25 Man Roster Prediction

Alright, pitchers and catchers report soon and I’m in a predicting kind of mood.  This is who I think the Tigers will take with them to New York when the break camp for their home opener.  A lot of these are no brainers, but I’ll also leave my comments where I think they’re appropriate.

Position Players

1)  Victor Martinez
2)  Alex Avila
3) Miguel Cabrera
4a) Carlos Guillen (but he’ll start the season the DL, so there will be 26 names on the list)
4b) Scott Sizemore
5) Will Rhymes (Sizemore and Rhymes will split time at second until Guillen comes back)
6) Jhonny Peralta
7) Brandon Inge
8) Ryan Raburn
9) Austin Jackson
10) Miguel Cabrera Magglio Ordonez
11) Ramon Santiago
12) Don Kelly (he’ll play outfield and the Tigers are also going to have him work as a third catcher)
13) Casper Wells (he’ll beat out Brennan Boesch as the primary fourth outfielder)


14) Justin Verlander
15) Max Scherzer
16) Rick Porcello
17) Brad Penny
18) Phil Coke


19) Jose Valverde
20) Joaquin Benoit
21) Joel Zumaya
22) Ryan Perry
23) Dan Schlereth
24) Brad Thomas
25) Robbie Weinhardt

Brennan Boesch, despite his breakout first half in 2010, will start the season in Toledo and he and Strieby should make a formidable pair there.  Andrew Oliver would have made a nice option instead of Weinhardt but I’m guessing they want to stick with him as a rotation option so he’ll be the ace in Toledo.  Jacob Turner will shine, but like Oliver, he’ll be the Hens ace but probably see himself in Toledo by year’s end.

Not sure if you noticed, but you have Miguel Cabrera twice. I assume one is Magglio.

Yup, or I’m hoping Magglio hits like Cabrera this year.

I kind of hoped they had lifted the ban on cloning and it was a younger version of Cabrera playing RF this year.
