The Tigers announced today that they have added six players to fill out their 40-man roster. They purchased the contracts of left-handed pitcher Charlie Furbush and shortstop Cale Iorg from Triple-A Toledo. They also added right-handed pitchers Lester Oliveros, Jose Ortega and Brayan Villarreal and left-handed pitcher Duane Below from Double-A Erie.
Since the 40-man roster has already reached its limit, players will have to be dropped as the Tigers add new players through free agency and trades. There is going to be a lot of movement this winter. Right-hander Zach Miner and infielder Audy Ciriaco seem to be two of the more likely names to be dropped at some point this winter.
