The Detroit Tigers have a talented young player by the name of Daz Cameron. The 24-year-old has been raising some eyebrows recently with his impressive stat line. 

Cameron has had success at the plate as he is currently riding a five-game hitting streak after his 1-for-3 performance against the St. Louis Cardinals on June 23rd. During his hitting streak, he is batting .350 with two home runs and six RBI.

Our MLBbro has not been with the Tigers long this season, but his presence has been felt on multiple levels. Through nine games, he’s posting a .242 batting average with three stolen bases, and eight RBI.



And peep this, he made his MLB debut with the Tigers during the 2020 season. He appeared in 17 games and did not hit a home run. Fast forward to this season and he’s already got three jacks in nine games. So there is some pop in the 6-foot-2 185-pound frame of Cameron. 

Now that’s how you make a name for yourself right there. Cameron had a big performance on June 20th against the Los Angeles Angels. With the game tied going into extra innings, the Tigers needed a clutch at-bat and Cameron was the man that came through. 

He hit a two-run single in the 10th inning to propel the Tigers to a 5-3 win over the Angels on Father’s Day. What made it even better was that his father, former 17-year major league veteran Mike Cameron, was in attendance the entire series.



“That was definitely something that I will never forget,” Daz Cameron told The Detroit News. “I was glad to see my family here.”

This brother was on fire the entire series against the Angels. The game before he came through in a big way, he went 2-for-4 with a home run at the plate. 

You know nothing too shabby right? Just another day at the office for Cameron. It has not taken him long to adapt and perform.

Watching him play, you can see that he was made for these moments. He does not shy away from the spotlight and he’s as calm as they come.

With how he’s been playing lately, there’s no question the Tigers have to find a way to keep him in the lineup. A defining moment for Cameron came in his second game of the 2021 season. That’s when he hit his first home run off his career.

And he did it off one of the top relievers in the game, Chicago White Sox’s Liam Hendricks.

“I was just looking to be ready to hit,” Cameron told “He throws hard and his fastball runs a little bit. I just wanted to be sure I got on top of it.”

“It felt good coming off the bat. I squared it up good and when I saw it fly, I knew it had a chance to go out.”



Going forward, our MLBbro will look to keep himself in the Tigers’ lineup and help make an impact on the team. One thing is certain, this kid was born to ball and make baseball better.
