To mostly everyone’s surprise, the first few picks of the 2021 MLB draft opened up with none of the highly-regarded shortstops being among the first two picks. Then, it became the Detroit Tigers turn with the No. 3 pick and they selected Jackson Jobe from Heritage Hall in Oklahoma City, OK.
Which is great for Jackson, but for Tigers fans — who wanted a shortstop — are not happy. Who are they taking their frustrations on, General Manager Al Avila.
There is a chance that Jobe can progress into an effective starter for the Tigers in the future but as of right now, the opportunity to grab another young bat goes to the wayside, much to fans further dismay.
