Detroit Tigers non-roster invitees have already started to make an impact in camp as Spring Training continues. Here’s a look at the non-roster invitees to watch over the course of the rest of the spring.

Detroit Tigers players were back in action on Saturday against the New York Yankees.

While the game ended 11-1 with the Tigers on the losing end of the scoreboard, there were still positives to be had.

Jordan Zimmermann fired off two shutout innings to start the game, while Arcenio Leon and Angel Nesbitt combined for 2.2 scoreless innings and four strikeouts.

Detroit only mustered six hits and one run, but Omar Infante made an impact.

Starting at third base, the veteran non-roster invitee went one-for-two with an RBI double. He would alter make way for Dominic Ficociello, who himself is having a fine spring camp.

As Spring Training progresses, Infante and Ficociello are two of a handful of non-roster invitees to watch.

Considering Detroit’s roster is mostly set, there won’t be too much competition for roster spots. However, the Tigers certainly aren’t short of options.

Here are a few non-roster invitees who you should be watching for as the calendar inches closer to April.
