(WILX) -- The three day major league draft is underway-- 40 rounds and the Detroit Tigers better hope they hit the jackpot on some prospects-- in my view their only hope to become a playoff contender again.
They can't pay the big bucks for free agents and they can't take on monster salaries in trades.
They have to develop players from the ground floor up and hope they draft wisely.
It's always a guessing game and currently, but for pitcher Casey Mize, last year's first pick in the draft, they have precious little in terms of talent as I see it to benefit the big club in the near future.
