Tigers Minors Matters

In minor league news today, 2003 first round pick Kyle Sleeth will make his first start since September 2004. He missed all of last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery 51 weeks ago. He’ll be pitching for the Lakeland Tigers.

The L-Tigers also found that they will have 5 representatives on the FSL All Star team. Jair Jurrgens, Kevin Whelan, Jeff Hahn, Chris Robinson, and Jeff Frazier made the team. Surprisingly Jeff Larish didn’t.

Finally, L-Tiger Victor Mendez won the FSL player of the week award and Whitecap Ramon Garcia won the Midwest League pitcher of the week award.

    Great to see the young guys doing well. We are now just reaping the benifits of a decent draft and farm system. I think we are ready for the future and have the option of supplmenting with free agents. DD has done a great job. Lets keep Jim Leyland here and win a couple throphys.
