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
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!
