Turner, Oliver, Fields undergo physicals
The Tigers had their top three unsigned picks undergo physicals this morning, part of the process of getting a deal done before tonight’s midnight deadline. Daniel Fields, the Tigers’ sixth-round pick, said he went in for a physical for the club in Detroit this morning, along with first-rounder Jacob Turner and supplemental first-round pick Andrew Oliver. That doesn’t mean they’re all going to sign, but it means they’re still at least a decent shot and still talking. In other words, it sure isn’t a bad sign.
The Tigers have improved their offer to Fields, the outstanding prep shortstop from University of Detroit Jesuit High who must decide between turning pro now and accepting a scholarship to the University of Michigan. He’s being advised by SFX. Scott Boras is serving as the adviser for Turner and Oliver.
