Tigers make first spring cuts

The Tigers assigned catchers John Murrian and Eric Roof to minor league camp this morning. This is not a surprising move at all and says nothing about the future of either player. Every team brings extra catchers to spring training each year to catch bullpen sessions for the many pitchers in camp. They are often the first to be reassigned once pitching staffs begin to get sorted out. The move leaves 51 players in the major league camp including the 40 man roster and 11 spring training invitees.
