The Detroit Tigers farm system consists of nine Minor League Baseball affiliates across the United States and in the Dominican Republic. Four teams are independently owned, while five—the Lakeland Flying Tigers, two Gulf Coast League Tigers squads, and two Dominican Summer League Tigers squads—are owned by the major league club. The Tigers have been affiliated with the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens of the International League since 1987, making it the longest-running active affiliation in the organization among teams not owned by the Tigers. It is also the longest affiliation in the team's history. Their newest affiliate is the Connecticut Tigers of the New York–Penn League which became the Tigers' Class A Short Season club in 2010. Geographically, Detroit's closest domestic affiliate is the Toledo Mud Hens of the Triple-A International League which is approximately 54 miles (87 km) away.

The minors operated with six classes (Triple-A, Double-A, and Classes A, B, C, and D) from 1946 to 1962. The Pacific Coast League (PCL) was reclassified from Triple-A to Open in 1952 due to the possibility of becoming a third major league. This arrangement ended following the 1957 season when the relocation of the National League's Dodgers and Giants to the West Coast killed any chance of the PCL being promoted. The 1963 reorganization resulted in the Eastern and South Atlantic Leagues being elevated from Class A to Double-A, five of seven Class D circuits plus the ones in B and C upgraded to A, and the Appalachian League reclassified from D to Rookie.
