Canberra has pulled off a huge coup with Detroit Tigers' prospect Cam Warner set to join the Cavalry for the Australian Baseball League season.

Warner, a Canberra product, heads home for his first ABL season after two highly successful years with the TCU Horned Frogs resulted in his name being called at the MLB Draft.

The 23-year-old infielder was picked by the Tigers in the 28th round on the back of successive selections in the All-Big 12 First Team.

Warner starred for the Horned Frogs in 2017 as they fell one step short of the NCAA Championship Series.

He hit .284 with five home runs and 49 RBIs and then went on to play 31 Minor League games after joining the Detroit organisation.

Warner hit his first Minor League home run playing Rookie-Ball on July 14 and finished the season with a batting average of .294.

He will provide a huge boost to the Cavalry's infield stocks as they look to build on last season's fourth-place finish.

Warner's brother Ben played three seasons with Canberra from 2011 to 2014, hitting .222 across 58 games.

The Cavs open their campaign on the road against two-time defending champions Brisbane on November 16, before their home opener on November 23.
