2018 MLB Winter Meetings: Detroit Tigers roster and payroll update – Bless You Boys

The 2018 MLB Winter Meetings begin on Sunday in Las Vegas, Nev. News, rumors, signings, and trades will all come together in the blink of an eye over the course of the five days. Detroit Tigers fans came to expect big things from their team during the meetings under former president and general manager Dave Dombrowski, but a change in organizational philosophy has the team shopping in a different aisle these days (we’re trying to be patient about that).

Whether the Tigers are big spenders or not, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them make a few moves at the Winter Meetings. The club has been busy this week under Al Avila in years past, including last winter. With holes at shortstop, catcher, and potentially elsewhere, it’s possible that the Tigers could find the players and deals they are looking for out in the desert this week.

Before we get to the busiest week of the offseason, now is a good time to take stock of the Tigers’ current assets. After a few under-the-radar additions and a couple key departures, the roster may look a little different than you remember.

First, the 40-man roster

The Tigers currently have 38 players on their 40-man roster.
