While many of the minor league free agents inked by the Detroit Tigers this offseason have been relatively older players, Gabriel Quintana is just 24-years-old.
The third baseman only reached Double-A for the first time last season, but showed promising power as a member of San Diego’s farm system.
In 130 contests, the infielder batted .241 with a .282 on-base percentage and a .725 OPS. Despite the low on-base numbers, Quintana did contribute 73 RBI, 28 doubles, 20 home runs and a pair of triples.
Additionally, the ex-Padres farmhand chipped in with 53 runs scored and five stolen bases. During his time with Double-A San Antonio, Quintana also played first base and left field.
Considering his power, having the ability to play multiple positions could help the prospect make more of an impact in the Major Leagues.
