13 Tigers on World Baseball Classic rosters
Before you read the list, keep in mind two things: These are 45-man provisional rosters, not the final 28-man rosters that will be announced next month, so a few of these guys might not make the cut. Plus, some of these players weren’t going to spring training with the big league club, so they won’t cut into the camp population. With that in mind, here’s the list, sorted by country:
Curtis Granderson, OF, USA
Justin Verlander, P, USA
Miguel Cabrera, IF, Venezuela
Armando Galarraga, P, Venezuela
Carlos Guillen, OF, Venezuela
Magglio Ordonez, OF, Venezuela
Placido Polanco, 2B, Dominican Rep.
Fernando Rodney, P, Dominican Rep.
Fu-Te Ni, P, Chinese Taipei
Cale Iorg, IF, Canada
Max St. Pierre, C, Canada
Andrew Graham, C, Australia
Brendan Wise, P, Australia
