Tigers Activate Ryan Raburn From DL, Call Up Several Others

The Detroit Tigers added five players, including activating Ryan Raburn from the disabled list, to their Major League roster as MLB rosters expand from 25 to a maximum of 40 starting today.

Raburn, who was at one time the team's everyday second baseman, has struggled this season, hitting just .172 with one home run and 12 RBIs in 63 games.

Other players added to the roster are infielder/outfielder Don Kelly, infielder Danny Worth, relief pitcher Luis Marte and catcher Bryan Holaday. All five players have been with the Major League club at different times this season.

Yesterday, the team traded utility player Jeff Baker to the Atlanta Braves for a player to be named later and replaced him on the roster with minor league outfielder Avisail Garcia.

Garcia will reportedly make his Major League debut for the Tigers tonight, playing right field and batting eighth against the Chicago White Sox.
