The Tigers took a step forward in 2021 with many impressive performances, particularly from “The Big Three pitchers”. Next season, Riley Greene and Spencer Torkelson should join the party and while both will have growing pains, they could form the nucleus of what should be a solid lineup. While Greene and Torkelson are the only impact players ready for the Majors, the Tigers have some interesting players that are a few years away including Jobe Jackson, their number one pick in June, and Roberto Campos and Cristian Santana, two recent international signees. The Tigers window should open in 2022 or 2023 and with some financial strength to combine with the talent they have developed, they could give the White Sox a run for their money in the AL Central.
