5. Daz Cameron, 21, OF, 6-2, 185: He, too, was one of the prizes the Tigers insisted upon when Verlander was forwarded to Houston last August. The Tigers had liked what they saw during a June-July-August spree when Cameron, then playing Single A ball for the Astros, had these OPS numbers in successive months: .849, .906, and 1.026, including a .460 on-base percentage and .566 slugging that forged his August OPS (.377 batting average). Cameron, of course, is the son of ex-big-leaguer Mike Cameron and was a first-round pick in 2015 (37th overall) as he departed Eagle's Landing Christian High in McDonough, Ga. The Tigers liked him a lot during last October's instructional camp — his approach, his power, which seems to be gaining as he adds years and muscle — and will give him a shot at Double A Erie once Florida camp adjourns. A serious kid who works hard. Not much to not like about Cameron.
