Final Predictions for Who Will Make the Detroit Tigers Roster

The 2013 season gets underway next Monday as the Detroit Tigers travel to Target Field in Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Twins.

However, before the team heads north, it needs to cut its roster down to the required 25 players that can be carried until September 1.

The depth charts may be written in pencil for a few weeks as plans made in Lakeland play out in reality, but those 25 names are in indelible ink.

This projected roster is made with the assumption that the Tigers will carry 13 position players and 12 pitchers. With a number of off days built in to the April schedule, there is not such an urgent need for a fifth starter and the Tigers could go with 14 position players and only 11 pitchers.
