8 days to go: Plenty of future major leaguers have stopped in Erie on their way to the bigs.HEAD-HAT_FC

This season, prospect Tyler Collins could fit that bill.

Collins hit eight home runs in 2011 in the New York-Penn League after being drafted in the sixth round by the Tigers.

In 2011, the outfielder hit .313 in 168 at-bats.

Last season, Collins, rated the No. 7 prospect in the Tigers’ organization by Baseball America, had a .290-7-66 line in Lakeland.
