2020 MLB Draft: Tigers add more bats, Astros make first picks on Day 2

June 11 (UPI) -- Less than 24 hours after taking Arizona State slugger Spencer Torkelson with the No. 1 overall pick, the Detroit Tigers used their first four picks on hitters during the second day of the 2020 MLB Draft.

The Tigers selected Ohio State catcher Dillon Dingler with the No. 38 overall choice to lead off Rounds 2-5 Thursday. Detroit then grabbed LSU outfielder Danny Cabrera at the No. 62 spot before taking Rice shortstop Trei Cruz -- the son of former big leaguer Jose Cruz Jr. and grandson of Jose Cruz -- just 11 picks later.


Detroit picked another Arizona State prospect in the fourth round, adding Torkelson's switch-hitting teammate Gage Workman. The Tigers drafted both players as third basemen.

While the Tigers focused on adding offense, the Miami Marlins turned their attention to pitching. The Marlins took pitchers with their first five selections, including right-hander Max Meyer at No. 3 overall Wednesday.


Miami drafted high school prospect Daxton Fulton at No. 40, followed by Ball State right-hander Kyle Nicolas (No. 61), Coastal Carolina right-hander Zach McCambley (No. 75) and Vanderbilt left-hander Jake Eder (No. 104).

The Houston Astros had to sit out the first day of this year's draft after having their first- and second-round picks stripped by MLB commissioner Rob Manfred as part of the organization's punishment for illegally stealing signs.

After another wait Thursday, the Astros finally made their first selection by taking Mount Saint Michael Academy (N.Y.) right-hander Alex Santos at No. 72.

This year's draft was shortened from 40 rounds to five due to the coronavirus pandemic. Undrafted players can sign with any club for a maximum $20,000 bonus.
