Released Luis Marte (RHP)
The first cuts of big league camp have come, and none are terribly surprising. While there might have been some hope that Crosby could have challenged for a spot in the Tigers bullpen, it was always more likely that he would start the season in Toledo working on his new role. Meanwhile, starters like VerHagen and Ray got valuable experience, but were always known to need more seasoning.
The lone pure release of the group is Marte, who struggled over four games of spring action. He had been previously removed from the 40-man roster back in December, after missing most of 2013 due to shoulder issues.
