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.
He’s currently playing with Detroit’s High-A affiliate West Michigan Whitecaps, and Tigers GM Al Avila has now provided a better idea of when fans can expect to see him at a higher level, as well as Dillon Dingler.
Tigers have started discussions about when to promote hitting prospects Spencer Torkelson and Dillon Dingler, GM Al Avila said. Both are currently at High-A West Michigan.

Al Avila on possible Double-A promotions for Spencer Torkelson, Dillon Dingler: "We’ve actually been already talking about it…. At some point, if they continue to do well, it’s just a natural progression."
Said you could include Daniel Cabrera in that conversation, too.
