2020 BYB Tigers Prospect #18: Bryant Packard impressed in his pro debut

The main flaw in the Detroit Tigers’ rebuilding effort remains the dearth of quality hitters at all levels of the farm system. Beyond Riley Greene and Isaac Paredes, there isn’t a whole lot to get excited about yet, but Bryant Packard may help them change things in the years to come.

The Tigers 5th round pick in the 2019 draft, Packard quickly left short season A-ball behind to impress with a combination of discipline and power not often seen in a West Michigan Whitecaps uniform in recent years. By season’s end, he’d even jumped to Lakeland for a taste of Florida State League action.
