Tigers Top Catching Prospect Leaves AFL With Injury

Another top prospect leaving the Arizona Fall League. 

Detroit Tigers catching prospect Dillon Dingler has left the Arizona Fall League due to knee soreness. 

Dingler had tests on his knee to determine the extent of the damage but they came back negative. No surgery is required and he is expected to be fully healthy for Spring Training. 

Dillon Dingler was the Tigers' second-round draft pick in 2020 and slashed .238/.333/.419, with 14 home runs, 58 RBIs, one stolen base and 56 runs scored across 107 games at the Double-A level this season. 
Dingler had four hits in eight at-bats during his time in the AFL with the Salt River Rafters. 

The twenty-four-year-old prospect is looking to be the catcher of the future for the Detroit Tigers. He is the 10th-ranked prospect in the Tigers' organization.
