Tigers add 8 young players to 40-man roster.
Mlive

The Detroit Tigers added eight young players to their 40-man roster on Monday, protecting them being selected in next month's Rule 5 Draft.

The Tigers selected the contracts of outfielder Michael Gerber; shortstop Sergio Alcantara; catcher Grayson Greiner; and left-handed pitcher Gregory Soto; and right-handed pitchers Gerson Moreno, Spencer Turnbull and Eduardo Jimenez.

They chose to leave unprotected right-handed pitchers Paul Voelker and Adam Ravenelle; infielder Kody Eaves; and outfielder Jose Azocar.

Additionally, the Tigers signed left-handed pitcher Ryan Carpenter to a Major League contract.

The Tigers now have 39 players on their 40-man roster, leaving room to make one selection in the Rule 5 Draft on Dec. 14.

The draft allows teams to poach players from other clubs who haven't been protected on the 40-man roster.

A longer list of forgettable names I have not seen. But thereís intrigue in this season, in that there are so many new players.

That the Tigers are signing guys like Hardy for nothing and scrubbing the Minor League FA market illustrates the dearth of talent home-grown and the unwillingness of Chris Ilitch to spend money on players. Not that this is the season to open the spicket, but CI never will.

How you you know? It's his first off season and it was expected.
