Detroit Tigers player continue to make their way through Grapefruit League play. With Opening Day getting closer, the team is starting to make roster moves to get closer to the unit that will head to Chicago.
Detroit Tigers fans have seen plenty of encouraging signs during Spring Training.
What’s more, Jones has struck out just four times in 24 at-bats.
Alaniz and Leon potentially give the Tigers two added bullpen pieces for the coming season.
The likes of Machado, Jones, Ficociello, Alaniz and Leon will be worth watching down the stretch in Spring Training as none are locks to make the team.
However, that could conceivably change with more solid displays.
With Opening Day continuing to linger on the horizon, the Detroit Tigers have made a handful of moves to pare down the roster—per a series of tweets from the Tigers’ official Twitter account.
"“The #Tigers today have optioned RHP Myles Jaye to Triple A Toledo.”"
"“Additionally, the #Tigers have reassigned C’s Austin Green and Grayson Greiner and OF’s Mike Gerber and Jason Krizan to minor league camp.”"

Of the duo, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Greiner make his Major League debut in the coming seasons seeing as he made his Triple-A debut towards the end of the 2016 campaign.
Meanwhile, Gerber and Krizan will provide outfield depth in the upper minors.
So far in his minor league career, Gerber has done nothing but stuff the stat sheet, becoming one of Detroit’s top prospects in the process.
Krizan on the other hand is another intriguing option considering he can play all three outfield spots, as well as first base and second base.
