2017 Detroit Tigers First Year Player Draft Results

Faedo, Alex 2.jpgThe Tigers kicked off the 2017 first year player draft by taking righty Alex Faedo out of Florida with the 18th pick.  Faedo was once considered as a possibly #1 pick, however a sluggish start due to injury set him back.  The Tigers second pick is an intriguing one as they chose Reynaldo Rivera out of Chipola College.  Rivera is a big lefty with raw power and the ability to hit.  It will just be interesting to see what he does against more talented players.

Other than that, the Tigers draft looked a little different under Al Avila this year, as the team did show a bit more focus on outfield depth, as the team selected five outfielders in their first 18 picks.
