Four More Tigers Assigned to Minors

New, comments

As expected, the Detroit Tigers reassigned a handful of players to the minors today, though the actual number of cuts may have been fewer, and no big names were among those leaving major league camp.

Courtesy of Jason Beck's Twitter post, he most notable cut was Wilkin Ramirez, who's been optioned to Triple-A Toledo. But that was practically a formality, with Carlos Guillen, Magglio Ordonez, and Curtis Granderson returning from the World Baseball Classic this week.

Assigned to minor league camp were infielder Don Kelly, catcher Max St. Pierre, and outfielder Alexis Gomez.

With the cuts, the Tigers' roster now stands at 38 players. Brent Clevlen, Ryan Raburn, and Clete Thomas live to fight on. Though neither Clevlen or Raburn were likely to be among the cuts, since they're both out of minor league options. You might also wonder - as MacRae asked earlier this week - if Eddie Bonine still has an outside shot at the starting rotation or a long relief role, with Jeremy Bonderman's stamina needing work and Dontrelle Willis... well, you know.

Any names you were expecting to see among the cuts today that are still alive?
