Stewart's goal: 'Get to The Show and stay there'

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 18:51:34 EDT

The stretches when Christin Stewart looks every bit the power-hitting outfield prospect the Tigers desperately need in their rebuilding plans are easy to find.

The thing that stands out about Dawel Lugo is that he produces velocity. Whether it's with his arm in the infield, or off the bat at the plate, he sends baseballs going in a hurry. That caught the Tigers' eye when they were looking at position prospects to snare from the D-backs' system in a J.D. Martinez trade back in mid-July.
