in place of Lobstein.

Let’s see how the rest of the Tigers’ farm system has been doing lately.

Weekly recap of Tigers’ farm system

The 2015 Detroit Tigers are off to a historic start, having won ten of their first twelve contests. They have now won each of their first four series on the season, including a record of 8-1 against teams from their own division. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is pushing all the right buttons so far, after going through a spring where he had to answer a lot of questions about different areas of his ball club. So far, he has already had to call up pitchers Blaine Hardy and Kyle Lobstein from Triple-A to fill in for injured pitchers Joe Nathan and Justin Verlander. All in all though, Ausmus really could not have asked for a better start to the season.
