Never even heard of this guy! That'd be awesome to get another quality bat come forth from our depth!

He went to the same high school as me. One grade younger. Good to see the local guy making the squad after a big spring. Highly doubt he has any fantasy value. He is going to be in a back up role and only see playing time vs. the occasional lefty.

After I saw him on Dr. Phil I immediately placed him on my Do Not Draft list.

He's directly related to the 2 former Tuiasosapou's in the NFL, one was a qb, not sure where the other relative played. Anyways, he has athleticism in his blood, and I really like his bat speed. He made the Tigers today offically. Not sure he will have much fantasy relevance, but watch out if Hunter, Jackson or DIrks get hurt! He will be making the starts against lefties to spell Dirks....so maybe tops 250 AB, should there be no injuries. I'd keep an eye him, kid can hit for ridicilous power.

He will not get that many ABs. For the record, he only made the team as a RH bat because Avisail Garcia, who many are very high on, hit the DL.

So as soon as Garcia is back, Tuiasosopo will likely be sent down. Doubt we hear much of anything from him this year. Betting less than 50 ABs.
