Tigers Invite 16 to Spring Training

The Tigers released a list of 16 non-roster invitees that will be appearing with the club in Lakeland on Wednesday, including some familiar faces.

Here is what the list looks like:

LHP Tim Byrdak
RHP Craig Dingman
LHP Felix Heredia
RHP Jair Jurrjens
LHP Bobby Seay
RHP Dennis Tankersley

Gabe Johnson
Dane Sardinha
Steve Torrealba

Brent Dlugach
Mike Hessman
Kevin Hooper

Cameron Maybin
Timo Perez
Ryan Raburn
Brandon Watson

A few of these guys were signed to minor league deals in mid-December, including Watson, Sardinha, Tankersley and Heredia. Seay and Perez were signed last week.

One familiar name on the list is Craig Dingman, who had a major league stint with the Tigers a couple years back. It's good to see that he has recovered from a very scary sounding injury that occurred prior to last season. I hope that he bounces back nicely and perhaps can contribute to the team pain-free.

We're closing in on Spring Training, as pitchers and catchers will report to Lakeland on February 15th. Can't wait!
