Tigers future taking shape with Spencer Torkelson, Kody Clemens, other top prospects

Rain slammed the Tigers during Monday’s game against the Blue Jays at Marchant Stadium’s Publix Field.

Not that it overly bothered Spencer Torkelson and Kody Clemens, a pair of infielders who have been enjoying October during the Tigers’ five-week Instructional Camp at Lakeland, Florida.

Torkelson in Monday’s first inning got a 2-2 fastball and drove it high into the sky and onto the berm beyond Publix Field’s left-field wall. For those analytically scoring at home, the ball had a 39-degree launch angle and 104-mph exit velocity, which typically will beget a home run even when a mean breeze is blowing in, as it was Monday.
