Minor League Rosters Announced

The Tigers organization made the official announcements of their minor league rosters today. The rosters below were compiled from posts at TigsTown (and Mark Anderson – @TigsTownMark), Motown Sports, and Nick Underhill’s site.

A couple of things worth calling out:

  • Audy Ciriaco and Cody Satterwhite are both starting their seasons on the DL. In Satterwhite’s case it is a torn labrum.  While I don’t know the severity this is often a career-altering type of injury.
  • 2009 second round pick Andy Oliver will receive the aggressive assignment to AA meaning he has a chance to see time with the big league club in 2010.
  • Another 2009 pitcher, Adam Wilk will be pushed to Lakeland after successful stints at the lower rungs in his debut year.
  • The Toledo team is pretty stacked and the infield and outfield should provide some exciting nights at Fifth-Third field. That crowded outfield forced Ramirez to Erie even though he spent last season at AAA. Jason Beck notes that he will get the bulk of his reps in centerfield so the move may me as much about defense as offense.
  • Take 75 North and TigsTown both covered some of the cuts/retirements that are a little surprising including Brett Jensen and Jordan Newton.

      He’s at Lakeland. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Speaking of Crosby, is he really not ready for double-A yet?

      I could see Crosby getting pushed to Erie during the season, but the Lakeland assignment is fine for now.

    And where is Fields?

      James Robbins is another top prospect who will start in extended spring training and like Fields will join a short season roster in June.

    I believe that Fields is going to start out in EST. He’s recently been moved to centerfield, so they probably want to give him some time to get acclimated to the position.

    Luis Marte and Brooks Brown were both shifted to the bullpen? Brown wasn’t too exciting but Marte has posted solid K:BB ratios. He gave up too many home runs, but shouldn’t a team that’s desperate for starting pitching depth have given Marte more of a chance? Maybe his injury history played into the switch.

    The plan all along with Marte was for him to be a bullpen arm.

    Just one thing to clarify . . . Brandon Hamilton is not on the disabled list, he’s on the inactive list.
