The Tigers trimmed the first 12 players from big league camp today. As expected Rick Porcello was among those sent out. What wasn’t a given was his destination. But now we know his contract was optioned to Lakeland.

The other players to be set to inor league camp are: Armando Galarraga, Macay McBride, Jeff Gerbe, Joe Bowen, Dusty Ryan, James Skelton,Jeff Larish, Danny Worth, Matt Joyce, Wilkin Ramirez, and Clete Thomas.

Those earning a longer look include infielders Mike Hollimon and Scott Sizemore.

    No surprises there, but I bet the Whitecaps are sick about not getting Porcello. Would have drawn thousands to the games.

    The first cuts of Spring always make me think of that Simpson’s episode where Homer is the coach of the pee-wee football team. “Milhouse, you’re cut”….
