Derek Hill shouldn't be forgotten. The Tigers drafted him twenty-third overall in 2014 for a reason. If it wasn't for a couple of big injuries, he'd be talked about as a top prospect in all of baseball. He's still only twenty-one. He still has a lot of time. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Derek to talk about his journey so far in the minors. Here's what he said:
Let's take it back to draft day, how'd it feel getting picked in the first round?
Hill: "It was the best day of my life to know that all of that hard work paid off and that I was about to be given the opportunity to do what I love so much. It's what I've dreamed about since playing my first game."
