    Promotions for Greene and Tork? To Toledo maybe, but not to Detroit

    Detroit – Riley Greene and Spencer Torkelson, the Tigers top two position player prospects, have been abusing Double-A pitching over the last seven days

    Greene is hitting .524 and slugging 1.24 with a 1.80 OPS with four homers and 12 RBIs. Torkelson is hitting .429 over the same stretch, slugging .905 with a 1.33 OPS, three home runs and seven RBIs.

    But don’t even think about it. Neither is coming to the big leagues this September.

    “We can squash that dream for this season,” Tigers manager AJ Hinch said Sunday. “We want them to develop fully in the minors and they are doing a great job.”

    That’s not to say there won’t be a promotion for one or both. It is being discussed among the Tigers’ player development staff whether there is value in promoting them to Triple-A Toledo next month.
