Detroit Tigers Top 10 Prospects

According to Baseball America the Detroit  Tigers top 10 prospects in 2011 are as follows:
1. Jacob Turner, RHP
2. Nick Castellanos, 3B
3. Andy Oliver, LHP
4. Francisco Martinez, 3B
5. Daniel Fields, OF
6. Casey Crosby, LHP
7. Chance Ruffin, RHP
8. Drew Smyly, LHP
9. Avisail Garcia, OF
10. Jose Ortega, RHP

It seems like biggest impact from these prospects could be Andy Oliver who had a  taste of the show last year, Casey Crosby although that is questionable as he is recovering from injury yet again, and Chance Ruffin a reliever who was moving up through the system quickly.

Turner, we have to believe is still a year away although he will see some spring innings and Castellanos will need to seasoning in the minors before seeing any Major League time and has to be considered at least two years away.
