Detroit Tigers (47-114)


Spencer Torkelson has shown Tigers why they took him No. 1

DETROIT (AP) Spencer Torkelson has quickly showed the Detroit Tigers why they drafted him No. 1 overall this year and gave him a $8-plus million signing bonus to get in uniform for training camp.

Torkelson put his power on full display during his first batting practice.

"His first couple of rounds of batting practice have been pretty impressive," Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire acknowledged Monday. "He could definitely do some things. You see why a guy goes number one - right away."
