Opening day for the Detroit Tigers is next Thursday. As they continue to get ready to start the season at the New York Yankees, the Tigers reassigned two players and optioned another to Toledo on Saturday morning to narrow their roster down to 25 players.
Outfielder Andy Dirks and pitcher Adam Wilk were the two players reassigned to the Tigers' minor league camp. Infielder Danny Worth was the player optioned to Triple-A Toledo. This means that guys like Brayan Villarreal and Brennan Boesch and Casper Wells have made the opening day roster, which is as follows (via Bless You Boys):
This roster is always subject to change in the next few days if the Tigers decide to make a move, but Jason Beck reports that is unlikely. As a result, it appears that these 25 players will be headed to New York to get the 2011 season started.
