Omir Santos, Brad Thomas Removed from 40-Man Roster

The Tigers have removed catcher Omir Santos and Brad Thomas from their 40-man roster and optioned both to triple-A Toledo.  This is a procedural move that will result in both players becoming free agents.  If he never plays another major league game, Santos can say that he played in a playoff game.  After being added to the post-season roster as the Tigers backup catcher, Santos played in one game.  He was the Tigers catcher for one inning of the 10-1 loss to the Yankees in game four.  Brad Thomas had finished the season on the 60-day disabled list with an elbow injury.
