Tigers assign Robowski, Morrison to Minors camp


LAKELAND, Fla. -- The Tigers made their second batch of roster cuts this spring, assigning pitchers Ryan Robowski and Michael Morrison to Minor League camp.

Both pitchers were non-roster invitees who were in big league camp for the first time. While the Tigers wanted them to get the experience with Major League instruction, they didn't expect either of them to compete for a roster spot. With other pitchers needing to stretch out their workload as camp rolls on, there weren't enough innings to go around.

Morrison, a 25-year-old right-hander, pitched in three games, allowing three runs on two hits last Saturday in a split-squad game against the Yankees. He struck out four and walked three.

Robowski, also 25, gave up six runs on four hits in two innings. He last pitched on Feb. 28 against the Rays.
