2019 was an abysmal year for Detroit Tigers fans, but for a young team in the midst of a rebuild, MoTown baseball supporters have a lot to look forward to in 2020. Al Avila and Co. have rebuilt Detroit's farm system into one of the best in all of baseball, and the upper-echelon on those youngsters could very well make their Detroit debut next season.

While Casey Mize gets the organizational praise, Manning arguably has more potential. The RHP has spent time in Erie and Toledo in the past season-plus, meaning a call-up to the bigs is possible after the All-Star Break. He'd be a welcomed addition, along with his fellow future ace.

2. Casey Mize

The former Auburn Tiger and No. 1 overall pick has found his stripes quickly in the minor leagues. Detroit selected Mize in part due to his collegiate experience, making for a rapid rise though their system. Just this past season, he threw a no-hitter and established himself as the best prospect in Detroit's ranks. A late-season call-up to the bigs seems like an assurance if Mize stays healthy.

1. Isaac Paredes

Paredes is the best position player in a Tigers' system which lacks much of just that. Detroit's top prospects are pitching-heavy, but Paredes is an exception. He projects as a shortstop, and is a solid enough bat to survive right away in the bigs. At just 20, he's one of the most exciting players in the Tigers' system.
