Drafted in the 5th round (163rd overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2010 (signed for $152,100)
The team's top prospects were lefthander Alex Burgos and outfielder Hunter Ovens, with Burgos figuring to go out higher with his polish and three-pitch mix. Burgos was the team's top performer, going 13-1, 1.42 with 109 strikeouts and just 29 walks in 95 innings. His fastball can touch 92 mph, but he pitches at 88-89 and lacks projection with his 5-foot-11, 180-pound body. He has picked up a cutter that plays well with his big curveball, and he's throwing all three pitches for strikes. His profile is as a reliever or end-of-the-rotation starter.
