Will Detroit Tigers go with big bat or college pitcher in MLB Draft?

Right-hander Kyle Funkhouser out of Louisville is one of the players the Tigers are reportedly targeting in this year's MLB Draft.

With the MLB Draft less than a week away, Tigers fans are wondering what direction the team might go in with this year’s picks.

Detroit has the 22nd overall pick overall and will also select a player at No. 34 overall with the compensation pick they were awarded for losing free-agent pitcher Max Scherzer to the Nationals.

The Tigers are rumored to have a number of right-handed pitchers high on their board, but MLB.com says there are signs that Detroit could go back to the offensive route for a second straight year.

"I think we’ve proven we won’t go one direction only," Tigers vice president of amateur scouting David Chadd told MLB.com. "We’re open."

A recent mock draft by FanGraphs has the Tigers drafting right-hander Kyle Funkhouser out of Louisville.

From FanGraphs:

The Tigers’ earlier selections also include No. 65 (second round) and No. 99 (third round).

The 2015 MLB Draft will be held June 8 – June 10.
