Will Tigers trade best prospects?
I hear fans bring up the name of pitcher Jacob Turner all the time. It's unlikely a circumstance will arise where he is traded. Center fielder Daniel Fields and third baseman Francisco Martinez might be different.
Both are 20. They are easily the Tigers' best position player prospects. Both got off to slow starts this season, Fields at high Class A Lakeland, Martinez (who will turn 21 in September) at Double-A Erie. Both have come on strongly in May.
Each player is handling themselves well for their age at a relatively high level of the minor leagues and have physical skills, including bats which project as major league regulars. But it will be awhile before they have an impact in the major leagues. Tough call.
