The Baddoo beat goes on. From Baseball America on Wednesday:

Akil Baddoo, OF, Tigers 

The Tigers selected Baddoo from the Twins in the Rule 5 draft last December and have given him considerable playing time this spring. Baddoo has made the most of the opportunity, going 9-for-23 (.391) with three home runs, seven RBIs and more walks (eight) than strikeouts (seven) through his first 12 games.

Scout’s Take: “I can see him sneaking into a regular role with them. They’re in love with him. JaCoby Jones might not see a lot of playing time if he struggles out of the gate. He’s got power, he plays a good outfield, he can do some things. It’s good raw power, plus at least, and he can run. He plays with some energy, takes quality at-bats. The hardest tool we have is the hit tool and how much power is he going to get to? If he can get to 50 game power, and I think he can, that could make him an everyday player.”

Baddoo is in a good position to make the Tigers' Opening Day roster, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The Rule 5 draft pick has turned heads in camp, posting a .391/.548/.870 slash line and flashing solid outfield defense. The Tigers have to keep Baddoo on the MLB roster all year or return him to the division-rival Twins, so that helps his case for an Opening Day spot, too.

Baddoo is slashing .385/.556/.538 with three RBI and six runs scored through seven Grapefruit League games.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The Rule 5 draft pick is battling for a reserve outfield spot and has been helping his cause so far in camp. Perhaps most impressively, the 22-year-old has five walks versus only three strikeouts in those seven games, demonstrating a good approach at the plate.
