When the MLB First-Year Player Draft begins on June 4, the Detroit Tigers will be left waiting for quite a while before they can decide which new prospects to start adding to their system. Detroit doesn't have a single pick until almost the end of the second round, holding the 91st overall selection. After that, their second pick will be the 121st overall selection, so the top prospects in the draft will likely be long gone when the Tigers get their shots at their top picks.

After round four, they will have the 26th pick in every round.

The Tigers would normally have held the 27th and 38th overall selections, but those picks were given to the Milwaukee Brewers because Prince Fielder signed with Detroit.
