The Detroit Tigers again are making roster moves, this time whittling down the number of players in the big league camp to 40 after making their biggest cut so far this spring.

Among those reassigned are notable names such as last year’s Rule 5 pick, outfielder Victor Reyes, along with left-handed pitcher José Fernández, claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays during the offseason. Both were optioned to Triple-A Toledo. Outfielder Daz Cameron and catcher Jake Rogers, two promising prospects that arrived in the Justin Verlander trade, were assigned to minor league camp. Those two rank fourth and eighth, respectively, on our Bless You Boys top 30 prospect list.

The six other players who were reassigned to minor league camp were right-handed relievers Zac Houston and Paul Voelker, catchers Brady Policelli and Kade Scivicque, infielder Kody Eaves, and outfielder Danny Woodrow.

With the spring training minor league short-season beginning on Saturday, the reassigned players can expect to see a lot of playing time on the backfields until the end of the month. The Double- and Triple-A squads will be traveling together to play against their equivalent-level opponents, while the two A-level squads will do the same, meaning that one group will be in Lakeland and the other in an opposing venue on days when they play. You can find the Erie SeaWolves’ spring training schedule here (full schedules for the other affiliates appear to still be unreleased).
