Tigers draft, Day 2

Just got off the conference call with the Tigers' VP of Amateur Scouting, David Chadd, and Director of Amateur Scouting, Scott Pleis. I'll have a story on the Tigers' first 29 picks at a bit later (Here's the link to that story.).

Just repeating for those who were unaware, the Tigers lost their first-round pick this year (No. 19) to Boston for the signing of Type A free agent Victor Martinez. It's the second year the Tigers have been without a pick in the first round (last year was for signing Jose Valverde), but last year, the Tigers had a supplemental pick in the sandwich round, where they took third baseman Nick Castellanos.

Here are the Tigers picks, in order, along with local players taken:
