The Detroit Tigers traded away one of their final big chips Wednesday night: second baseman Ian Kinsler. Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reported the return for Kinsler: right-handed pitcher Wilkel Hernandez and center fielder Troy Montgomery.
Hernandez was ranked 24th in the Los Angeles Angels system per MLB.com’s 2017 Prospect Watch. He is an 18-year-old signed out of Venezuela at the age of 16. In 2017 he pitched in 12 games total at Rookie ball, compiling a 2.64 ERA over 44 1⁄3 innings.
Montgomery was ranked 20th in the Angels farm. He is a 23-year-old currently at the Double-A level. In 2017 he batted .271 with an OPS of .771 and eight home runs across three minor league levels and is projected to be a fourth outfielder at the MLB level.
