The Tigers cut six more players this morning which means they now have 29 players left in camp.
The latest round of cuts includes: Nook Logan, Alexis Gomez, Mike Hessman, Donald Kelly, Mark Woodyard and Hector Mercado. With Craig Dingman and Troy Percival headed for the 6o day disabled list shortly, this leaves two more cuts to be made by opening day and both will be pitchers.
The bench is now set: Vance Wilson, Omar Infante, Ramon Santiago and Marcus Thames. The bullpen is still unsettled. If we assume that Todd Jones, Fernando Rodney, Jamie Walker, Chris Spurling and Joel Zumaya are locks, that leaves Roman Colon, Jason Grilli, Bobby Seay and Franklin German to fight for the last two slots. There has also been some talk that Franklin may be traded before the season starts.
