The Detroit Tigers ran away with the AL Central in 2011 and they appear ready to do so again in 2012. They recently signed Prince Fielder after losing Victor Martinez for the year due to a knee injury.

No one else in the division had a winning record a year ago, and that might again be the case this season.

Of course, we fantasy enthusiasts don't care much about team's records. We just care about player stats.

Let's take a look at some of those players along with a couple of prospects that may make some noise in 2012.
