We couldn’t have asked for more production, excitement, hard work, and fun from these two.— West Michigan Whitecaps (@wmwhitecaps) June 13, 2021
We wish them all the best for this big next step, and we'll be watching them all the way on the road to Detroit.

Tigers general manager Al Avila indicated earlier in the week that call-ups would likely be coming soon for the pair.
"We're very excited about Dingler and Torkelson at this point," Avila said Friday. "They were struggling, particularly Torkelson, now he bounced back and he's showing, obviously, why he was the first pick, and why Dingler was the second pick."
Detroit selected Torkelson with the first overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft, and selected Dingler with the first pick of the second round.
