NOTABLE INCLUSIONS

The Tigers included catching prospect Dillon Dingler, whom they selected out of Ohio State in the second round of year's draft, among their group. Simply being around the big league group—including a host of extremely talented pitchers—should give him a crash course on life as a professional. Outfielder Riley Greene, the team's 2019 first-rounder, had a couple of excellent cameos in big league camp before the shutdown and is back again for more with the team's Summer Camp. Top pitching prospects Casey Mize, Matt Manning and Tarik Skubal were all included after starring in Double-A last year.

NOTABLE EXCLUSIONS

About the only big name missing from this group is No. 1 overall pick Spencer Torkelson, though he's expected to be added once the ink dries on his contract and his physical checks out. Beyond that, the team included the entirety of its Top 10 Prospects. No. 11 prospect Joey Wentz had Tommy John surgery, so he wasn't a likely addition, but it's a little surprising to not see OF Parker Meadows (No. 12) among the group.

PARTING THOUGHTS

The Tigers have one of the most tantalizing groups of young pitching in the minors, and virtually all of them should be on display again in Summer Camp. Given the weirdness that could happen during a 60-game season, all of those young, talented arms could be weapons if the Tigers find themselves in need.
