By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob An athletic young player who has not been able to crack the big leagues with the Mets or Athletics, Marte has very long odds of making the Tigers' Opening Day roster. February 22, 2015 Tigers non-roster invitees: the catchers By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob There are four catchers not on the 40-man roster with the Tigers in Lakeland this year, but none will make the Opening Day roster. February 20, 2015 Luke Putkonen looking to bounce back in 2015 By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob After a solid 2013 season, Putkonen missed nearly all of 2014 due to injury. February 18, 2015 Who is Josh Wilson? By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob A well-traveled middle infielder, Wilson is one non-roster invitee who probably won't see any time in the major leagues this season. February 17, 2015 Who is Tim Melville? By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob Previously a starter in the Kansas City Royals' farm system, the Tigers signed Melville to a minor league deal this offseason. February 15, 2015 Who is Aaron Westlake?

By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob This spring is Lennerton's best chance yet for making an MLB roster. February 8, 2015 Who is Omar Duran?

By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob Krizan's chances of making the Opening Day roster improved after Victor Martinez's injury. February 2, 2015 Who is Rafael Dolis?

By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob A former second round draft pick, Avery probably won't see much time (if any) at the major league level in 2015. January 26, 2015 Who is Alberto Cabrera? By Rob Rogacki@BYBRob A 26 year old right-hander, Cabrera spent the past nine seasons pitching in the Chicago Cubs organization.
