It takes years to decide whether a draft class panned out or not, but Tigers general manager David Dombrowski has to be feeling good about his 2015 haul after watching the Connecticut Tigers Thursday.
Three top picks helped Rookie League Connecticut cruise to an 11-2 blowout win over Lowell. The group included first-round pick Christin Stewart, who went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs, second-round pick Tyler Alexander, who allowed one hit, one walk and notched four strikeouts in four innings, and fifth-rounder Cam Gibson, who ripped a grand slam in a 1-for-5 night.
