The Legend of Akil Baddoo

PostTue Apr 06, 2021 5:23 pm

I may be the only downtrodden Tiger fan left here, but, has anyone seen what this kid is doing? Rule 5 pick, never played above low A ball. Makes the team as the 5th OF out of spring training.

First game: Homers off the first pitch he sees.
Second game: Grand Slam HR.
Third game: Walk off line drive single in the 10th with 2 outs.

Slashing .500/.500/1.250 with 2HR and 6 RBI's.

Quite a start.

As a Twins fan, I’m shaking my head how they didn’t protect this guy who only got as high as single A ball before he was snatched in Rule 5. Today he comes back to walk them off today after getting the Slam yesterday. The Tigers are building a good team!

Baddoo update. Only a run scoring triple and his first outfield assist today.

Ho hum......

I saw him on tv in a spring training game. He was my last pick in a yahoo fantasy baseball draft since he impressed me that day. I'm sure glad for him, and me too, that he is doing well.

Exciting splash...but weird with the rule 5 status if the Tigers sour on him that he automatically reverts back to the Twinkies
