2016 Detroit Tigers First Year Player Draft Results
The 2016 First Year Player Draft wrapped up over the weekend with GM Al Avila following the Dave Dombrowski draft playbook pretty closely, by selecting power arms early and often. The one noticeable difference was with Avila willing to shy away from taking a power arm out of college with the 1st round pick and went with Matt Manning, out of Sheldon High school in Sacramento, CA.
Detroit went on to select 4 more pitchers with their next 4 picks and selected 19 overall, including a few local kids. It does seem as if they have an interest in any player name Dalton however.
