Living in Grand Rapids, I've been able to enjoy watching Tony Giarratano play for the Whitecaps. Any projections on where he'll start out the season?

I don't know for certain, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him in AA Erie as the starting SS and spend the entire season there. That sounds about right to me.

I dont have a link, but Im pretty sure he has been invited to ST. They want to see where he is in his development.

Along with Granderson, Giarratano is our highest rated non-pitcher. Unfortunately thats not saying a whole lot. He projects to be an avg SS in the ML universe - he wont be an allstar anytime soon, but you never know.

I don't think he has anything left to prove in A ball, which is why I said he'll start in AA Erie. Although, if they take it slow and give him a little more time at the highest A level before moving up, I don't think that would be a bad thing. He does seem to have the rep of being a mediocre hitting prospect, but from what I've seen, he's a real sleeper to improve.

AA tends to be a turning point for many Tiger prospects (just like with Granderson last year), so we'll just have to see. But as with all Tiger hitting prospects, it's best to temper your expectations until they make it big.
