    Seriously, I can’t remember a Minor League Wrap recently without Strieby getting on base 2 or three times. It seems to me that he is exactly the type of hitter that the Tigers need. One who a high OBP and power.

    If you want Strieby to be more enticing, they’re trying him out in left field. Keving Goldstein of BP noticed his performance. He just talked about him in his Daily Update, wondering why he isn’t talked about more as a prospect.
